KRONİK MEKANİK BEL AĞRILI HASTALARDAKI AĞRI ŞİKAYETİNİN CİNSİYET VE MESLEĞE BAĞLI DEĞİŞKENLİĞİNİN İNCELENMESİ

Amaç: Bu çalışmanın amacı kronik mekanik bel ağrılı hastalarda ağrıbulgularını araştırmaktı. Gereç ve yöntem: Çalışmamız, HacettepeÜniversitesi Sağlık Bilimleri Fakültesi Fizik Tedavi ve RehabilitasyonBölümü Ortopedik Rehabilitasyon Ünitesinde kronik mekanik bel ağrısıtanısı ile başvuran 75 hasta üzerinde retrospektif inceleme ilegerçekleştirildi. Hastaların demografik özellikleri ile birlikte ağrı düzeyleri,istirahat ve aktivite sırasında hissedilen ağrı şiddeti, ağrının lokalizasyonu,ağrının tipi, ilk ağrıyı başlatan olay, ağrının hissedildiği pozisyon ve ilacacevap verip vermediği incelendi.Sonuçlar: Hastalarımızın büyük çoğunluğunu kadınlar (% 65) ve evhanımlarının (% 31) oluşturduğu görüldü. En fazla ağrıyı başlatan olay ağırkaldırma (%69), ağrının hissedildiği pozisyon ayakta uzun süre durma(%52) olarak belirlendi. Ağrı devamlı-künt (%27) ve gerilme tarzında (%27),en fazla bel bölgesinde (%56) tariflendi. Hastaların büyük çoğunluğunun(%77) ağrı kesici ilaç kullanmadıkları belirlendi

INVESTIGATING THE VARIABILITY OF PAIN IN PATIENT WITH CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN ACCORDING TO SEX AND OCCUPATION

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigated pain characteristicsin patients with chronic low back pain.Material-Methods: 75 patients with chronic low back pain wereinvestigated retrospectively in Hacettepe University, Faculty of HealthScience, Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation. The patient’sdemographic information, severity of pain, during physical activity and rest,the region of pain, the type of pain, activity initialising pain, the positionspain is felt the most and response to pain killers.Results: It was seen that most of our patients were women (65%) andhousewives (31%). The activity initialising pain the most lifting weight (69%)the position pain was felt the most was standing for a long while (52%).Pain was noted to be blunt and frequent (27%) and tension mostly locatedat the back. Most of the patients weren’t using pain killers.Discussion: This study indicates that housewives are at great risk inhaving back pain. It is important that ergonomic training should be taughtduring activities that involve lifting weight in preventing low back injuries
