This disorder does not discriminate against male or female, young or old. Occasionally a client with constant back pain and the medication used to treat it can cause depression. There are many causes of back pain. The pain could stem from genetic problems such as poor spinal alignment, scoliosis and osteoporosis. It could also be caused by outside events like a car accident that inflicts severe spinal trauma.
The underwriting concern is focused on the disability caused by the pain and the medications. The potential for addiction or over-medication is present, and in extreme cases, paralysis of the bladder and bowel. The best source for information is the applicant followed by the APS. Except for extreme cases, with bowel and bladder involvement, standard is the usual action. Have your client complete our Informal Application and our Back Disorder Questionnaire and we will explore the possibilities for you.

Abstract: The overall aim of this thesis was to examine the association between job factors and the occurTence of musculoskeletal disorders, and in particular low back disorders, among female nursing personnel. The thesis is based on three separate projects. Two training programs for nursing personnel and one population-based case-referent study, called the MUSIC-Norrtälje study. The specific aim of the first study was to evaluate the implementation of a patient transfer technique at a hospital. According to the nurses who participated in the training program, the patient transfer technique was used and appreciated. During the study period, four yearly repeated surveys among the nurses indicated that psychological job strain was associated with back and neck/shoulder symptoms. High perceived physical exertion showed a consistent association with musculoskeletal symptoms. The prevalence of symptoms was rather stable, even though almost half of the nurses varied between reporting intensive ongoing musculoskeletal symptoms or not.

What chronic health conditions most frequently cause work limitation?
The National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) is the best source of information about which chronic health conditions most frequently cause work limitation. When respondents to the NHIS are asked about work limitation, they also are asked to specify "the main cause of this impairment." Back disorders (including orthopedic impairments and disc disorders) are the most frequent main causes of work limitation among people 18-69 years old. It is estimated that almost 4 million people experience work limitations that primarily are caused by back disorders, representing 21.1% of all main conditions. Back disorders are followed by heart disease (2.1 million people or 10.9% of main conditions), osteoarthritis and related disorders (1.6 million people or 8.3% of main conditions), and diseases of the respiratory system (1.1 million or 5.6%). Other top causes of work limitation include mental disorders (925,000 or 4.9%), orthopedic impairments of lower extremities (861,000 or 4.5%) and diabetes (624,000 or 3.3%).

What is the prognosis?
What research is being done? ... Additional resources from MEDLINEplus What is Back Pain? Back pain is a symptom that can arise from many causes. It can range from a dull, annoying ache to absolute agony. Many cases of back pain are caused by stresses on the muscles and ligaments that support the spine. Sedentary jobs and lifestyles may create a vulnerability to this type of stress or damage. Obesity, which increases both the weight on the spine and the pressure on the discs, is another factor. Strenuous sports such as football and gymnastics can also damage the back. Is there any treatment?

Ergonomic products: pros/cons
... VDT Reflections by Mark Rea Yes, we're having a little website formatting trouble! The content is back up, but getting it to look right is going to take some work. Please bear with us! This site contains office ergonomics information aimed at ergonomics committee members as well as office workers in general. The information here is based on the research literature whenever possible; it may not be consistent with some of the conventional wisdom that has persisted for decades, such as "sit up straight" or "have the monitor up high" or "the keyboard should be at elbow height." Office ergonomics deserves to be treated separately from general (industrial) ergonomics. The principles are the same, but there are so many subtle differences and different products that it's best to specialize. This site collects and publishes some "handouts" that have been used widely in training courses for office workers and ergonomists and health care professionals who work with office workers. The handouts have received good reviews with respect to their clarity, objectivity, and scientific basis. Some have been published in slightly different form in book chapters and manuals. We are pleased to share them with you.
