Abstract

Low back pain is the main cause of activity limitation and can cause socio-economic losses to a person, society, and country. Low back pain is pain that is localized between the 12th rib and the lower part of the gluteal folds with or without pain radiating to the legs. The risk factors for low back pain at the age of 18-56 years vary, namely psychosocial factors, individual factors, and occupational factors. One of the risk factors that are included in the occupational factor is that workers who sit for half or more than half of their work shift period have a greater risk of experiencing complaints of non-specific low back pain. This is thought to be due to the theory of muscle fatigue when maintaining a sitting position and the theory of intervertebral discs. The purpose of this study was to find a relationship between sitting duration and low back pain in office workers in DKI Jakarta. The results obtained were from 61 respondents who took part in the study, as many as 4 (6.56%) respondents who had a sitting duration of less than half the time working every day without low back pain, 1 (1.64%) respondents who had a sitting duration of less than out of half the length of time working every day with low back pain, 17 (27.87%) respondents who have a sitting duration equal to or more than the length of time working every day without low back pain, and 39 (63.93%) respondents who have duration of sitting equal to or more than the length of time worked each day with low back pain. Based on the Fisher exact test calculation, p < 0.05 (p = 0.044) which states that there is a relationship between sitting duration and low back pain with Prevalence Ratio = 3,5.
