Interindividual variation of physical load in a work task. (1/387)

OBJECTIVES: This study analyzed the variation in physical work load among subjects performing an identical work task. METHODS: Electromyographs from the trapezius and infraspinatus muscles and wrist movements were recorded bilaterally from 49 women during a highly repetitive industrial work task. An interview and a physical examination were used to define 12 potential explanatory factors, namely, age, anthropometric measures, muscle strength, work stress, and musculoskeletal disorders. RESULTS: For the electromyographs, the means of the 10th percentiles were 2.2% and 2.8% of the maximal voluntary electrical activity (%MVE) for the trapezius and infraspinatus muscles, respectively. However, the interindividual variations were very large [coefficients of variation (CV) 0.75 and 0.62, respectively]. Most of the variance could not be explained; only height, strength, and coactivation of the 2 muscles contributed significantly (R2(adj)0.20-0.52). The variation was still large, though smaller (CV < or =0.63), for values normalized to relative voluntary electrical activity (RVE). For the wrist movements, the median velocity was 29 degrees per second, and the interindividual variations were small (CV < or =0.24). Six factors contributed to the explained variance (R2(adj)0.12-0.55). CONCLUSIONS: The interindividual variation is small for wrist movements when the same work tasks are performed. In contrast, the electromyographic variation is large, even though less after RVE normalization, which reduces the influence of strength, than when MVE is used. Because of these variations, several electromyographs are needed to characterize the exposure of a specific work task in terms of muscular load, and individual electromyographs are preferable when the worker' s risk of myalgia is being studied.  (+info)

In vivo finger flexor tendon force while tapping on a keyswitch. (2/387)

Force may be a risk factor for musculoskeletal disorders of the upper extremity associated with typing and keying. However, the internal finger flexor tendon forces and their relationship to fingertip forces during rapid tapping on a keyswitch have not yet been measured in vivo. During the open carpal tunnel release surgery of five human subjects, a tendon-force transducer was inserted on the flexor digitorum superficialis of the long finger. During surgery, subjects tapped with the long finger on a computer keyswitch, instrumented with a keycap load cell. The average tendon maximum forces during a keystroke ranged from 8.3 to 16.6 N (mean = 12.9 N, SD = 3.3 N) for the subjects, four to seven times larger than the maximum forces observed at the fingertip. Tendon forces estimated from an isometric tendon-force model were only one to two times larger than tip force, significantly less than the observed tendon forces (p = 0.001). The force histories of the tendon during a keystroke were not proportional to fingertip force. First, the tendon-force histories did not contain the high-frequency fingertip force components observed as the tip impacts with the end of key travel. Instead, tendon tension during a keystroke continued to increase throughout the impact. Second, following the maximum keycap force, tendon tension during a keystroke decreased more slowly than fingertip force, remaining elevated approximately twice as long as the fingertip force. The prolonged elevation of tendon forces may be the result of residual eccentric muscle contraction or passive muscle forces, or both, which are additive to increasing extensor activity during the release phase of the keystroke.  (+info)

The wrist of the formula 1 driver. (3/387)

OBJECTIVES: During formula 1 driving, repetitive cumulative trauma may provoke nerve disorders such as nerve compression syndrome as well as osteoligament injuries. A study based on interrogatory and clinical examination of 22 drivers was carried out during the 1998 formula 1 World Championship in order to better define the type and frequency of these lesions. METHODS: The questions investigated nervous symptoms, such as paraesthesia and diminishment of sensitivity, and osteoligamentous symptoms, such as pain, specifying the localisation (ulnar side, dorsal aspect of the wrist, snuff box) and the effect of the wrist position on the intensity of the pain. Clinical examination was carried out bilaterally and symmetrically. RESULTS: Fourteen of the 22 drivers reported symptoms. One suffered cramp in his hands at the end of each race and one described a typical forearm effort compartment syndrome. Six drivers had effort "osteoligamentous" symptoms: three scapholunate pain; one medial hypercompression of the wrist; two sequellae of a distal radius fracture. Seven reported nerve disorders: two effort carpal tunnel syndromes; one typical carpal tunnel syndrome; one effort cubital tunnel syndrome; three paraesthesia in all fingers at the end of a race, without any objective signs. CONCLUSIONS: This appears to be the first report of upper extremity disorders in competition drivers. The use of a wrist pad to reduce the effects of vibration may help to prevent trauma to the wrist in formula 1 drivers.  (+info)

A vascular basis for repetitive strain injury. (4/387)

OBJECTIVE: The blanket term 'repetitive strain injury' (RSI) covers a wide variety of work-related clinical syndromes, most of which are localized lesions. However, some patients complain of diffuse forearm pain, a clinically distinct form of RSI, the aetiology of which is unknown. METHODS: Using Doppler ultrasound, we measured the vascular responses to muscular work in the radial artery in 13 patients with bilateral diffuse forearm pain, seven with unilateral diffuse pain and 19 controls with localized arm pain. RESULTS: We found that in diffuse forearm pain the radial artery is relatively constricted compared to the controls and fails to vasodilate with exercise, which suggests that diffuse forearm pain may be due to physiological claudication of the working forearm muscle. CONCLUSION: A possible explanation is inhibition of local endothelial nitric oxide function, and this may be an unusual secondary, but self-perpetuating, pain condition which can follow other more specific, but chronic, arm pain syndromes in susceptible individuals.  (+info)

Work related risk factors for musculoskeletal complaints in the spinning industry in Lithuania. (5/387)

OBJECTIVES: To describe the prevalence of self reported musculoskeletal complaints in the back, arms or neck, and legs among workers in the spinning industry, and to investigate the relations between these complaints and work related variables. METHODS: An interview based questionnaire survey was carried out in two spinning industry factories in Lithuania. RESULTS: The study group consisted of all workers in production (n = 363). Symptoms of the legs were the musculoskeletal symptom reported most often (61%). Many subjects had arms or neck (55%) or back problems (28%). 20% had experienced pain from all three sites. Almost 25% had had musculoskeletal pain every day and 16% had experienced constant pain during previous year. Packers had the highest risk of arms or neck problems whereas spinners had the highest risk of back or leg problems. Working in a strained posture (bending, work with arms raised up above shoulder level, and repetitive movements of the fingers) was associated with all three complaints. Only arms or neck complaints were associated with age. CONCLUSIONS: Musculoskeletal disorders are a common problem among workers producing gobelin or synthetic thread in Lithuania and working in a strained posture is a risk factor for developing musculoskeletal disorders in three body sites: legs, arms or neck, and back. To better understand the different aspects of physical load as risk factors, a more detailed study of the frequency of postural changes as well as an observation of individually adopted postures would be necessary. This applies to intervention studies in factories of the spinning industry to prevent complaints of the legs and shoulders.  (+info)

Do repetitive tasks give rise to musculoskeletal disorders? (6/387)

Repetitive tasks can undoubtedly cause discomfort and pain, but whether they cause or worsen the pathology causing the pain is most uncertain. Research in this area is difficult as the 'work-related upper limb disorders' do not occur exclusively in workers and because there is no simple, reliable and reproducible test for most 'work-related upper limb disorders'. Furthermore many studies are difficult to interpret as they detect disease by the presence of symptoms: one would expect manual workers to complain of more symptoms than sedentary workers and symptom aggravation does not tell one anything about the causation of the underlying pathology.  (+info)

Hypothenar hammer syndrome: proposed etiology. (7/387)

PURPOSE: Finger ischemia caused by embolic occlusion of digital arteries originating from the palmar ulnar artery in a person repetitively striking objects with the heel of the hand has been termed hypothenar hammer syndrome (HHS). Previous reports have attributed the arterial pathology to traumatic injury to normal vessels. A large experience leads us to hypothesize that HHS results from trauma to intrinsically abnormal arteries. METHODS: We reviewed the arteriography, histology, and clinical outcome of all patients treated for HHS in a university clinical research center study of hand ischemia, which prospectively enrolled more than 1300 subjects from 1971 to 1998. RESULTS: Twenty-one men had HHS. All had occupational (mechanic, carpenter, etc) or avocational (woodworker) exposure to repetitive palmar trauma. All patients underwent upper-extremity and hand arteriography, unilateral in eight patients (38%) and bilateral in 13 patients (62%). By means of arteriogram, multiple digital artery occlusions were shown in the symptomatic hand, with either segmental ulnar artery occlusion in the palm or characteristic "corkscrew" elongation, with alternating stenoses and ectasia. Similar changes in the contralateral asymptomatic (and less traumatized) hand were shown by means of 12 of 13 bilateral arteriograms (92%). Twenty-one operations, consisting of segmental ulnar artery excision in the palm and vein grafting, were performed on 19 patients. Histology was compatible with fibromuscular dysplasia with superimposed trauma. Patency of arterial repairs at 2 years was 84%. One patient (5%) required amputative debridement of necrotic finger tips. No other tissue loss occurred. There have been no recurrences of ischemia in patients with patent bypass grafts. CONCLUSION: To our knowledge, this is the largest reported group of HHS patients. The characteristic angiographic appearance, histologic findings, and striking incidence of bilateral abnormalities in patients with unilateral symptoms lead us to conclude that HHS occurs when persons with preexisting palmar ulnar artery fibrodysplasia experience repetitive palmar trauma. This revised theory for the etiology of HHS explains why HHS does not develop in most patients with repetitive palmar trauma.  (+info)

Evaluation of overuse elbow injuries. (8/387)

The evaluation of elbow pain can be challenging because of the complexity of the joint and its central location in the upper extremity. Diagnosing the injury correctly requires an understanding of the anatomy of the elbow, which includes three articulations, two ligament complexes, four muscle groups and three major nerves. The history should be directed at pinpointing the location of symptoms and the activities that cause the patient's pain. It is important to identify the specific musculotendinous structures that are at risk for overuse or have been injured through overuse. Mechanical symptoms are indicative of intra-articular pathology, whereas neurologic symptoms are characteristic of nerve entrapment syndromes. Physical examination of the elbow and related structures should confirm the diagnosis. Only a minority of patients require diagnostic studies. Basic treatment principles are described by the acronym PRICEMM: protection, rest, ice, compression, elevation, medication and modalities (physical therapy). Surgical consultation is warranted in selected patients.  (+info)

A review was conducted of all cumulative trauma disorder (CTD) injuries to the upper extremities for 1985 through 1989 among workers in mines. All injuries in coal mining and metal/nonmetal mining which were reported as irritated tendon injuries and occupational diseases of the upper extremities were selected for analysis. The narrative was analyzed to exclude acute injuries. Injuries were divided into carpal tunnel syndrome and CTD injuries excluding carpal tunnel syndrome. Age, years of work experience, and job title were examined in relation to development of CTD. The results of the analysis indicated that incidence rates in mining were lower than in the private industry sector. The number of reported CTD injuries increased seven fold in that time, and the percentage of all mining injuries which were of this type increased five fold. The increase may be a result of CTDs being increasingly reported. Of all CTD injuries, 80% occurred to workers at metal/nonmetal mines. Coal mines contributed ...

Carpal Tunnel Relief - Is Exercise The Solution?. By Jeff P. Anliker, LMT. Carpal tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is one of many musculoskeletal injuries listed under the broader terms of Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) or Cumulative Trauma Disorder (CTD). A number of other injuries listed under these terms, but that are not exclusively caused by a repetitive strain injury or cumulative trauma disorder include Guyons Syndrome, Tendonitis, Cubital Tunnel Syndrome, Medial and Lateral Epicondylitis and Trigger Finger. Carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive strain injuries are caused by excessive overuse of a muscle or group of muscles in a unidirectional movement pattern. Examples would include typing, wringing a washcloth and using a computer mouse. All of the movement patterns involve motion against resistance in one direction - flexion. This one-way motion does not actually have to involve repetitive movements as the term repetitive strain injury implies, as it is just as common for an individual ...

Repetitive strain injury, or RSI, is also known as work-related upper limb disorder. It can be a muscle, tendon, or nerve injury that occurs in an upper limb. RSI can result in pain, aches, swelling, cramps, tingling, numbness, or weakness in the affected areas of the body. It is usually caused by repetitive movements of a particular part of the body during work, as well as awkward posturing and stress.. There are several types of RSI, and these include carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis, tendonitis, tenosynovitis, frozen shoulder, epicondylitis, and others. Carpal tunnel syndrome results from the compression of the median nerve at the wrist, and it causes tingling, numbness, and muscle weakness in the hand and the fingers. Women are more susceptible to this condition than men, because they have smaller carpal tunnels. Bursitis refers to the inflammation of the bursa, which is a fluid-filled sac that is located at the joints, such as the shoulders or the knee. This injury is caused by too much ...
Tendinitis is a term that clearly indicates inflammation of tendons or tendon-muscle attachments, while tenosynovitis indicates inflammation of a tendon sheath. These terms are examples of clearly definable and diagnosable entities with a known histologic appearance. In the absence of edema, erythema, or crepitation, it is inappropriate to assign the provisional diagnosis of conditions such as tendinitis or tenosynovitis to patients with upper extremity pain. If patients are told they have one of these conditions, the oppressive power of these words may lead them to believe they are severely injured. A treating physician would do better to explain to their patients that they have pain or fatigue that may or may not be related to their occupation, but there is no definable diagnosis ...
Our modern lives create new challenges for yoga. Millions of people now use computer terminals at work, at school and at home. Not only do people sit for long hours staring at screens doing repetitive motions with their hands, but children from a young age now use computers to search the internet and play games.. As Yoga teachers, we encounter the results of these new life styles in class. Some students have carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), others have repetitive strain injuries (RSI), headaches, upper back pain and shoulder pain from sitting for hours with distorted posture. Many are mentally fatigued in a new way; their eyes are tired and their brains overstimulated. In order to help these students, we need to incorporate into our yoga repertoire knowledge about these problems and ways to alleviate them..

Repetitive motion injuries, also called repetitive stress injuries, are temporary or permanent injuries to muscles, nerves, ligaments, and tendons caused by doing the same motion over and over again. A common repetitive motion injury is carpal tunnel syndrome. This disorder occurs when the median nerve, which travels from the forearm to the hand through a tunnel in the wrist, is compressed by swollen, inflamed ligaments and tendons. It is often seen with people who use computer keyboards or work on assembly lines. The injury can be quite painful and can also cause numbness, clumsiness, and a loss of motion, flexibility, and strength in the area. It can worsen over time without treatment, and can result in a complete loss of function. ...

In the past, textbooks used to teach nothing but body mechanics for patient movement. They still are, but with a caveat. According to Fundamentals of Nursing Skills and Concepts, 10th Edition, published in 2013, The use of proper body mechanics (the efficient use of the musculoskeletal system) increases muscle effectiveness, reduces fatigue, and helps to avoid repetitive strain injuries (disorders that result from cumulative trauma to musculoskeletal structures). Basic principles of body mechanics are important regardless of a persons occupation or daily activities, but body mechanics alone will not necessarily reduce musculoskeletal injuries . . . It still advocates body mechanics as a way to protect a nurses back, but it gives a nod to the truth that the methods they are teaching are not as effective as health care workers have been led to believe ...
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Occupational Safety and Health Administration announced the draft of a national ergonomics standard Friday that could require businesses to redesign their workplaces. OSHAs six-part proposal could require businesses to redesign their workplaces in order to avoid repetitive motion injuries. It would affect workers susceptible to injuries as varied as carpal tunnel syndrome from working at a keyboard, muscular injuries from lifting patients in a nursing home, and repetitive motion hazards from scanning groceries at a supermarket. OSHA estimates that more than 647,000 Americans suffer from work-related musculoskeletal disorders, or WMSDs, because of ergonomically poor working environments, accounting for more than 34 percent of all work-related injuries and costing an estimated $15 billion to $20 billion annually. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce quickly condemned the proposal Friday on the grounds that there is little scientific evidence proving it is needed. The Chamber of ...
Musculoskeletal disorders of any cause are among the most prevalent medical problems, affecting 7% of the population and accounting for 14% of physician visits and 19% of hospital stays. When looking specifically at work-related musculoskeletal disorders, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that in 1995, 62% (308,000) of all illness cases were due to disorders associated with repeated trauma. This figure does not include back injuries. BLS also reports that the number of cases of repeated trauma has increased significantly, rising from 23,800 cases in 1972 to 332,000 cases in 1994-a fourteenfold increase. In 1995 the number of cases decreased by 7% to 308,000 reported cases, but this number still exceeds the number of cases in any year prior to 1994. When looking specifically at cases involving days away from work, for which more detailed information is available, BLS reports that in 1994, approximately 32% or 705,800 cases were the result of overexertion or repetitive motion.

Few community-based epidemiological investigations of upper limb disorders (ULDs) have classified cases by validated procedures involving a structured clinical examination.To compare risk factor profiles for different diagnostic categories of ULD using one such examination scheme.A questionnaire about upper limb pain and demographic, occupational and psychosocial risk factors was mailed to 10,264 adults from two English general practices, followed by standardized physical examination in those with arm or neck pain. Logistic regression was used to compare those with specific ULDs and non-specific arm pain with those who had no neck or arm symptoms.There was a 59% response rate. A total of 1,197 subjects with arm or neck pain underwent standardized physical examination and were classified as having one or more of 11 specific ULDs or non-specific regional pain. Among these, 250 subjects with specific ULDs and 176 with only non-specific arm pain were compared with 2,248 subjects who had no neck or arm
As the most commonly experienced form of arthritis, osteoarthritis is typically easy to diagnose. It can be caused by a sudden injury to the joint, or it can develop even if a previous injury has fully healed. For example, lets say you were a football player in college who experienced a harsh blow to the knee. You seek treatment, recover, and return to the game. Although the injury healed, damage occurred to the cartilage or surrounding muscles, decreasing support to the joint, or changing the motion of the joint slightly. Therefore, it is still possible for you to develop osteoarthritis from it later in life.. The same is true for overuse or repetitive motion careers. For example, if you are a carpenter who swings a hammer in repetitive motions as a crucial part of the job, you may develop osteoarthritis in the joints of your elbows or hands. If you are overweight, you may also be at a higher risk for developing osteoarthritis, as additional strain is being put on your knee and hip ...

A device and method for detecting the presence or absence of an object which has repetitive motion are disclosed comprising, a receiver for receiving a signal from the object, and circuitry for determining the presence or absence of the object to be detected, wherein the circuitry records the signal from the receiver as a pattern of data during at least part of the repetitive motion of the object, compares the data with a previously recorded data pattern and, produces an output signal based on the comparison. The signal may be received during discrete time intervals, and may be light which can be transmitted with varying intensity. The circuitry may determine the value of signal received at a receiver and produce a binary value. The signal received at the receiver can be reflected from the object to be detected.
When speaking of gradual-onset pain syndromes we use descriptive terms such as cumulative trauma, repetitive strain or stress, or musculoskeletal disorders. What do these terms actually mean? Do they have much meaning? Do they let us address issues in the workplace that can lead to injury? - Repetitive Injuries on the Computer - Ergonomics at BellaOnline
The goal of arm pain treatment is managing your pain and addressing the underlying cause of your condition. We will develop a tailored treatment plan that addresses your underlying condition with a goal of restoring quality of life, range of motion, and function.. At Coast Spine and Sports Medicine, we believe that treatment should begin with the most conservative options first with surgery reserved for the most serious cases that are not resolved with non-surgical solutions. Depending on the cause of your pain, non-surgical treatment may include physical therapy, instruction on specific exercises, acupuncture, and non-narcotic pain medication. In some cases, steroid injections may be beneficial to relieve pain and inflammation. These injections are usually used when a specific condition is causing inflammation. For example, injections can be part of upper arm muscle pain treatment due to a repetitive strain injury.. Surgery is only used to correct specific problems with the muscles, tendons, ...
I recently came across a friend with a NSD PowerBall Gyroscope (which Id seen plenty of advertisements for but hadnt got round to trying out), and my curiosity got the better of me. Amongst its claims is that it can be used as a Rehabilitation product bringing gentle non-impact relief to Carpal Tunnel syndrome (CTS), Repetitive strain injury (RSI), tendinitis, arthritis, and all wrist related ailments. Spinning for just five to seven minutes per day is enough to start your rehab!. Lofty claims indeed! I was keen to get my own Power Ball and get started!. The units are actually quite inexpensive (less than £10 for the basic model). The more expensive ones have electronic counters in them so you can count rotations and gyroscope speed RPM, which I decided was superfluous to my requirements. My NSD Power Ball arrived in a few days from Amazon and I ripped the package open with great enthusiasm and interest, as well as much hope!. The theory behind the Power Ball is that spinning the gyroscope ...
Lower back pains and hand problems are the main symptoms of a poorly designed office. A typist spends most of the day using a keyboard and therefore will experience hand problems in their lifetime. Loss of hand function is the number one reason that a person enters a nursing home (Materials Handling Engineering, Jun 1996). Experts say that people that spend more than four hours at a keyboard each day are most likely to suffer from some kind of repetitive strain injury, (Managing Office Technology, Jul 1996). A natural straight posture during keying with the wrist laying horizontal is the best way to avoid such RSIs. The mouse has to be kept as close to the keyboard as possible and can be rotated to each side of the keyboard to minimise dominant hand overuse.. The introduction of computers into the workplace has reduced the need to move constantly and often leads to a more sedentary employee. This in turn produces higher levels of discomfort and reduces worker productivity. Sun Microsystems has ...
Active work is good for you but if approached incorrectly, can sometimes contribute to health conditions like musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) such as lower back pain, joint injuries and repetitive strain injury (RSI) - which is a commonly used umbrella term for some types of pain felt in the fingers, wrists, forearms, neck and shoulders.
Strength training exercises using dumbbells can reduce pain and improve function in the trapezius muscle, the large muscle which extends from the back of the head, down the neck and into the upper back.. The exercises also improve the muscles ability to respond quickly and forcefully among women suffering trapezius myalgia, a tenderness and tightness in the upper trapezius muscle. The results are the latest findings from an ongoing Danish study aimed at reducing repetitive strain injury caused by office work.. The teams latest finding confirms that that five strength exercises - the one-arm row, shoulder abduction, shoulder elevation, reverse fly and upright row - can substantially reduce perceived pain. By finding out more about how the muscle function has been impaired and how it improves with exercise, the team has developed a way to assess the muscle in the rehabilitation setting.. In particular, the Danish team found that the women who had diminished abilities to activate the muscle ...
You may be able to receive workers comp benefits for injuries resulting from workplace accidents, as well as repetitive strain, cumulative trauma, occupational illness, and physical or psychological conditions caused by job stress. But it could be difficult to prove that some conditions are work-related.
The ErgoRest forearm support is great for people with RSI (repetitive strain injury) or CTS (carpal tunnel syndrome) as it allows your arms to float in a free moving, almost weightless motion.
Repetitive Strain Injury is a term used to describe a number of disorders which are caused by repetitive movements of parts of the body. These disorders include forearm tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, deQuervains tendonitis of the thumb and tennis elbow.
The first step in treating RSI is usually to identify and modify the task or activity that is causing the symptoms. If necessary, you may need to stop doing the activity altogether.. To relieve symptoms, your GP may advise taking a course of anti-inflammatory painkillers (such as aspirin or ibuprofen), or using a heat or cold pack, elastic support or splint.. You may also be referred to a physiotherapist for advice on posture and how to strengthen or relax your muscles. Some people find that other types of therapy help to relieve symptoms, including massage, yoga and osteopathy.. RSI can be divided into two types. Type I is when the pain is the result of a specific medical condition, such as carpal tunnel syndrome or tennis elbow. Type II is when no specific cause can be found and is often referred to as non-specific upper limb pain.. Read more about diagnosing repetitive strain injury (RSI) and treating repetitive strain injury (RSI). ...
Musculoskeletal disorders are injuries or illnesses that result from overexertion or repetitive motion. They include soft-tissue injuries such as sprains, strains, tears, hernias, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Work-related musculoskeletal disorders that result in days away from work most commonly involve the back alone. In 2016, musculoskeletal disorders involving the back accounted for 38.5 percent of all work-related musculoskeletal disorders (134,550 back cases out of 349,050 total cases).
This book focuses exclusively on ergonomics in the design and use of hand tools. Hand tools have been an integral supplement to the human hand since the beginning of civilization. Recently, they have been pinpointed as a prominent cause of workplace disease. Cumulative Trauma Disorders such as Tendonitus, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and Raynauds Syndrome are caused by the specialization of motion employed when using a screw driver, the shock to the hand and wrist when a hammer strikes a nail, or the vibration of a power saw. Ergonomics and Safety in Hand Tool Design explores the relationship between Biomechanics, Safety, and Ergonomics allowing the reader to recognize, evaluate, and control ergonomic risk factors and improve hand tool design.After a history of hand tool use and design, the book is broken down by the various disciplines as they apply to hand tools, taking a broad approach. The author gives special attention to safe design and use, illustrated with detailed diagrams. The text serves as a

Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are the major threats to public health, with a significant impact on workers, employers, and the general population. Musculoskeletal disorder related to work not only results in adverse health effects such as physical injury, disability, and a reduction in workers quality of life, but it also places immense burdens on the use of healthcare facilities and a substantial loss of productivity. The purpose of this research was to discover the prevalence and associated factors of work-related MSDs among hairdressers in Oromia Special Zone Surrounding Finfine, Ethiopia. A cross-sectional survey was carried out between March and April 2019. We included a total of 699 hairdressers with a systematic random sampling technique. Work-related MSDs was evaluated with the standardized Nordic Musculoskeletal survey, and the survey was administered by the interviewer. We employed SPSS version 20 software to perform a bivariate and multivariate analysis. A p-value of | 0.05
Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) is currently not only a health problem in enterprises across six European regions which are Catalonia (ES), Lombardy (IT), South-West Bohemia (CZ) Upper Austria (AU), Estonia (EE), Provincie Noord-Brabantv(NL), but also impacts negatively on productivity and on the competitiveness of enterprises. This project, granted by Innovation 4 Welfare (I4W), will provide a high value to enterprises in the participating regions. However, although EU-legislation has established new and highly innovative technical standards the area of physical ergonomics, specifically aimed at protecting the working population from biomechanical and organizational risks for WMSDs, it is still not easy for users to find a suitable tool or strategy for identifying hazards and assessing risks for purposes of WMSDs prevention effectively. Additionally, there are no criteria or guidelines for teaching users how to select the best method for a specific case. Hence, this project ...

So the researchers main goal has been finding a means to detect the problem before the damage starts. That way, conservative intervention - ibuprofen, rest breaks at work, exercise - can be evaluated as to their effectiveness in preventing the development of chronic work-related conditions and, consequently, the need for more serious measures such as surgery ...
Sport injuries are acute traumas that occur as a result of accidents, poor stretching and training practices, and improper use of sports equipment. Examples of these injuries include sprains and strains, swollen muscles, fractures and dislocations of bones, injuries of the Achilles tendon, and pain and inflammation along the shin bone. Overuse injuries usually build-up and worsen over time and are less noticeable. They occur when repetitive tasks are performed by a specific body part. Some overuse injuries are stress fractures, rotator cuff damage, tendinitis, tennis elbow, swimmers shoulder, jumpers knee, shin splints, and spondylolysis (low back pain).. Minor damage to the bones, ligaments, muscles, cartilage, and tendons can cause a variety of symptoms, some of which are pain, swelling, tenderness, heat, redness, bruising, and loss of function of the injured body part. In order to ensure that symptoms of the injury dont worsen in the beginning, the RICE treatment (Rest, Ice, Compression, ...
There is evidence that the magnitude of the placebo effect produced by a device is greater than that produced by a pill. If this is the case, it has significant ramifications for all trials involving devices and for our understanding of the role of the placebo effect in randomized controlled trials (RCT). This two phase study 1)investigates the role of the placebo effect in RCTs and 2)conducts two trials of treatments for persistent upper extremity pain secondary to repetitive strain injury (RSI), including carpel tunnel syndrome. In Phase I. 240 patients with RSI are randomly assigned to receive a placebo device (a recently validated sham acupuncture device) or a placebo pill (dummy amitriptyline). Our primary hypothesis is that patients will respond better to the sham device than the placebo pill. A finding that sham acupuncture produces a greater placebo response than a placebo pill has important implications for the interpretation of results in trials that compare devices to sham devices, ...

A. All the time, and a lot of them get relief from it. The one I send them to most often happens to be a doctor who got into acupuncture later. Theres a large Asian population in the Berkeley area, so there are many acupuncturists to choose from. But the results are variable. Some people get really good results from acupuncture or acupressure, and others find its a waste of time. So its something to have in your therapeutic armamentarium. Particularly if nothing else is working, give it a try!. Q. What about the psychosocial factors involved in low back pain?. A. Thats a tough one, because as soon as doctors say psychosocial factors, patients wonder, do you think this is all in my head, doc? But it is nonetheless true that pain and psychosocial factors are hard to uncouple. For example, I see a lot of patients who have repetitive strain injuries, and any time you have a chronic injury, theres the possibility that it will be linked with either depression or stress. And what caused what ...

The Canadian labour movement first recognized April 28 as a day of mourning in 1984, both to honour those killed and injured on the job and to advocate for improved health and safety for Canadian workers. Unfortunately for Canadians, our workplaces continue to be among the most unsafe compared with those of other countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).. Of the 29 OECD member countries, Canada has the fifth highest rate of workplace fatalities. In 2007, Canada recorded 1,055 workplace deaths, according to the Association of Workers Compensation Boards of Canada - a shockingly high number that unfortunately understates the actual total. Many occupational diseases are not recognized by workers compensation boards and go unreported as a result.. CEIU members face a range of health risks, running from repetitive strain injuries to workload stress. As the demand for the services provided by many CEIU members increases as a result of the recession, workplace ...

Chiropractic treatment has been shown to alleviate pain in the back and neck of the horse. Some nerve damage, such as pressure on the sciatic nerve, has responded well to chiropractic adjustments. The horses spine is a system of bones known as vertebrae that fit together and articulate with each other to allow movement. The spine allows a range of movement such as lowering and raising the head, arching or dipping the back, and bending from side to side. The horses spine, unlike the humans, is a fairly rigid structure, with the majority of movement in the neck and the lumbar area, behind the saddle area, and just in front of where the spine connects to the pelvis.. Wherever two or more bones meet, a joint is formed, and all joints allow a certain range of movement. Sometimes a joint can be taken to the extreme of its range of movement through trauma such as a fall, a bad stumble, or through repetitive strain injury such as a badly fitting saddle, lameness, or poor shoeing. When this happens, ...
Occupational Diseases listed in WCA Schedule 1 (previously B) are matched with the particular industries in which they commonly occur. If the worker has that disease and works in the listed industry at the time of disablement, the Occupational Disease is presumed to have been caused by that work unless the contrary is proven (s 137; previously 6(3)). A presumption of work causation only arises for diseases mentioned in Schedule 1 when the worker is working in the listed industry immediately before the date of disablement. Otherwise, no presumption applies. Also, the contrary may be proven in an individual case. For example, where a worker was employed as a coal miner at or before the date of disablement, silicosis is compensable unless it is proven to have been caused by non-work factors such as smoking. Occupational Diseases in Schedule 1 include certain kinds of cancers, respiratory diseases including asbestosis, and repetitive strain injuries. If a worker has a Schedule 1 disease but does not ...
Musculoskeletal disorders of any cause are among the most prevalent medical problems, affecting 7% of the population and accounting for 14% of physician visits and 19% of hospital stays. When looking specifically at work-related musculoskeletal disorders, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that in 1995, 62% (308,000) of all illness cases were due to disorders associated with repeated trauma. This figure does not include back injuries. BLS also reports that the number of cases of repeated trauma has increased significantly, rising from 23,800 cases in 1972 to 332,000 cases in 1994-a fourteenfold increase. In 1995 the number of cases decreased by 7% to 308,000 reported cases, but this number still exceeds the number of cases in any year prior to 1994. When looking specifically at cases involving days away from work, for which more detailed information is available, BLS reports that in 1994, approximately 32% or 705,800 cases were the result of overexertion or repetitive motion.

Overuse injuries occur from stressing your joints, muscles, or other tissues without allowing them to recover. For example, throwing a baseball at high speeds over and over can stress your shoulder joint and cause an injury to part of that joint (the rotator cuff). Stress fractures, in which a bone breaks from the pressure placed on it through activity, are also common for athletes. Overuse injuries can be caused by:. ...
Work-related musculoskeletal disorders are a significant occupational problem among employees and workers. This study attempted to explore the effect of stressors in the hospital environment on nurses development of musculoskeletal disorders.We conducted a cross-sectional survey in a random sample of 123 hospital nurses from Semnan University of Medical Sciences. Data were collected during working days over 3 months starting from January 2014. Participants completed a standardized questionnaire for stresses and musculoskeletal disorders at work. Musculoskeletal disorders were used as the dependent variables, while demographic, physical, and psychosocial work factors were used as independent variables.Our study revealed prevalence of low back ache, neck ache, shoulder ache, arm-elbow ache, and hand-wrist pain rated 48.3%, 39.5%, 33.1%, 31.3%, and 23.4%, respectively. The findings showed significant statistical association between musculoskeletal complaints in neck and upper extremity with exposed stress

The most common head injury in sports is concussion. Athletes who sustain a prolonged loss of consciousness should be transported immediately to a hospital for further evaluation. Assessment of less severe injuries should include a thorough neurologic examination. The duration of symptoms and the presence or absence of post-traumatic amnesia and loss of consciousness should be noted. To avoid premature return to play, a good understanding of the possible hazards is important. Potential hazards of premature return to play include the possibility of death from second-impact syndrome, permanent neurologic impairment from cumulative trauma, and the postconcussion syndrome.
Therapeutic interventions focused on the traditional specific adaptations to imposed demand (SAID) principle57 should be adhered to when developing therapeutic intervention plans with proper flexibility in programmatic sequence based on the patients physical (eg, muscle soreness or inflammation) and mental responses (eg, fatigue or boredom). A multifactorial approach to PT allows individuals to focus on the wide array of potentially contributing factors that often lead to overuse injuries; dosage, technique, fatigue, activation patterns, asymmetries, performance outcomes, anatomical alignments, neurological demands, etc.58-60. Modalities and bracing are often used as an adjunct to rest and PT, but limited studies have examined their use in adolescents. Their risks and benefits have been inferred from studies in the adult population and are based on use in clinical practice. Ice and heat are commonly used following injury. Oral acetaminophen may be helpful for short-term pain relief. Several ...

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome afflicts many people who perform repetitive motions in their daily routines. Pain develops in the region of the wrist that meets the hand, causing significant pain and discomfort throughout the day.. There are a number of reasons why individuals develop pain in this area.. For instance, those who have jobs that require continuous motion in a relatively limited range of motion are prime candidates for wrist pain. Factory assembly jobs or spending long hours typing at a desk are common causes of this type of injury.. Remedies for occupational pain include standing or sitting up straight while keeping the abdominal muscles taut. Keyboards should therefore be placed in a geometry that does not require you to bend your wrists upward or hunch over to reach the keys. When you keep the back straight, all your bones and muscles fall into their natural alignment. This allows plenty of room for the nerves to pass through the body unimpeded.. A surprising number of people also sleep ...
Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) consist of minor physical disabilities.. MSDs are injuries or pain in the bodys joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves, tendons, and structures that support limbs, neck and back. The pain and discomfort may interfere with everyday activities. MSDs can arise from a sudden exertion or they can arise from making the same motions repeatedly repetitive strain, or from repeated exposure to force, vibration, or awkward posture.. Injuries and pain in the musculoskeletal system caused by acute traumatic events like a car accident or fall are not considered musculoskeletal disorders.. MSDs are extremely common, and your risk increases with age and the severity of the MSD can vary ...
