For many workers, being able to work from home went from a dream to reality overnight during the pandemic. You may have cobbled together a makeshift workstation, or you might have spruced up your existing home office. Either way, you're likely making ergonomic mistakes without even realizing it, which can lead to musculoskeletal disorders.
Watch this demonstration to learn how you can set up everything from your chair to your monitor to work safely at your desk, wherever you're working.
What are musculoskeletal disorders, anyway?
Musculoskeletal disorders, also known as MSDs, involve the muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bursas, nerves, and vascular and structural soft tissue supporting the spine, including the intervertebral discs. MSDs are some of the most common (and sometimes most expensive) injuries across all industries.
