Musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders include any injury or disease relating to joints, bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments, accounting for up to 28% of all work-related ill health conditions.
MSK conditions can have a real impact upon an employee’s health, their ability to complete roles and duties and may be made worse with certain tasks. At Latus Health, we aim to support employers in understanding MSK conditions and the impact upon employees and supporting employees in managing their MSK condition.
MSK conditions may include overuse injuries such as lateral epicondylitis (commonly referred to as tennis elbow) and Sub acromial shoulder pain (commonly referred to a Shoulder impingement). Degenerative conditions such as Osteoarthritis which affects all joints, most commonly knees and hips are also classed as a MSK condition.
