Whenever the human body exerts itself, the potential for injury is always present. Both your muscles and bones can be subjected to trauma, each with its own set of healing parameters that need to be met to make a full recovery. At Advance Physical Therapy, our team is well versed in treating injuries to both the muscles and bones. To determine the differences between muscular and skeletal pain, please consult with a member of our team.

Symptoms Of Muscular Pain

The muscles of your body can become filled with pain for a variety of reasons. One common way is pushing your muscles too far past their normal range of motion. Another is when they are hit with a blunt force. Overusing certain muscle groups can also be the culprit for this problem. When there is an issue with one of the muscles in your body, you may experience the following:

  • Swelling.
  • Pain whenever you move that muscle/muscle group.
  • Tenderness to the touch.
  • Weakness.
  • Spasms (involuntary contractions of the muscle/muscle group).

Symptoms Of Bone Pain

Much like with muscular pain, bone pain can be debilitating. However, both the causes of this pain and the symptoms experienced vary from muscular pain. Bone pain typically occurs when a blunt force places enough pressure on the bone to inflict damage. It can take place as a result of anything from a fall to a severe car accident. Examples of the symptoms you can experience include:

  • A visible deformity in the affected area.
  • Complete inability to move the affected area.
  • Severe pain.
  • Stooped posture.
  • Loss of joint function.
