What is musculoskeletal pain?

Musculoskeletal pain refers to chronic or acute pain associated with tissue trauma, overuse, dysfunctional movement patterns, or normal age-related processes. At SoFlo PT we understand the body is a complex kinetic chain of moving parts that are highly dependent on one another. Our goal is to minimize your pain while addressing the underlying cause to optimize movement and function. Each plan of care is uniquely designed to address your specific needs.
