Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are conditions or injuries that affect the muscles, joints, bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and associated nerves- the components of our system for movement.
According to the World Health Organization, MSDs are the highest contributor to disability worldwide, with low back pain being the single leading cause.
Pain, loss of mobility and impaired daily function are the main features of MSDs. They reduce one’s ability to work and learn, limit one’s capacity to participate and engage in society and in social activities, and affect one’s quality of life.
Hello! I am Li-Yeng. I am a chartered physiotherapist focused on facilitating lifelong musculoskeletal fitness.
To me, optimal musculoskeletal health comes from giving attention to the factors that positively support one’s health and well-being, and at the same time managing one’s risk factors of disease.
My purpose is to enable the healthy to stay active and well, to identify and equip those who need help at an early stage, and to empower those with on-going conditions to self-manage confidently and effectively.
“The purpose of knowledge is action, not knowledge.”
