Prevalence of Wrist Pain in Bakers

Priyanka Tripathi [2] | Dr. Sarvesh Shirsat [2]

Abstract: This study delves into the prevalence and underlying factors of wrist pain among bakers, a group engaging in physically demanding activities including dough kneading, rolling, and handling heavy equipment. Utilizing a questionnaire - based cross - sectional study design, the research sampled 60 bakers from Mumbai, assessing wrist pain through self - reported measures. The findings underscore a significant prevalence of wrist pain, particularly among female bakers, attributed to biological and social factors such as bone density differences and additional wrist strain from household chores. The study highlights the necessity of ergonomic considerations, regular physical exercises, and specific interventions to mitigate wrist pain among bakers, emphasizing the gap in research on occupational health within this profession. It presents a pioneering exploration into the occupational hazards faced by bakers, advocating for improved workplace ergonomics and health awareness in the baking industry.
