||A female accompanying pianist employed in a music school developed a tingling sensation in her right hand, followed by a loss of strength and sensitivity in the hand and arm. She was diagnosed with a disc hernia for which she was operated. She recovered and resumed her occupation. She later developed the same symptoms and a disc hernia was again diagnosed. Not willing to undergo a second operation, she applied for occupational disease compensation, which was rejected. She appealed against the decision and contacted an occupational physician who carried out a detailed job study, as a result of which the occupational nature of her disorder was recognized. Details of the ergonomic evaluation are outlined.
