  1. 1. Effects of repetitive work on proprioception and of stretching on sensory mechanisms implications for work-related neuromuscular disorders

    University dissertation from Umeå : Kirurgisk och perioperativ vetenskap

    Author : Martin Björklund; Håkan Johansson; Albert Crenshaw; Ronny Lorentzon; Måns Magnusson; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine; Repetitive motions; Muscle fatigue; Proprioception; Muscle stretching; Work-related musculoskeletal disorders; Nociception; Ergonomics; Medicin; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin; medicin; Medicine;

    Abstract : The aims of the thesis were (i) to investigate the impact of repetitive low-intensity work exposure on proprioception and (ii) to examine effects of muscle stretching (especially sensory effects and effects on muscle nociception) and to relate its application to the prevention, alleviation and/or treatment of work-related neuromuscular disorders.The effects of low-intensity repetitive work on the shoulder proprioception were tested in healthy subjects.

  2. 2. Effects of Repetitive Work on Proprioception and of Stretching on Sensory Mechanisms : Implications for Work-related Neuromuscular Disorders

    University dissertation from Arbetslivsinstitutets tryckeri, Umeå

    Author : Martin Björklund; [2004]
    Keywords : Repetitive motions; Muscle fatigue; Proprioception; Muscle stretching; Workrelated musculoskeletal disorders; Nociception; Ergonomics;

    Abstract : Repetitive low-intensïty work constitutes an important risk factor for Chronic Wark Related Neuromuscular Disorders (CWRND)· Derangemcnt of motor control, provoked by loaded or fati ued muscles, has been suggested as one of the underlying mechanisms behind these disorders. Faàgue-induced reduetion of proprioceptive acuity may be one of the factors accounting for the deranged motor eontrol. READ MORE

  3. 3. Autonomic reactivity in muscle pain : clinical and experimental assessment

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Nebojsa Kalezic; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; autonomic reactivity; stress; chronic pain; experimental pain; back; shoulder; neck; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Physiology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Fysiologi;

    Abstract : There are numerous indications of possible involvement of the autonomic nervous system in the genesis of chronic pain. The possibility exists that sympathetic activation is related to motor dysfunction and changes in sensory processing, which have otherwise been implicated in musculoskeletal disorders. READ MORE

  5. 5. Repetitive and monotonous work among women Psychophysiological and subjective stress reactions, muscle activity and neck and shoulder pain

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Psykologiska institutionen

    Author : Dag Rissén; Bo Melin; Ulf Lundberg; Anders Kjellberg; [2006]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Repetitive and monotonous work; women; psychophysiological stress reactions; subjective stress reactions; muscle activity; trapezius muscle; neck and shoulder pain; job rotation; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Psychology; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Psykologi;

    Abstract : Repetitive and monotonous work is frequently associated with neck and shoulder pain and negative psychosocial factors inducing stress reactions. The present thesis concerns the relations between psychophysiological and subjective stress reactions, muscle activity measured by surface electromyography (SEMG) in the trapezius muscle, and neck and shoulder pain in women performing repetitive and monotonous work.
