Disorder Name : Musculoskeletal Disorders


The musculoskeletal system includes the muscles and tendons, bones, joints, ligaments and connective tissues of the body, together with the neurological elements responsible for locomotor control. Muscles and bones form a framework that protects and hold in place the vital organs of the body.

Fundamental to the engineering functions of the body is the skeleton, an articulated framework of more than 200 bones, whose function is both to support the body and to help to move it. The joints at the ends of the bones withstand enormous forces. Even a minor injury can cause major disruption to this complex structure.

Musculoskeletal disorders and injury are prime cause of short-term disability (e.g. trauma, back pain) and chronic disability (e.g. arthritis). Many people develop musculoskeletal disorders related to overuse of weak or improperly stretched muscles, tendon or ligaments. Strenuous daily vocational activities such as lifting, bending or prolonged typing, can cause musculoskeletal pain through constant stress on the musculoskeletal system. As the population ages, more and more individuals complain of pain related to osteoarthritis, contracture and degenerative disc disease. All of these disorders may interfere with normal vocational and recreational activities.

In modern system of medicine, the drugs often used in the treatment are antiinflammatory, analgesics, antipyretic, corticosteroids, immunosuppressive and muscle relaxant.

These drugs offer good symptomatic releif but have a number of side effects like nausea, vomiting, acid-peptic disorders, irritation of the gastrointestinal tract, liver and kidney damage, etc. In chronic cases, the treatment is obviously prolonged. The herbal system has a number of medicines that not only provide symptomatic relief but attacks the root cause without any known side effects. Dehlvi Naturals has many useful preparations to treat musculoskeletal disorders.
