What are Musculoskeletal Disorders or MSDs?
MSDs are injuries and disorders of the soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and cartilage) and nervous system. They can affect nearly all tissues, including the nerves and tendon sheaths, and most frequently involve the arms and back.
How do I know if I have an MSD?
You could have a work-related MSD if you experience any of the following:
- numbness in your fingers,
- numbness in your thighs,
- difficulty moving your fingers,
- stiff joints, or
- back pain.
What causes work-related MSDs?
Work-related MSDs occur when the physical capabilities of the worker do not match the physical requirement of the job.
Conditions that are likely to cause MSD problems include static postures, or positions that a worker must hold for long periods of time, can restrict blood flow and damage muscles.
