Step 2: Select the Limitation

Cumulative Trauma Disorders (CTDs)

Skip Intro

CTDs are disorders that are caused, precipitated, or aggravated by repeated exertions or movements of the body. Continuous use or pressure over an extended period of time results in wear and tear on tendons, muscles, and sensitive nerve tissue. Most common parts of the body affected are the wrists, hands, shoulders, back, neck, and eyes. CTDs are groups of disorders with similar characteristics and may be referred to as: repetitive trauma disorders, repetitive strain injuries, overuse syndromes, regional musculoskeletal disorders, and work-related disorders.

Accommodations are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. We have compiled a non-inclusive list of limitations that result in common accommodation situations. In addition, you can find more information at JAN's A to Z Web page at: http://askjan.org/media/atoz.htm.

Please select the limitation that corresponds with the individual needing an accommodation below.
