What is causing my musculoskeletal pain?

There are many reasons why working professionals deal with neck, shoulder, back, hip, and leg pain. Some of these causes include,

  • Lifting heavy objects or overexerting yourself when lifting (lifting heavy objects with poor form can also lead to strains and sprains)
  • Poor posture, which can also lead to back and neck pain, particularly for people who sit at desks for hours at a time
  • Repetitive movements, such as grabbing objects from above or hammering can also place wear and tear on certain ligaments, tendons, and muscles of the body, leading to strains, tears, and inflammation
  • Stress can also lead to muscle tension, which can also have an impact on how your body function as a whole
