Awkward Postures a Pain for Nurses.

Low back pain is the most common work-related musculoskeletal problem among healthcare workers. A recent study investigated trunk posture and its relationship to the occurrence of low back pain among a group of 87 nurses. The researchers found that 72% of the nurses in the study had a recent episode of low back pain, and awkward trunk postures in flexion and side bending significantly increased their risk for developing low back pain.
