STUDY DESIGN Prospective field study of work exposure and changes in back function. OBJECTIVE Quantify dynamic physical exposures in the workplace and their association with decreases in kinematic back function (indicative of low back pain [LBP]). SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Previous epidemiologic studies of work have measured gross categories of exposure and found moderate relationships with LBP. More precise quantitative measures of exposure and spine function were hypothesized to increase… CONTINUE READING
