Musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) are the largest contributor to disability worldwide. In addition to burdening individuals, there are large socioeconomic costs involved. MSD accounts for a considerable use of health services, and for the greatest proportion of lost productivity in the workplace. In Norway, MSD are the most common cause of sickness absence and represent the largest health challenge for workers in terms of prevalence and cost measured in worse health and disability in addition to sickness absence.
