. Spine Injuries – Low back (Lumbar), Mid Back Thoracic) and Neck (Cervical)

. Shoulder injuries (think nursing or child care, activities that involve repetitive lifting, turning, pushing or pulling)

. Psychological disorders (The law requires an actual touching; a gun held inches from your head is not enough!)
. Amputation
. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
. Concussions
