Abstract [en]

During the past years it has been reported that musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) have increased in working life. The body region with the highest prevalence of reported pain is the neck region. Several studies show that MSD in the neck region varies between 20–68% among dentists and dental hygienists. The dental personnel work with a limited field of vision and space, which often results in an unnatural work posture. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of neck pain in dentists and dental hygienists working in the county of Västra Götaland, Sweden and to explore possible work-related and individual risk factors. The study was based on a questionnaire, which was sent out to all dentists and dental hygienists (n = 473) who worked at Folktandvården (response rate 60%). The overall prevalence of neck pain (neck pain every day the past month) was 23%. Female dentists and dental hygienists had an increased risk of neck pain compared to male dentists (OR 2.68, 95% CI 1.22 - 6.75). Dental personnel that experienced severe stress tended to have an increased risk of neck pain compared to those who perceived low stress (OR 2.08, 95% CI 0.94 - 4.53). We conclude that neck pain is a common problem among dental personnel in the county of Västra Götaland. Female dentists and female dental hygienists are at greater risk concerning the prevalence of neck pain.
