Título Low back pain in relation to physical work capacity and local tenderness.
Información bibliográfica Dec. 1973, Vol.2, No.2, p.119-132. Illus. 27 ref.
Resumen The authors compare the incidence of low-back pain and a variety of physical parameters in garbage-men with data from 20 years ago, and with present findings in teachers of disabled children. In spite of marked general improvements in physique, back muscle strength is considerably lower in garbage-men than 20 years ago, and 36.9% have experienced disturbing low-back pain. The rate was 49% and 59% in male and female teachers of handicapped children, respectively. Low-back pain in teachers correlated with poorer back muscle strength. After a review of the literature, the authors conclude that the different type of physical effort in these two groups of workers may play different roles in the causation of low-back pain.
