Description: Back pain is a leading cause of suffering, high medical costs, and loss of productivity in the workplace. Through a multidisciplinary approach, this book addresses the widespread problem of musculoskeletal injuries in general and lower back injury in particular. It presents the principles of ergonomics and bioengineering and their application the prevention and rehabilitation of lower back injuries. Special attention is given to ergonomic methodologies such as human performance analysis and functional capacity assessment. Ways to structure workplaces and job tasks so as to minimize stress to the back and improve productivity are presented. Case studies and population profiles are drawn from ergonomic research performed a the Comprehensive Pain and Rehabilitation Center at the University of Miami. The authors discuss the origins of low back pain, events that lead to injury, and the consequences to employers. Back pain is correlated with specific occupational factors. Nearly 150 illustrations further these discussions. Among the important preventive and therapeutic measures explored are bodymechanics education and muscle reeducation; workplace design and biomechanics; functional electrical stimulation, electromyography, and biofeedback; and management of low back pain during rehabilitation and post-rehabilitation stages. Extensive epidemiological data show the devastating effects of low back pain on the economy, industry, and healthcare delivery. Also examined are the role of medical personnel in the evaluation and treatment of back pain and the contributions that can be made by an ergonomist who is part of a multidisciplinary healthcare delivery team. Ergonomics in Back Pain is intendedfor use by ergonomists, physicians, physical therapist, occupational therapists, vocational counselors, chiropractors, osteopaths, and rehabilitation medicine specials, as well as by engineers, workplace designers, and people working on the implementation of the American with Disabilities Act.
