Shoulder tendinitis and its relation to heavy manual work and exposure to vibration.
Three categories of construction industry workers (54 bricklayers, 55 rockblasters, and 98 foremen) were compared in a cross-sectional study.
In a structured interview they reported exposure to loads lifted, vibration, and years of manual work.
They were also subjected to a clinical investigation including medical history and a detailed shoulder examination.
Among the rockblasters 33% had signs of tendinitis in the left and 40% in the right shoulder.
Among the bricklayers and foremen 8-17% had signs of shoulder tendinitis.
In a multiple logistic regression being a rockblaster compared with being a foreman showed an odds ratio (OR) of 3.33 for left-sided and 1.71 for right-sided shoulder tendinitis.
