Hello All,

Chiropractors and other health care professionals whose practice
involves the delivery of manipulative thrusts may themselves experience
injuries as a result of chronic overloading to the wrists, elbows, shoulders
and back, etc. Experienced clinicians often make mention of the need to use
"proper body mechanics" in the delivery of treatment to others but it
appears that little substantive information is available. We are interested
in following up all leads to studies/surveys/ergonomic assessments, etc.

Thanks very much, Kevin
