Acute MSK Injury
An acute injury is an injury to one’s anatomy that occurs suddenly. Acute injuries can range on their level of severity, with some causing tearing of soft tissues and/ or fractures of bony structures.
Chronic MSK Injury
A chronic injury is classified as an injury that has exceeded a normal timeframe for healing. It can be an overuse injury that becomes chronic. It can be an acute injury that gets re-classified when it does not heal.
Recovery from orthopedic surgery can be a frustrating experience. It can feel slow/ one-dimensional/ and often scripted without evaluation. This does not have to be the case.
