Default For any military Physical therapists

I notice a few uniformed PT's hanging around SS. Question for you.

What is the...or is there any research out there regarding the effects of ruck sack marching and running in the military on back pain, knee pain etc?

We have a group of people where I work who are attempting to suggest that the years of abuse via forced ruck sack marching and running result in earlier onset of degenerative changes leading to diability claims for various MSK issues.

Anyone have a bead on any literature specific to the military with regards to this? Any military will do.

Thanks for any help

Proud the paper below may be of some value

Wai et el 2010 Causal assessment of occupational carrying and low back pain: results of a systematic review. Spine Journal 10 p628ff

I think there were some studies into military personal included. You should be able to find them in the reference list I should think.

other parers by Wai may be found here and here

regards

ANdy

Thank you very much Andy. Do you have access to the full text? I cannot seem to find a link where I can view the reference list.

Thanks
