In years 2003-2005, 1248 laborers of Zegna Baruffa - Lane Borgosesia Company (establishment of Borgosesia and Vallemosso) have been visited and we selected 102 cases of pathology from upper extremity work-related musculoskeletal disorders in the units with working risk. Subsequently from April 2005 to May 2006 we have controlled the clinical evolution of the enlisted laborers and we noted that in 54% of the cases the clinical symptomatology has been resolved with a rest works and a correct therapy. The diagnosis, the treatment and the change of working duty can resolve a meaningful number of clinical cases.
