Aims: The purpose of the study was to establish the relationship between psychological factors and impaired functioning of the musculoskeletal system.
Instrument & Methods: To achieve the purpose of the study, numerous methods were used, including theoretical (analysis, synthesis, generalisation) and practical (Depression, Anxiety, and Stress Scales; Nordic Musculoskeletal Questionnaire; Copenhagen Psychosocial Questionnaire. Statistical significance between the studied indicators was established using Cronbach's Alpha coefficient.
Findings: The results of the study established that employees who were in the range of average indicators according to the stress detection method had a higher risk of musculoskeletal disorders. These rates were high even considering some variables, such as smoking, age, and body mass index scores.
Conclusion: Intense stress leads to disorders in the musculoskeletal system. In particular, such emotions as anger, frustration, annoyance, confusion, tension, hatred, anxiety, and nervousness cause stress. Not only the experience and frequency of such feelings but also the repetition of actions and movements cause injuries or disorders of the musculoskeletal system.
