Back Pain and Prevention

What are back pain and musculoskeletal conditions?

Musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders include joint conditions such as osteoarthritis, spinal disorders like neck pain, low back pain and prolapsed disc, pain disorders like frozen shoulder and fibromyalgia, strains, sprains and fractures, bone conditions and various genetic and congenital disorders. They can be caused, or worsened, by the work a person does, such as incorrect manual handling, repetitive action, or not having workstation equipment personally adjusted.
