The burden of disabling musculoskeletal pain and injuries (musculoskeletal disorders, MSDs) arising from work-related causes in many workplaces remains substantial. There is little consensus on the most appropriate interventions for MSDs. Our objective was to update a systematic review of workplace-based interventions for preventing and managing upper extremity MSD (UEMSD).

INTRODUCTION. Upper‐limb musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) include both peripheral nerve entrapments, mainly carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) and ulnar tunnel syndrome, and peripheral enthesopathies, mainly shoulder tendinitis, lateral epicondylitis, and hand‐wrist tendinitis ().Numerous nonspecific musculoskeletal pain disorders can also be included under this umbrella by: Furthermore, an elevated prevalence of work-related musculoskeletal disorders of the upper extremities is observed among office employees working in seated postures (Buckle and Devereux,   Yet, the relationship between MSDs and work-related factors remains the subject of considerable debate.

Musculoskeletal Disorders and Workplace Factors: A Critical Review of Epidemiologic Evidence for Work Related Musculoskeletal Disorders of the Neck, Upper Extremity, and Low Back will provide answers to many of the questions that have arisen. Written by a professional ergonomist with almost 40 years of experience in workplace ergonomics, this book combines a critical summary and assessment of the epidemiological literature with an exploration of the scientific and medical evidence for possible causal mechanisms to develop well-informed conclusions on causation of a number of common musculoskeletal disorders of the upper limb and intervertebral disc injury.

Occupational risk factors nearly universally mentioned as potentially causative for upper extremity musculoskeletal disorders include forceful hand and arm exertions, repetitive hand and arm use, movements that require extremes of hand and arm posture, prolonged static postures, and vibration.2, 15, 31, 33 The evidence associating each risk factor with each specific disorder is Cited by: 1.

Introduction. Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) are among the leading causes of occupational diseases among healthcare professionals worldwide [1,2].WMSDs inevitably lead to increased rates of job turnover [] and long sick leave [], representing a social and economic burden due to long-term disability and decreased work efficiency [].

In a first section the data relative to work related upper limb musculoskeletal disorders are collected in three groups referring respectively to the muscle, to the tendon and to the peripheral nerve. The main work‐related factors of upper‐extremity musculoskeletal disorders are rapid work pace and repetitive motion patterns, insufficient recovery time, heavy lifting and forceful manual exertion, sustained awkward posture of the wrists, elbows, or shoulders, mechanical pressure concentration, use of vibrating hand tools (1 - 4), and psychosocial factors, such as job stress (5, 6).

Work-related upper limb disorders are the dominating musculoskeletal diseases in the general population [], covering 24% of the working population within the European Union [].In Bulgaria they represent % of all registered cases with occupational diseases [].The apprehensions and attitudes about work-related and occupational diseases have been discussed for.

To assess the prevalence of upper extremity work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) among surgical device mechanics compared to a control. Upper Limb Musculoskeletal Disorder Consortium. InNIOSH started a collaborative research program to prevent work-related upper limb musculoskeletal disorders (MSD’s, conditions involving the nerves, tendons, muscles, and supporting structures of the upper limb).

The program has research partners at six universities and one state agency. Work-related musculoskeletal disorders of the upper limbs: a set of diverse conditions in search of a definition. The conditions classified as WRMSDs-UL are inflammatory and degenerative disorders responsible for pain and functional impairment.

They involve the tendons, muscles, joints, nerves and blood vessels (Raynaudˈs phenomenon). A critical review of epidemiologic evidence for work-related musculoskeletal disorders of the neck, upper extremity, and low back.

Upper extremity musculoskeletal disorders in hospital workers Seventy-six women who worked in a hospital were surveyed for symptoms and signs of upper limb musculoskeletal disorders. The investigation was originally intended to study the effects of repetitive manual work that was performed by a group of garment assembly workers.

Background. Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) of the upper and lower extremities are common. In the United States, 36 % and 16 % of injuries presenting to emergency departments are sprains and/or strains of the lower and upper extremities, respectively [1, 2].In Canada, more than 75 % of individuals injured in a motor vehicle collision report upper extremity pain and % report pain.

Work-Related Musculoskeletal Disorders (WRMSD) Grand Challenge. The main work-related factors of UEMSDs are rapid work pace and repetitive motion patterns, insufficient recovery time, heavy lifting and forceful manual exertion, sustained awkward posture of the wrists, elbows or shoulders, mechanical pressure concentration, use of vibrating hand tools (1–4), and psychosocial factors, such as job stress (5–6).Work-related Musculoskeletal Disorders of the Neck, Back, and Upper Extremity in Washington State, Technical Report Number a Barbara Silverstein, PhD, MPH Eira Viikari-Juntura, MD, DMedSci John Kalat, BA Safety and Health Assessment and Research for Prevention (SHARP) Washington State Department of Labor and Industries SHARP.Upper extremity musculoskeletal (UEMS) disorders are an important problem in industrial countries [] There is strong evidence for an association between biomechanical exposures and UEMS disorders.[2–4] However, little is known about the occupational factors associated with recovery of these disorders.[5–7]To determine if occupational factors were associated with the outcome in .
