Research output: Contribution to journalAbstract


Background: Distal upper limb pain is relatively common, causes disability and work incapacity and is costly to society. Physical and psychosocial risk factors have been implicated in its aetiology, but there is limited evidence regarding how these factors relate to prognosis. The current study aims to evaluate prognosis and factors affecting the natural course of distal upper limb pain.
