Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are medical condition mostly caused by work related occupations and working environment, affecting patients’ muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments and nerves and developing over time. A community sample of 73 females and 32 males aged 85 and over underwent a standardised examination at home. Musculoskeletal pain was reported by 57% of those interviewed. A major restriction of joint movement range was frequent in the shoulder but uncommon in other joints(1).

4. Polymalagia Arthritis
5. Cervical myleopathy and spinal canal stenosis
7. Low back pain
Osteoarthritis (OA), a form of arthritis, is defined as a condition of as a result of aging causes of wear and tear on a joint, affecting over 25 million people in the United States in alone. University of Porto Medical School indicated that one must understand the differences in prevalence and incidence estimates of osteoarthritis (OA), according to case definition, in knee, hip and hand joints(3).
The characteristics of osteoarthritis are aching pain(5), stiffness(6), or difficulty of moving the joint or joints(7). The pain usually gets worse in change of weather, at night and in the advanced diseases, the pain can occur even at rest(8). Today management of osteoarthritis (OA) focuses on pain relief and improved physical function through pharmacological, non pharmacological, and surgical treatments(4).
B. In herbal and traditional Chinese medicine perspective
B.3. The Preventive Minerals and Vitamins
2. Top vitamins for osteoarthritis
According to Anatomisches Institut der CAU zu Kiel, Olshausenstr, diet supplemented with the vitamins E, C, A, B6, B2, play an important role in prevention or therapy of mechanically induced OA, due to the effects of their antioxidant activity(335).
3.1. Vitamin A
Intake of free radical scavengers and antioxidants such as carotenoids have been known for influence the development and progression of osteoarthritis (OA)(339), according to the Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine, high serum values of beta-/gamma-tocopherols (Vitamin A) were found to be significantly associated with a reduced risk of OR for radiographic kneeosteoarthritis(338). In Race differentiation, according to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, radiographic kneeosteoarthritis and tocopherol isoforms are complex and may vary by ethnicity and sex(340).
3.2. Vitamin C
In a case-control study enrolled 180 knee osteoarthritis (KOA), Low intake of dietary vitamin D and vitamin C has shown to induced a high risk factor of KOA(344)Vitamin C as an antioxidant has shown to reduce oxidative stress causes of dysfunction in chondrocytes and articular cartilage degradation in patient with OA(342) induced by H2O2 by regulating multiple regulatory pathways(341). Intake of vitamin C supplement has reduced risk of OA incidence but not in decreased progression of knee in patient with OA(343).
3.3. Vitamin E
In comparison of the effectiveness of vitamin E and B vitamin in patient with knee OA, Dr. Dehghan M said "decrease in total pain severity was reported higher in B vitamin group than E vitamin"(336).
In the study of the pro-oxidant and antioxidant status in patient with OA, high levels of serum of vitamin E is associated to reduced risk of oxidative stress causes of osteoarthritis through regulation in response to increased oxidative stress(345). The study of total otal cartilage degeneration in rat models, also insisted that Vitamin E expressed not only in hondroprotective activity but also exhibited a beneficial effects of HA on articular cartilage(346).
Unfortunately, a double blind, placebo controlled trial, 136 patients with knee OA from American College of Rheumatology clinical and radiographic criteria did not support the beneficial effect of Vitamin E in the management of knee OA, in improved cartilage volume loss or symptoms(347).
Vitamin D is associated to the development and progression of osteoarthritis, as l dietary vitamin D intake increases the risk of progression of knee ROA, effecting the bone density(348). Vitamin D deficiency also has found to induced risk of progression(349) and worsening of knee osteoarthritis in patient(350). According to the study of a total of 880 randomly selected subjects (mean age 61 years [range 51-79 years], 50% women) at baseline, conducted by the University of Tasmania, sunlight exposure and serum 25(OH)D levels are found to associate with decreased knee cartilage loss(351).
In deed, Other vitamin such as vitamin D is found to modify disease progression in knee OA, through
reduce knee pain, loss of knee cartilage volume, risk knee structural abnormalities and strengthen lower limb muscle strength(337).
3.5. B vitamin
According to the Shahrekord University of Medical Science, in the studyof mean score of WOMAC questionnaire at VASs of knee pain, total pain severity, knee joint stiffness, showed that the B vitamin decrease stiffness in knee joint(352). In deed, high consumption of the mixture of B vitamins and diclofenac have been found effectively in reduced pain and inflammation for patient with osteoarthritis and used in a total knee arthroplasty(353).
