Force and shoulder pain

"Studies that examined force or forceful work or heavy loads to the shoulder, or described exposure as strenuous work involving the shoulder abduction, flexion, extension, or rotation that could generate loads to the shoulder region were also included. Most of the studies that examined force or forceful work as a risk factor for shoulder symptoms or tendinitis had several concurrent or interacting physical work load factors. However, there is still a need to summarize present knowledge about the relationships between forceful work and shoulder musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs)." Source: NIOSH Publication No. 97-141:
