Musculoskeletal Disorders or MSDs are injuries and disorders that affect the human body’s movement or musculoskeletal system (i.e. muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, discs, blood vessels, etc.). The causes of musculoskeletal pain are varied. MSDs can arise from a sudden exertion or repetitive movements, overuse, and prolonged immobilization. Other causes of MSDs include postural strain, Changes in posture or poor body mechanics may bring about spinal alignment problems and muscle shortening, therefore causing other muscles to be injured and become painful.
