Musculoskeletal disorders

MUSCULOSKELETAL DISORDERS

Musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) extend to almost all occupations and sectors, bearing critical physical and economic consequences for the sufferer: workers, families, businesses, and governments.

These ailments are considered the most common labor medical problems among workers in the European Union.

 The continual exposure of workers to different labor risks leads to these disorders and despite their varied forms of appearance; they can be classified into two broad groups:

Accumulative (upper and lower limbs)

Dorsolumbar injuries

Each year, a high number of European workers suffer work-related MSD in the back and shoulders, tendinitis, and carpal tunnel syndrome.

The International Labour Organization establishes musculoskeletal disorders as “acute, chronic, and those that can impair the function of different body parts”. It states that the work itself triggers the musculoskeletal disorders, depending on  some factors regarding the workplace and the worker.

The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work,  classifies these factors into physical, biomechanical, organizational,  psychosocial, individual, and personal categories.

 

ACUTE LOW BACK PAIN

Low back pain occur when you feel pain in the back from the level of the lowest rib down to the gluteal fold, with or without radiation into the legs .

An episode of low back pain is called acute if it has arisen for the first time in your life, or after a pain-free interval of at least six months, and lasts no longer than six weeks.

If you suffer Low Back pain you should become able to:

  1. Understand that low back pain is a symptom with many causes, and undertake a practical differential diagnostic assessment;
  2.  Know and apply the appropriate methods of history-taking, diagnostic evaluation, and treatment;
  3.  Recognise and avoid early risk factors for the chronification of low back pain

LOW BACK PAIN PROGRAM (ACUTE EPISODES)

  • OUR PROGRAM FOCUSES ON:
  • Physical evaluation
  • Pain relief and functional improvement.
  • Adequate patient education and counselling
  • Exercise therapy for the continuation of normal daily activities.
  • Set limits as bed rest and contraindication of some movements.

*** Further diagnostic testing is indicated if there is any suspicion of a fracture, infection, or tumour.

Our physical examination focus in pathological and no pathological functional disturbances. The second ones cannot be adequately demonstrated by imaging studies, especially the following:

  • Segmental dysfunction
  • Sacroiliac joint syndrome,
  • Altered spinal statics (e.g., hyperlordosis or straightening of the normal lumbar lordosis),
  • Muscle dysfunction (e.g., Janda’s crossed syndromes, shortened muscles, trigger points),
  • connective-tissue changes (e.g., swelling, fasciae hypo mobility)
  • Systemic conditions (e.g., incoordination, inadequate deep stabilization, or constant hypermobility

CHRONIC PAIN

Chronic primary pain typically refers to pain in one or more parts of the body that recurs or lasts for longer than 12 weeks.

Up to 30% of Europeans live with chronic pain and two-thirds report that their pain is moderate to severe.

Chronic primary pain may lead to significant emotional distress, anxiety and depressed mood and may cause functional disability and interfere with daily activities.

The back is considered one of the most common locations of chronic non-cancer pain.
