Abstract:Chronic muscular pain has become an important problem, affecting a considerable part of the working population in the industrialised countries. Chronic muscular pain is a multifactorial problem and comprises a range of conditions that are not all clinically welldefined. Subjective symptoms include constant muscle pain, muscle fatigue and/or stiffness, and radiating pain. Identified risk factors for the development of chronic pain in the neck-shoulder region include exposure to awkward posture, repetitious movements, low level static contractions and high force demands. Beside these physical factors, psychosocial risk factors such as stress, high job demands and low vocational satisfaction play an important role. A variety of individual factors such as age, body mass index and perception of work load can contribute to the development of chronic pain as well.
