Título Low back pain among Iranian industrial workers
Información bibliográfica Oct. 2006, Vol.56, No.7, p.455-460. 32 ref.
Resumen The objective of this cross-sectional study was to determine the prevalence of low back pain (LBP) among Iranian industrial workers. The sample consisted of workers at the largest car-manufacturing group in the country. The prevalence of LBP, work exposures, personal and lifestyle factors were recorded using the standardized Nordic questionnaire. Of the 18,031 employees, 78% participated. The majority of subjects were young men, with a small proportion of women (4%). The one-year prevalence of self-reported LBP was 21% (20% for males and 27% for females). The rate of absenteeism due to LBP was 5% per annum. Multiple logistic regression models indicated the following risk factors for LBP in the previous 12 months: age; lack of regular exercise; heavy lifting; repetitive work; monotonous work.
