Evidence Report: Musculoskeletal Disorders II, Spinal Cord Injury and Commercial Motor Vehicle Driver Safety

The purpose of this evidence report is to address several key questions posed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Each of these key questions was developed by the FMCSA so that the answers to these questions provide information that would be useful in updating its current medical examination guidelines. The three key questions addressed in this evidence report are as follows: Key Question 1: Do musculoskeletal disorders of the hand, wrist, elbow, or shoulder (specifically carpal tunnel syndrome, ulnar neuropathies, radial neuropathies, tendonitis/tenosynovitis, and bursitis) increase crash risk and/or affect driving ability? Key Question 2: Do musculoskeletal disorders of the foot, ankle, or knee (specifically plantar fasciitis, tarsal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis/tenosynovitis, and bursitis) increase crash risk and/or affect driving ability? Key Question 3: Does reduced limb mobility and/or control resulting from spinal cord injury increase crash risk and/or affect driving ability?
