This project, part of a wider programme of work across 24 European and other countries, has looked in some detail at the impact that Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) have on the working lives of thousands of European workers, the adequacy of the treatment and support they receive, their experiences at work, the effect of their condition on their family and colleagues, and the human and financial costs involved. Specifically, the study has looked at back pain, work-related upper limb disorders (WRULDs) – two groups of conditions which are usually characterised by non-specific and short episodes of pain and incapacity – and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and spondyloarthropathy (SpA), specific conditions that are often progressive and increasingly incapacitating. The study has been conducted through a review of the recent academic and practitioner research on the relationship between these MSDs and labour market participation, and interviews with acknowledged experts in this field.
