Work-related upper limb disorders remain a challenge to the clinician because an estimated 75% are regarded as diagnostically unclassifiable. Evidence-based prevention and treatment of these frequent and disabling disorders have therefore been limited and largely unsuccessful. It is essential to identify the involved tissues and structures as well as the responsible pathologies. To do so would require improved diagnostic approaches.
