Background: Back pain in an occupational group stands for one of the most ordinary and most costly workrelated health problems in both developed and developing countries. Its reasons have been described as multifactorial and prevalence rate changes between body sites and location of study. Objective: The objective of study to find out the frequency of low back pain and its associated factors in boy’s college teachers working at twin cities (Rawalpindi and Islamabad) of Pakistan. Methodology: A cross sectional survey based on self-administered pre tested questionnaire among 450 college teachers. Non probability purposive sampling was used to recruit teachers from their institutions in which they work. Duration of study was 6 months (July to December 2015) and data was analyzed using SPSS 20. Results: Frequency of back pain was 44% as there were total 200 teachers who experienced it out of 450 teachers in selected colleges. There were 180 (90%) teachers who reported that they spend 3 hours on class preparation and self-study and the daily work burden was 4-12 hours. Conclusion: This study showed high prevalence of low back pain among male teachers associated with increased standing time and higher workload which have negative impact on their performance and daily activities.
