Description

Written by a distinguished group of contributors, this book provides comprehensive information on both CTDs of the upper extremity and low back pain. Using a broad-based approach that is equally useful for physicians, surgeons, physical therapists, occupational safety personnel, engineers, and lawyers, Cumulative Trauma Disorders provides practical guidelines for CTD identification and control, including:
  • Understanding current legal issues--including the OSHA Ergonomics Rule and the ADA--and their implications for workers and healthcare providers.
  • Monitoring and managing CTD risk factors in the workplace.
  • Implementing ergonomic solutions for upper extremity CTDs and low back pain.
  • Performing impairment and disability evaluations.
