Abstract:
Session presented on: Thursday, July 25, 2013: Evaluation of musculoskeletal pain among nurses Purpose: The aim of this study is to assess the prevalence of pain related to musculoskeletal system among nurses. Methods: In a cross-sectional study, musculoskeletal pain was evaluated using the extended of the Nordic Musculoskeletal Questionnaire. A figure showing nine anatomical areas of the body used for the survey (neck, shoulders, upper and lower back, elbows, wrists/hands, hips/thighs, knees, and ankle/feet). Prevalence of musculoskeletal pain was analyzed using descriptive statistics. The logistic regression analysis was performed for identification of risk factors that may impact on pain. A significance level of 0.05 was set for the study. Results: The main age of nurses in the study was 32.70+/-8.03. Two hundred seventeen, of whom 92.6% had MS pain in at least one body part, participated in the study. The respondent most often reported symptoms in the low back (66.4%), upper back (56.2%), neck (51.6%), and ankle/feet (44.7%). 56.2% reported low back pain during the past 12 months, and 48.8% during the past one month and past one week (32.7%). Being male (odds ratio (OR) 2.21, 95% Confident interval (CI)1.22-4.01) and increased body mass index (OR 1.23, 95% CI 1.06-1.43) were the most important factors that increased pain complaints in at least one body part. Age wasn't found to be related to musculoskeletal pain. Conclusion: In this study, musculoskeletal pain was very common among nurses. It is important to provide training about occupational risks. A need to implement preventive measures, early diagnosis, and exercise programs for nursing personnel.
