Work Related Musculoskeletal Diseases Work-related musculoskeletal disorders

 

Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) are a group of painful disorders of muscles, tendons, and nerves. Carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, thoracic outlet syndrome, and tension neck syndrome are examples.

For the purpose of developing injury prevention strategies, many health and safety agencies include only disorders that develop gradually and are caused by the overuse of the above constituents of the musculoskeletal system.  The traumatic injuries of the muscles, tendons and nerves due to accidents are not considered to be WMSDs or are considered separately. However, there are organizations, such as the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work, that include acute traumas and fractures within in the WMSD group.

  • Distribution, prevalence, and severity of WMSDs.
  • Associations among specialty areas, tasks, risk factors, and WMSDs.
  • Strategies used by physical therapists to minimize the effects and risks of developing WMSDs.
  • Responses of physical therapists who developed WMSDs
