Summary of "Assessment of upper limb musculoskeletal pain and posture in workers of packaging units of pharmaceutical industries."

Work-related musculoskeletal disorders are defined as the disabling or painful injury to the muscles, nerves or tendons that are caused by work or aggravated by it. Some studies confirm the association between working in packaging units in various industries and the pain in the upper limb, but also there are controversies about the possible risk factors among different working populations.
