Musculoskeletal aches and pains are extremely common and become more frequent with increasing age. More than one - third of all ' rheumatic' complaints cannot be attributed to defined diseases of the spine, peripheral joints or connective tissues. Many are trivial, self- limiting, and cause little disability. Others can become more troublesome.
The neck, shoulder girdle, back and gluteal regions are the common sites for many of these complaints. Muscular spasm of reflex origin is a prominent feature and must be differentiated from limitation of movement due to structural damage.
Certain factors may be of importance in precipitating attacks in susceptible individuals.
- Exposure to cold and damp has always been suspected as a cause of nonarticular rheumatic' complaints.
- Unaccustomed physical effort, undue fatigue, minor injuries and poor posture have also been incriminated.
Any reduction in muscular efficiency will render an individual more prone to sprains of tendons, ligaments and extra- articular soft tissue structures.
- Diffuse muscular pain and stiffness is common in certain infections, particularly of viral origin such as influenza, rubella etc. Localized pain occurs in epidemic myalgia.
Many anxious and depressed people complain of aches and pains, particularly in the region of the neck, shoulders or lower back.
Symptoms include localized pain and tenderness over the affected part.
There is also limitation of movement due to severe pains.
Rest with hot fomentation will serve improvement.
