Non-articular musculoskeletal pain can arise as a result of tendinitis, bursitis, nerve entrapment syndromes, myofascial pain and fibromyalgia.

It is important to differentiate soft-tissue rheumatism from other causes of pain arising from the joint. The location of pain and

inflammation, and presence of pain only on active range of motion may help to differentiate a soft-tissue problem from a joint problem. X-rays may be helpful by revealing joint problems although it must be pointed out that soft tissue problems can be the cause of pain and disability even when there is an underlying joint pathology.

Soft Tissue Rheumatism and Joint Injection Techniques, article was featured in the Arab Health Magazine Summer of 2006.
