This standard-setting book is known for its practical approach to the assessment, management, and counseling of patients with regional musculoskeletal disorders resulting in occupational incapacity. The approach is supported by a display of the relevant science and the author’s philosophy in approaching uncertainties and discrepancies.
The Third Edition offers discussions of the current approach to the diagnosis and management of fibromyalgia and its sister functional somatic syndromes. Recent scientific studies explore the treatment of regional musculoskeletal disorders when such a sufferer feels compelled to seek care from a physician, surgeon or "alternative" provider. Dr. Hadler has pioneered an understanding of the interfaces between statutory recourse for disabling regional musculoskeletal disorders and the patient and physician.
Witty and persuasive, Hadler’s text is grounded in sound, scientific principles and has been recommended by ACOEM, JAMA, JBJS, and others.
The new edition of Occupational Musculoskeletal Disorders (3rd edition, 2004) is perhaps the best book ever written on this topic. It describes a scientific revolution in thinking about back pain, arm pain, knee problems, fibromyalgia, and the suffering that accompanies them.
For the physician, this is a hands-on guide to the intricacies of occupational musculoskeletal illnesses-their natural history, their diagnosis and management, and their regulatory and legal implications. For the ailing worker, it is an essential roadmap to coping with these illnesses and to navigating the medical and disability systems
Author Nortin M. Hadler, MD, was recently described in JAMA-the official journal of the American Medical Association-as a "philosopher and consummate physician." He has an encyclopedic knowledge of the scientific evidence and the courage to challenge the thinking that has created the current crisis.
This book is full of new evidence, elegant thought, and writing to match. Read this book. And then, as Hadler suggests, spread the word.

p.s. Readers may be also be interested in Hadler's other recent book The Last Well Person: How to Stay Well Despite the Healthcare System. It is a guide to preserving a sense of health and well-being in a medical culture that would turn all of us into "ticking disease time bombs." The Last Well Person provides a valuable counterpoint to Occupational Musculoskeletal Disorders.
