    Occupation-related musculoskeletal disorders are a common clinical problem. Management presents challenges in understanding the factors that give rise to work loss and disability. To improve outcomes, practitioners need to screen for risk factors, understand the demands of work and workplaces and be prepared to actively assist the process of work return. There are limitations with regard to many therapeutic modalities commonly used, though there are many useful adjuncts for the physician in achieving improved outcomes.
