Strategies for Alleviating Musculoskeletal Pain

About this Research Topic

Musculoskeletal pain is pain that affects the muscles, ligaments and tendons, and bones, and nerves. The causes of musculoskeletal pain are varied. Some of the most common ones are: arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, lupus, osteoarthritis, gout, and ankylosing spondylitis; osteoporosis; injuries such as fractures and dislocations; muscle loss (sarcopenia); problems with the structure of bones or joints, such as scoliosis. People with musculoskeletal pain sometimes complain that their entire bodies ache. Symptoms vary from person to person, but the common symptoms are: Pain, Fatigue, Sleep disturbances. Different types of manual therapy, or mobilization, can be used to treat people with spinal alignment problems. Medications such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) may be used to treat inflammation or pain. Besides these common syndromes and treatments, many other new strategies were investigated which may enrich the treatment of skeletal myalgia.

During the past decades, many trials and new strategies were investigated to test their efficacies in the treatment of musculoskeletal pain. Innovative developments in technique, medication apparatus, and associated technologies have given us the ability to treat musculoskeletal pain with greater precision and efficacy. New perspectives on the pathogenesis of skeletal myalgia could be discussed. Introductions of non-drug therapy with the verify their effectiveness are welcome. Special drug treatment and rehabilitation training methods could be introduced, comparing their efficacies with previous proved effective strategies. Combination strategies will also be a focus of this Research Topic.

Overall, all subjects dealing with pathogenesis, innovative techniques, non-drug therapy, new drug with well efficacy, special rehabilitation and combination strategies are welcome in this Research Topic. All basic and clinical investigations are welcome.
Special focus will be given (but is not restricted) to:
• Anesthetic or anti-inflammatory medications
• Physical or occupational therapy
• Acupuncture or acupressure
• Relaxation/biofeedback techniques
• Osteopathic manipulation


Keywords: • Acupuncture or acupressure • Relaxation/biofeedback techniques • Osteopathic manipulation


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
