AUTHOR(S): Dr. Nayanjyoti Deka
ABSTRACT: Musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) are characterized by the presence of discomfort, disability and persistent pain in the joints, muscle, tendon and other soft parts caused or aggravated by repeated movements and prolonged awkward or forced body postures. The etiology of musculoskeletal disease is multifactorial, with the involvement of biomechanical, individual and psychological factors related to work. Due to prolonged awkward or forced posture at work and failure to adopt preventive measures, dental professionals are at risk of suffering musculoskeletal disorder. This study was a questionnaire based study done in post- graduate dental students from different dental colleges in Bangalore to assess the location of musculoskeletal pain, and to identify the variables related to the occurrence of musculoskeletal signs and symptoms.
