Les risques du métier!

Voilà ce qui nous attend...
Neck and upper limb musculoskeletal disorders are a significant problem among workers across all European Union Member States according to the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (Buckle and Devereux, 1999). An unacceptable irony given that physiotherapy is used to treat musculoskeletal injuries is that Chartered Society of Physiotherapy members are at particular risk themselves from this type of injury, sustained during the course of their work. Indeed, musculoskeletal injuries among UK physiotherapists threaten the health and safety of Chartered Society of Physiotherapy members, have implications for clinical education and practice and could severely hinder retention in both the profession and the National Health Service.
International research suggests that physiotherapists are susceptible to work-related musculoskeletal disorders because of the nature of their work, which can be repetitive and labour-intensive. In particular:

Younger physiotherapists, ie below the age of 30, are more at risk, particularly during the first four or five years of practice, a particular concern in a National Health Service context where there are retention problems among physiotherapists.

▪ Lifetime prevalence of work-related injury may be as high as 90%.

▪ As many as one in six physiotherapists may move specialty or leave the profession as a result of a musculoskeletal injury.

▪ The highest prevalence of injury is to the low back, followed by wrists and hands.

▪ Lifting or transferring patients is the task most likely to lead to injury.

▪ Most physiotherapists sustaining work-related musculoskeletal disorders self-treat or seek treatment from a colleague rather than from a doctor or from occupational health departments.

Failure to take rest breaks, inadequate staffing levels and a heavy caseload (work organisation factors) contribute to the risk of injury.
