Health and Wellness expert Dan Fazio talks about musculoskeletal disorders.

What are musculoskeletal disorders? Repetitive motion injuries like carpal tunnel and low back pain are becoming very common, taking an increasing toll on workplace productivity.

Carpal tunnel is brought about by poor work station arrangement and activities. There are three key contributors:

  1. Duration
  2. Load
  3. Repetition

These factors seem slight while working, but all three often combine to create an inflammatory state.

Our body is designed with capabilities related to different motions. But if we engage in unnatural motion, extended duration or excessive repetitions it can result in an "insult" to our system.
