What is Musculoskeletal?
Musculoskeletal (MSK) health is essential to a full working life. It supports us with functional mobility and dexterity, balance and coordination, contributes to muscular strength and endurance and is essential to nearly all forms of work.
Why carry out Musculoskeletal assessments?
Providing your employees with a musculoskeletal assessment can help manage and improve their symptoms, for a better working life.
If there are any concerns from the OHA providing the assessment, the employee will be referred to an Occupational Health Physician. The Physician can identify and diagnose Musculoskeletal Disorders and provide advice & recommendations in a report format while informing of the next steps to ensure the employee is safe at work.
Upper limb disorders (ULDs)
The term upper limb disorder (ULDs) is used as an umbrella term for a range of disorders of the hand, wrist, arm, shoulder and neck. It covers those conditions, with specific medical diagnoses (e.g. frozen shoulder, carpal tunnel syndrome), and other conditions (often called ‘repetitive strain injury’ or RSI) where there is a pain without specific symptoms. Symptoms may include pain, swelling and difficulty moving.
Lower limb disorders (LLDs)
Lower limb disorder (LLD) is used for a range of disorders of the hips, legs, knees, ankles, and feet. It covers those conditions with specific medical diagnoses (e.g. osteoarthritis of the knee and hip) and other conditions where there is pain without specific symptoms.
