Abstract

Aim the present study was to determine the prevalence of WMSDs in laboratory Personnel. Objective of the study was to evaluate the main health disorders (Neck Pain) of laboratory workers. Both male and female and laboratory personnel having worked experience of one or more than one year were included in the study. Laboratory personnel having any pathology related to neck and recent trauma or surgery to neck or shoulder were excluded from the study. Cross sectional descriptive study using a self-administered questionnaire was used. Laboratory personnel having work experience of one or more than one year were taken. An informed written consent was taken from the laboratory personnel who fulfilled the inclusion criteria. They were asked to fill a self-administered questionnaire which was then evaluated. The total number of participants was 120. The mean age was 28 years and the overall disability rate was 82.5%. The reasons for developing neck pain can be due to Cumulative trauma disorders (CTD) or repetitive strain injuries (RSI) or occupational overuse syndromes (OOS) of the musculoskeletal system or work related musculoskeletal disorders. These situations often lead to development of overuse syndromes, persistence of symptoms thus becoming recurrent and/or chronic. Thus, Neck pain is significantly prevalent in laboratory a personnel who is dependent on gender as well as BMI and not dependent on years of experience.
