The shoulder, knee and spine are the most commonly injured areas in an occupational medicine practice. Our understanding of the types of injury, what anatomical structures are involved, and how to best image these injuries is constantly changing and improving. This session will cover the history, physical exam, anatomy, common injuries and mechanism of injury, and appropriate imaging of these three commonly injured areas. This session will be a wonderful review and a lead-in for the companion session – Knee, Shoulder, Spine – Treatment, Return to Work and Permanency. This session may be of particular interest to residents and recent graduates.
