Hafiz Sheraz Arshad, Umer Maqsood, Asad Aziz


Abstract: This cross sectional survey was conducted to find out the level of awareness about correct sitting posture & association between the poor posture and chronic low back pain. A sample of 93 patients was taken from February 15, 2011 to April 30, 2011. The history of posture during job & work was taken through a structured questionnaire. VAS (visual analog scale) for pain intensity & pain duration were two dependent variables in study Out of 93 participants, 63 % were males. Pain intensities were found associated with poor habit of sitting during their job hours.82 % of participants were not involved in exercise habit. Only 23.7 % use Adjustable back support. High proportion of patients had poor knowledge of correct sitting posture and used to adapt poor posture. They ignored their pain which lead to recurrent micro trauma pain & disability. It is recommended that posture awareness program & workshop should be conducted in community centers.
