Overuse Syndromes in the Evaluation of Work Capacity
Puni tekst: pdf (59 KB),
Str. 509 - 516
Clinical picture and subjectÕs occupation are the main points of reference in the evaluation of work capacity in subjects with overuse syndrome. Particular attention is paid to the degree and the location of pain, as well as functional limitations with respect to demands of the workplace. If the diagnosis is right and therapy and rehabilitation intensive, overuse syndrome usually does not entail long sick leaves. Exceptions are the athletes and certain jobs which require longer periods of rehabilitation. Furthermore, untimely diagnosis and inadequate treatment may extend the period of incapacity. If the therapy and medical rehabilitation cannot completely remedy the functional deficit in performing the regular job, application of pension policy regulations may be necessary. This applies to the immediate danger of disability with the possibility to change the job for a more adequate one, as well as to the disability due to occupational or general incapacity to work. If the health condition predisposes younger persons to disability, they may exercise their right to professional rehabilitation. This review gives a list of occupational diseases and causes which may be applied to the disability generated by the overuse syndrome.
