Abstract

Shoulder pain is a common complaint in the workplace. A shoulder condition may arise from acute trauma or non-traumatic work-related activities. Shoulder pain falls into three categories: acute, chronic, and referred pain. The occupational health nurse can document detailed health histories and focused complaint-driven physical examinations. Nurses’ expert assessments can guide injured workers to necessary treatment, case management, and return to full employment.
