Examining the Prevalence of Musculoskeletal Disorders among Lawyers: An Observational Study

Piyusha Varma | Dr. Sarvesh Shirsat [2]

Abstract: This observational study investigates the prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders MSDs among lawyers, analyzing the impact of various work environments and practices on their physical well-being. With a sample size of 80 lawyers across different experience levels, the research employs a self-made questionnaire to identify the occurrence of MSDs in relation to factors such as prolonged sitting, standing, and physical activities like stair climbing. The findings reveal significant instances of MSDs, particularly among lawyers in their initial years of practice, attributed to factors including workload pressure, physical workload, and postural challenges. The study emphasizes the necessity of ergonomic interventions and lifestyle modifications to mitigate the risks associated with the professions demands. Through its analysis, it aims to contribute to the development of strategies for improving lawyers health and productivity.
