The article focuses on sleep disorders as a risk factor for musculoskeletal pain. It is reported that sleep disorders at baseline predict development of chronic musculoskeletal pain in initially healthy working female and male one year later. Job strain was also predictive of musculoskeletal pain in female. The hypothalamo-pituitary adrenal axis is activated by sleep disturbance which results in elevated cortisol levels.
