  1. Development of trapezius myalgia among female workers performing light manual work.

    Article - En anglais

    The aim of this prospective study was to detect a possible development of trapezius myalgia likely to be work-related in initially healthy female packers.

    Symptoms were recorded on a five-step intensity scale in a daily diary and in an interview at ten-week intervals.

    All of the subjects were interviewed concerning assumed risk factors during work and leisure time, and a clinical examination was performed.

    Within their first year of employment, 17 of 30 subjects developed work-related trapezius myalgia of sufficient intensity to be classified as patients.

    The median time before a clinically confirmed patient status was 23 (range 6-51) weeks.

    The symptoms showed a fluctuating pattern, decreasing on the weekends and during some holidays.
