It is clear that ergonomic factors in the workplace account for many of the injuries sustained by patients on a daily basis. In 2002, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) counted 593,000 musculoskeletal injuries in American workplaces, accounting for more that one out of three of the injuries and illnesses involving recuperation time away from work. A large number of patients diagnosed with orthopedic conditions have ergonomic factors that play a major role in their outcome.
