Musculoskeletal Degenerative Disorders Q&A

Addressing Musculoskeletal Degenerative Disorders for Improved Quality of Life

Musculoskeletal degenerative disorders are conditions that gradually damage bones, joints, and soft tissues. Negative changes in these parts of your body can cause pain, stiffness, reduced range of motion, and even disability if untreated. 

Some common types of musculoskeletal degenerative disorders include: 

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Rotator cuff disease
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Ankylosing spondylitis

Other conditions can also cause musculoskeletal degeneration and may sometimes receive similar treatment. For example, lupus causes muscle and joint pain that can worsen over time. But, since it stems from immune system malfunction, it’s known mainly as an autoimmune disease versus a musculoskeletal degenerative disorder.

Causes Musculoskeletal Degenerative Disorders?

The most common cause of musculoskeletal degenerative disorders is changes related to aging. It’s normal to experience changes throughout your body as you age. Your bones and tissues can slowly loosen, thin out, break down, weaken, and become more vulnerable to injury. 

Injuries may accelerate the development of musculoskeletal degenerative diseases. For example, a joint injury increases the risk of later developing arthritis significantly. 

Genetics can also influence the development of musculoskeletal degenerative disorders, as can your lifestyle and overall health.
