Diseases of the musculoskeletal system include all diseases that affect the muscles, bones and joints of humans. In addition to the widespread disease of back pain, this category also includes herniated discs, carpal tunnel syndrome as well as gout, osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.
Around 80 percent of the population suffers from musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) of this type at least once in their lifetime. In total, medicine counts more than 150 disease patterns and syndromes. The list ranges from acute illnesses with a sudden onset to those with a short duration and lifelong impairments. MSDs are usually caused by several different factors, e.g. physical, psychological and work-related causes. However, the main risk factor is and remains lack of exercise.
