Occupational exposure and upper extremity pain


Swedish government has tasked SBU with reviewing the available evidence on how working environments impact health, particularly with respect to where women work. The aim of this report was to systematically review the scientific literature on correlation between occupational exposure and upper extremity pain. This report is a supplement to the report “Occupational Exposures and Neck and Upper Extremity Disorders”, that was published by SBU in 2012.


SBU will systematically review the epidemiological evidence exploring how exposure in the workplace correlates with pain in the upper extremities.
