The OSHA’s guidelines use the term musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) to refer to a range of injuries and conditions, including:
■ Muscle twists and back injuries from repeated use or overexertion;
■ Tendinitis caused by repeated movements;
■ Carpal tunnel syndrome - a tingling sensation in the hand and arm caused by a pinched nerve in the wrist;
■ Rotator cuff injuries (a problem in the shoulder);
■ Trigger finger from repeated use of one finger.
