Musculoskeletal pain is a common health issue in the workplace, especially for those who spend extended periods sitting in front of a
computer or engaging in repetitive tasks. Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) refer to a range of conditions that affect the muscles, tendons,
nerves, and other soft tissues in the body. MSDs can cause pain, discomfort, and loss of function, which can lead to absenteeism, reduced
productivity, and increased healthcare costs.
Common MSDs related to the workplace include carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, tennis elbow, trigger finger, and lower back pain. The
causes of these conditions can vary, but they are often related to poor workstation setup, repetitive motions, awkward postures, and
prolonged sitting or standing.
