  1. Occupational risk factors associated with soft tissue disorders of the shoulder : a review of recent investigations in the literature.

    Article - En anglais

    Cumulative trauma illness currently accounts for over half of all occupational illness in the United States.

    From 1987 to 1989 there was a 100% increase in the reported number of cases of cumulative trauma illness (Bureau of Labor Statistics 1990).

    Shoulder region pain ranks second only to low back and neck pain in clinical frequency, and the occurrence of occupational shoulder illness is on the rise.

    This paper summarizes findings of a subset of recent epidemiologic, laboratory, and field studies conducted in order to identify occupational risk factors for cumulative trauma disorders (CTDs) of the shoulder region.
