Abstract

Work-associated musculoskeletal disorders of the upper extremity are common and disabling. Research on these disorders is needed and requires valid methods of classification of the disorders for epidemiologic studies and measurement of their impact on functional status. This commentary discusses the methodologic aspects of classification and functional status assessment in upper extremity musculoskeletal disorders. (C) 2000 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
