A case-control study was conducted to determine whether or not kinematic-based low back disorder risk measurement (Marras et al. 1993) of the job was significantly different for those workers suffering from recent low back injuries compared to asymptomatic controls. Two hundred low back injured workers returning to full duty work and 200 asymptomatic controls were evaluated while performing the same job. There were no statistically significant differences between the two groups on any trunk… CONTINUE READING
