MSDs: what are we talking about?
MSDs (musculoskeletal disorders) are the leading cause of compensation for occupational diseases in France. They affect the muscles, tendons and nerves around the joints and can be recognized by pain and discomfort in movement.
In 2018, more than 87% of these illnesses resulted in time off work or financial compensation due to sequelae*.
MSDs are then responsible for chronic pain such as back pain, particularly in the cervical or lumbar vertebrae. But they also lead to tendonitis in the wrists, elbows or even shoulders.
However, it is easy to avoid these inconveniences.
