Occupational Medicine – Repetitive Use Injuries
Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) are common injuries and disorders that affect the body’s movement and musculoskeletal system, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, discs, and blood vessels. Various risk factors contribute to the development of MSDs, so it is important to be aware of any aches or pains that may be related to these disorders. Symptoms of MSDs tend to worsen over time and may reoccur. It is crucial to pay attention to any pain that is triggered by specific tasks, motions, or repetitions, and not wait until it becomes severe before seeking help.

If you experience discomfort while working, remember to:
– Be mindful of how you position and use your body during daily tasks
– Ensure your workstation is set up correctly
– Avoid prolonged periods in one position
– Take regular breaks to stretch and move around
– Use furniture and equipment that suits your body
– Maintain a balanced exercise routine that includes cardio, strength training, and good posture.

By following these tips, you can minimize awkward positions and discomfort while working and reduce the risk of developing MSDs. Remember to report any pain or discomfort to your supervisor promptly for further assistance.
