Abstract

Date Presented 3/30/2017

Women (ages 18–79 yr) were surveyed to evaluate their upper-body symptoms associated with carrying a shoulder purse. The significant results will promote awareness of this risk in the field of occupational therapy and prevent further upper-body injuries that may limit occupational performance.
