The most common types of musculoskeletal pain include:

  • Bone pain: Injuries such as bone fractures or other musculoskeletal injuries cause bone pain. Less commonly, a tumour may cause bone pain.
  • Joint pain: Stiffness and inflammation often accompany joint pain. For many people, joint pain gets better with rest and worsens with activity.
  • Muscle pain: Muscle spasms, cramps and injuries can all cause muscle pain. Some infections or tumours may also lead to muscle pain.
  • Tendon and ligament pain: Ligaments and tendons are strong bands of tissue that connect your joints and bones. Sprains, strains and overuse injuries can lead to tendon or ligament pain.
