WHAT IS PAIN?
Pain can affect any part of your body. Some of the most common forms of pain include back and neck pain, joint pain, headaches, pain from nerve damage and pain from an injury.4
The musculoskeletal system is made up of bones, muscles, and the tissues that connect them (ligaments, tendons, and other connective tissue, which are called soft tissues). These structures give the body its form, make it stable, and enable it to move.1
Symptoms of sprains and strains vary depending on how severe the injury is. The muscle, tendon or ligament may just have been stretched, or in more severe cases, some or all of the tissue fibers may have been torn.1,2
