Muscle injuries and spinal disc disorders are referred to collectively as musculoskeletal disorders (MSD).

  • Tendinitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Bone fractures
  • You are more likely to develop MSDs as you get older.

SYMPTOMS OF MUSCULOSKELETAL DISORDERS

  • Recurrent pain
  • Joint Stiffness
  • Swelling
  • Dull aches

Our musculoskeletal system can be significantly impacted in any of the following ways:

  • Neck
  • Shoulders
  • Wrists
  • Back
  • Hips
  • Legs
  • Knees
  • Feet

Some MSD symptoms can make it difficult to carry out routine tasks, such as walking or typing, or cause one to have a restricted range of motion.

CAUSES OF MUSCULOSKELETAL DISORDERS

There is typically no single cause of MSDs; rather, a number of risk factors, including physical and biomechanical factors, organizational and psychosocial factors, and individual factors, frequently operate in concert. The majority of work-related MSDs are chronic conditions that develop over time.

Physical and biomechanical risk factors may include:

  • manipulating objects, particularly when bending and twisting
  • Repetitive or forceful movements
  • Awkward and static postures
  • environments that are cold, vibrate, or have bad lighting
  • Fast-paced work
  • standing or sitting in one place for an extended period of time

Organisational and psychosocial risk factors may include:

  • increased workload and decreased autonomy
  • inability to take breaks or switch up postures while working
  • High-speed operations, including those resulting from the introduction of new technologies
  • working irregular shifts or long hours
  • bullying in the workplace, as well as harassment and discrimination
  • Low job satisfaction

Generally speaking, any psychosocial or organizational factors that may cause stress, exhaustion, anxiety, or other reactions, which in turn increase the risk of MSDs, (especially when combined with physical risks).

Individual risk factors may include:

  • Prior medical history
  • Physical capacity
  • (Smoking, exercising infrequently, etc.)

RISK FACTORS

  • Age
  • Occupation
  • Activity level
  • Lifestyle
  • Family history

Certain activities can cause wear and tear on our musculoskeletal system, leading to MSDs. These include:

  • daily use of a computer while seated in the same position
  • Engaging in repetitive motions
  • Lifting heavy weights
  • remaining hunched over at the office

DIAGNOSIS OF MUSCULOSKELETAL DISORDERS

The course of treatment will depend on the underlying cause of the symptoms, so a proper diagnosis is crucial.

When you get a physical, you’ll have

  • Pain
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Muscle weakness
  • Muscle atrophy
  • Reflex tests are another thing they might do because abnormal reflexes could be a sign of nerve damage.

Some imaging tests,

X-rays

MRI scans.

Rheumatic diseases like RA are detected through blood tests.

PREVENTION OF MUSCULOSKELETAL DISORDERS

Age-related increases in the risk of MSDs are due to the natural deterioration of our muscles, bones, and joints; however, this does not mean that MSDs are unavoidable; by taking care of our bodies throughout adulthood, one can reduce their risk of developing these disorders.

In addition to performing daily activities in a safe manner, such as maintaining a tall posture to prevent back pain, being careful when picking up heavy objects, and attempting to limit repetitive motions, regular strengthening exercises and stretching can help keep our bones, joints, and muscles strong.
