Description:

Work-related musculoskeletal injuries and disorders (WMSD) are a significant issue in the health care

sector. Allied Health professionals (AHP) in this sector are exposed to physical and psychosocial factors

associated with increased risk of developing a WMSD. Clarification of relevant hazard and risk factors for

AHP is needed to improve understanding and inform WMSD risk management. A systematic analysis of

the literature was undertaken to determine prevalence and risk factors for WMSD in AHP. Databases of

Ovid MEDLINE, CINAHL (EBSCO), EMBASE and the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews were

reviewed. This quality of articles was low. Outcome measures were varied, with prevalence rates of

WMSD reported from 28% to 96% over a one-year time period. The lower back was the most commonly

affected body part. Relevant factors identified with the development of WMSD included inexperience in

the role and area of employment. Future research needs to focus on undertaking high quality prospective

studies to determine the factors associated with WMSD development in AHP
