Título Specific and non-specific upper extremity musculoskeletal disorder syndromes in automobile manufacturing workers
Información bibliográfica Feb. 2009, Vol.52, No.2, p.124-132. Illus. 37 ref.
Resumen A longitudinal cohort of 1214 automobile industry workers was examined for the prevalence and persistence of upper extremity musculoskeletal disorders (UEMSDs) and prognoses based on symptom characteristics and other factors. Eight specific disorders were identified through case definitions based on upper extremity physical examinations and symptom surveys administered on three occasions over six years. At baseline, 41% of the cohort reported upper extremity symptoms, of which 18% were non-specific disorders (NSDs). In each survey, tendon-related conditions accounted for over half of the specific morbidity. Specific UEMSDs were characterized by greater pain severity and functional impairment, and more lost work days than NSDs. Other findings are discussed.
