Topical Collection in Healthcare: Featured Review Papers on Chronic Diseases
Musculoskeletal disorders are among the most common causes of disability. To date, the effectiveness of some preventive measures against musculoskeletal disorders remains uncertain. Furthermore, observational studies have yielded inconsistent results on the effects of some personal and occupational factors on musculoskeletal disorders. This Special Issue aims to publish original studies and reviews of randomized and non-randomized controlled trials examining preventive measures for musculoskeletal disorders and original studies or reviews of observational studies identifying personal or occupational risk and protective factors for musculoskeletal disorders. We would consider narrative, systematic, and umbrella reviews examining specific review questions. Studies on sickness absence or disability retirement due to musculoskeletal disorders are also welcome.
