This paper present some of the most important epidemiology reviews of the relationship among the musculoskeletal disorders (MSD's) and risk factors in the job, individual factors of the workers and organizacional factors. Positive epidemiology association are noticeable. This paper concluded that in spite of lack of prospective studies and uncertainly about the precise pathophysiologic mechanisms involved, current studies point to a multifactorial relationship between work exposure and disorders of the hand, wrist and elbow. Some disorders, such as tendinitis and carpa1 tunnel syndrome (CTS), are clearly associated with work involving repetitive and forceful use the bands. Finally, some reviews concluded that the epidemiologic evidences provides support for association between workplace and physical and psychosocial exposures and both back and upper extremity musculoskeletal disorders.
