Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are a range of conditions that affect joints (arthropathies), spinal vertebrae and intervertebral discs (dorsopathies), the synovium, muscles, tendons and related tissues, soft tissues, and connective tissues. MSDs were identified as priority disorders in the Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012–2022 (the Australian Strategy) due to the fact that 60% of all serious claims are MSD injuries.

These injuries are generally mismanaged among a plethora of parties including; the nominated treating doctor, the allied health professional, the rehabilitation consultant, the case manager and the return to work coordinator. In these cases, confusion is common, injuries take much longer to rehabilitate than necessary and companies are left stranded without their competent worker. Between 2000–01 and 2012–13, the median time lost from work for serious MSD claims increased by 35 per cent from 4.3 working weeks to 5.8 and the median amount of compensation for serious MSD claims increased by 59 per cent from $5 600 to $8 900 over the same period. (Safety Work Australia 2016).

The end result, is a frustrated worker and a company that has lost productivity and money through hefty insurance premiums.
