Kathy and BIOMCH-Lers:

Other causes we know of are grocery checkout clerks, musicians (trumpet,
strings, etc.) and of course assistive devices for mobility (wheelchairs,
crutches, etc.). Also, there is no evidence that "sign language speakers"
(ie. deaf individuals) have an increased risk of CTDs, but rather it is
sign language interpreters who are at risk (presumably because they "talk"
during all parts of the conversation).
