Did you know? Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are prevalent throughout the world. MSDs are described as injuries or disorders of the muscles, nerves, tendons, joints, cartilage and spinal discs.
A July 2022 report from the World Health Organization showed approximately 1.71 billion people have musculoskeletal conditions worldwide primarily due to the aging population. While patients who need care should absolutely talk with their provider about the options to minimize pain, they need to understand the therapies available to them.
As you’ll see on their website, the Marquette University Physical Therapy Clinic offers the expertise of specialty-trained, licensed physical therapists and faculty. They offer evidence-based care backed by the latest research and experts from their nationally ranked academic program. Most commonly requested treatments include care for headaches, TMD, neck pain, post-surgical, low back pain and dry needling, just to name a few.
If you need physical therapy treatment now or in the future, consider using Marquette’s fine facility for quality care at a reasonable cost.
