Work related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSD) are an important occupational health issue among all health care workers. WMSD is a collective and descriptive term for the symptoms caused or aggravated by work and characterized by discomfort, impairment, disability or persistent pain.
The serious shortages of nurses are related to increased risk for musculoskeletal disorders during work. The complexity of patient care places nurses at high-risk for injury and high in the list of occupations with risk for work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSD).
Best practices in the rehabilitation of acute musculoskeletal disorders in workers with injuries: an integrative review and analysis More: Systematic Reviews (Reliability of the upper limb tension tests in subjects healthy or with musculoskeletal disorders: a systematic review with meta-analysis).Musculoskeletal disorders, also called repetitive motion disorder, are injuries of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, cartilage, nerves, and spinal discs. It could lead to occupation injury because of repetitive movement, forceful exertion, poor posture, and other factors. Back pain is one of musculoskeletal disorders most commonly experienced radiographers or x-ray technicians. This is.This review aims to systematically review the factors that contribute to musculoskeletal disorder risk amongst workers in the residential aged care industry, to highlight the application of this evidence related to these factors in relevant grey literature, and to undertake a qualitative comparison of the interventions designed and implemented to prevent injury within this population.
Research questions were developed for the explorat ory literature review and, from an initial scan of the literature, hypotheses were developed in relation to the continuing high prevalence of MSDs. Further literature identified through systematic searches was then examined to corroborate or refute each hypothesis. Data gaps were also identified as part of the review. The policy analysis took.
Work-related psychosocial risk factors and musculoskeletal disorders in hospital nurses and nursing aides: a systematic review and meta-analysis. International Journal of Nursing Studies, 52(2), 635-648.
Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of musculoskeletal pain and reported injuries for nurses and nursing aides.

Although there have been a plethora of studies on MSDs, an overall understanding of the prevalence of MSDs and pain can lead to better prioritization.
Review of literature for occupational pain in dental hygiene notes some statistical trends. BY Lori Gallon, RDH. As dental hygienists, we are at risk for work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). Our care of patients' oral health requires us to work in awkward positions and use repetitive motions.

Among some of the health disorders that may be triggered by welding activity are skin, lung and stomach cancer, coronary heart disease, noise-induced hearing loss and work-related musculoskeletal disorders. This paper is an integrative review of how studies are developing with welding apprentices. Of 638 articles, ten met the search criteria. The publications cover genetic, respiratory and.
Professional orchestral string musicians represent a population at risk for performance-related musculoskeletal disorders (PRMD). Research literature suggests the influence of stress in the incidence of work-related and performance-related musculoskeletal disorders. The purpose of this study was to qualitatively investigate the role of holistic health (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual.
Our study also showed that 66.7% of the participating nurses had experienced LBP only after taking on nursing jobs. CONCLUSIONS:The present study demonstrated that nurses working in Jeddah exhibit a high prevalence of lower back pain. In order to reduce the risk of work-related musculoskeletal disorders among nurses, the physical therapist's role is vital and nurses' practice of relaxation and.
More importantly, a systematic review pointed out that using loupes was found to be beneficial for reducing musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) that are common among dental professionals, especially those in the hands, arms, and shoulders. The study found little evidence, however, that loupes were effective for easing neck pain. Other articles indicated the importance of using loupes for dental.
Background. Musculoskeletal pain is the most common cause of incapacity among nurses. This study aimed to report the prevalence of musculoskeletal pain among hospital nurses and to explore the associations of work-related psychosocial factors and mental health problems with musculoskeletal pain.

The purpose of this paper is to examine the literature concerning work-related musculoskeletal disorders among South Asian immigrant women in Canada. We have focused on SAs because they make up the largest visible minority group since 2006, with a population of 3.2 to 4.1 million people within Canada. This group is expected to remain the largest set of visible minorities until 2031.
In agreement with these observations, a literature review performed by Waters and Dick, 2015, allows matching prolonged standing at work with adverse health outcomes, such as back pain, physical fatigue, muscular pain and even muscular atrophy.
