原始语种摘要: It is women who are predominantly affected by musculoskeletaldisorders of the upper extremities (MSD/UE), especially those disordersattributed to repetitive strain or cumulative trauma. This study focuses on afemale sample of supermarket employees and the effects of stress acquired fromtheir non-work environments on the reporting of musculoskeletal symptoms.Stress and life events were shown to be positively associated with the presenceof UE disorders and measures of intensity, duration, and frequency of pain. Amultifactorial model for explaining the development of MSD/UE in female workersis proferred, while the significance of understanding the inter-relationalnature of women's lives is underscored. Additionally, the study lends credenceto the physiological underpinning of stress.
