Tackling musculoskeletal health early on: lifelong effects in a generation of workers

Many children and young people live with musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), which may be exacerbated once they join the work force. Being overweight and inactive can increase the risk of MSDs in young people and children, but they are preventable. Minimising these dangers is a multifaceted undertaking, which should involve the public health, education and occupational health.
