Dr. Juhi Bharnuke | Janvi Ahire
Abstract: Musculoskeletal disorders of the back (LBP) are amongst the leading causes of occupational injury and disability in both developed and developing countries. The clinical problem of lumbar region of spine is referred as low back disorder and has long been recognized. Occupation low back disorders (OLBD) include both acute low back and chronic low back pain. They are the most common and costly occupation health and safety problems in the working population. Moderate loading appears protective because it raises tissue tolerances through tissue remodeling. However, excessive loading reduces safety margins, and excessive repetition can decrease tissue tolerance through cumulative trauma. This study revealed as high as 60% of a cohort of individuals who engaged in regular gardening work with the adoption of deep squatting reported to have experienced back pain during and/after their gardening work.
