Comparison of Chronic Occupational Upper Extremity Versus Lumbar Disorders for Differential Disability-Related Outcomes and Predictor Variables
Objective: To systematically evaluate if an interdisciplinary functional restoration program (FRP), shown to be a viable treatment option for patients with chronic disabling occupational lumbar disorders, is as effective in treating chronic disabling occupational upper extremity disorders. Methods: Participants were 2484 consecutive patients with either arm or lumbar disorders admitted to an FRP. Analyses compared demographic, psychosocial, and work-related factors, and 1-year post-rehabilitation socioeconomic outcomes. Results: Socioeconomic outcomes showed that work-return and work-retention...
Recovery Expectations Predict Recovery in Workers With Back Pain but Not Other Musculoskeletal Conditions

Methods: All workers' compensation claimants receiving time-loss benefits for a musculoskeletal condition and undergoing return-to-work assessment were enrolled. Claimants completed a work-related recovery expectations questionnaire...
Job characteristics and work organization factors associated with patient-handling injury among nursing personnel

Karasek's Job Content Questionnaire measured work organization factors, including job strain (high psychological demand, low decision latitude). We created a novel measure (job strain_{PHYSICAL}) reflecting high physical demand and low...
