      This month, Jack talked to Ash James of IPRS – IPRS also kindly sponsored this episode – about the changing landscape of Occupational Health Physiotherapy and Manual Handling training. Tips on sitting up straight and lifting with the knees, this was not!



      Ash took us back in time to the factories of World War II where musculoskeletal injuries were threatening to affect ammunition production. A spike in load? Almost certainly, but the research of the time meant that the disc failure model formed the basis of the earliest workplace safety campaigns. And so a narrative was born: don’t bend with your back if you want to avoid injury…and if you’ve ever attended a Manual Handling mandatory training session in the 21st century, you’ll know how the story went…

        Musicians injuries: Upper quarter motor control deficits in musicians with prolonged symptoms - A case-control study

        https://www.sciencedirect.com/scienc...68781218301486

        Unfortunately this is behind a paywall. I see a lot of full time musicians, a very small handful make a decent living at it and some have their treatment paid for by fans of their work. They are similar to athletes and could really do with the equivalent of a sports science team in their corner.

            Prevalence of work related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) and ergonomic risk assessment among readymade garment workers of Bangladesh: A cross sectional study

            http://journals.plos.org/plosone/art...l.pone.0200122

            Several epidemiological studies have demonstrated evidence of a causal relationship between physical exertion at work and Work related Musculoskeletal Disorders (WMSDs) [3]. Common risk factors of WMSDs are awkward postures, prolonged static work, repetitive movements, manual material handling, forceful exertions and vibration [46]. In addition, job dissatisfaction, stress at work and time pressure comprise major psychosocial factors related to WMSDs [7, 8]. WMSDs not only substantially deteriorate physical and emotional health and productivity of the industrial work force [5, 9, 10] but also the most expensive form of work disability

                    Musculoskeletal injuries and absenteeism among healthcare professionals—ICD-10 characterization

                    https://journals.plos.org/plosone/ar...l.pone.0207837

                    The employees of the healthcare sector account for 10% of the total workforce of the European Union [7], a significant proportion of which are employed in hospitals. While it is known that the manufacturing and construction sectors are theoretically the ones associated with greater danger to employees, the risks to which healthcare employees are exposed cannot be ignored, with some national occupational health reports showing a global incidence of workplace injuries in the healthcare sector higher than in other professional sectors such as those mentioned [8]. According to the Portuguese Central Administration of Health Services (ACSS), in 2013, for every 1000 employees of the National Health Service (NHS), 52.93 were victims of a work accident, 75% corresponding to nursing assistants and nurses [9].

                    Musculoskeletal injuries (MSIs) related to work represent a heterogeneous group of clinical conditions involving the musculoskeletal system that occur by exposure to various risk factors at the workplace [10], and are the predominant lesion of healthcare workers due to the physical demands of their type of work, such as patient handling or push-pull tasks. The most affected regions of the body are the lower back, neck and shoulders and hand/wrist [1113].

                          Do perceived working conditions and patient safety culture correlate with objective workload and patient outcomes: A crosssectional explorative study from a German university hospital

                          https://journals.plos.org/plosone/ar...l.pone.0209487

                          Perceptions of hospital personnel regarding sub-optimal workplace safety and teamwork issues correlated with worse patient outcome measures. Furthermore, objective measures of overtime work as well as objective measures of workload correlated clearly with subjective work-related stress and strain. This suggests that objective workload measures (such as overtime worked) could be used to indirectly monitor job-related psychosocial strain on employees and, thus, improve not only staff wellbeing but also patient outcomes. On the other hand, listening to their personnel could help hospitals to improve patient (and employee) safety.

                              Burden of shoulder and/neck pain among school teachers in Ethiopia

                              https://bmcmusculoskeletdisord.biome...891-019-2397-3

                              School teachers represent an occupational group, which are exposed and appears to be at the risk of suffering shoulder and/or neck pain (SNP) due to their daily work tasks [4] . In a single day, a wide variety of duties and responsibilities may be carried out by school teachers which involve significant use of head down postures, such as prepare lessons, frequent reading, assessing/marking students and writing on blackboard under unfavorable working conditions, especially in low-middle income countries (LMIC’s) [3, 4, 9, 10] . While performing such daily tasks repeatedly for a long period of time using abnormal posture; they might develop pain or discomfort around shoulder/neck body segments [11] .
