How are MSIs treated?

Anyone experiencing MSI symptoms lasting more than a few days should see a health care provider immediately! It is important to describe to them the type of physical tasks associated with your job. The earlier treatment begins, the better the chances of a successful recovery.

Treatment of MSIs may include:

  • reducing activities that cause or aggravate symptoms
  • restricting certain movements
  • applying heat and/or cold
  • physical therapy/massage/exercise
  • medication and or surgery (last resort)
