Summary

Whether you call them work-related upper limb disorders (WRULDs), cumulative trauma disorders (CTDS), or occupational overuse syndromes (OOSs), they are a cause of injury to workers worldwide. These names indicate that their causes are related to work, butthe evidence can be unclear. There is a debate whether they are the result of heredity or the environment. This is important, when it's necessary to form a connection to obtain treatment or compensation. This book addresses the dilemma. It combines a critical assessment from epidemiological literature, with an exploration of scientific and medical evidence for possible causal mechanisms, to develop authoritative statements on causation.
