MSK Musculoskeletal Health Surveillance | Latus Health

MSK Musculoskeletal Health Surveillance

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.

Work Related Musculoskeletal (MSK) Conditions

Prevention – Many work-related MSK conditions can be prevented. This may involve implementing risk assessments regularly, improving communication between employers and employees to report any experienced MSK pain as soon as possible and increased awareness of any roles or areas with a high rate of MSK related absences.

Advice – Latus Health can provide advice to employees on how to manage their MSK condition and information to employers on potential contributory factors that may affect MSK conditions.

Adjustments to Workplace – Workplace factors such as working positions and postures can influence MSK conditions. Assessment and alterations to working environments can help prevent MSK conditions by reducing mechanical load and strain.

Adjustments to Roles – Temporary or Long-term adjustments to roles can help employees manage their MSK condition whilst at work, help avoid potential aggravators and help reduce development of MSK conditions in the workplace.
