AIM: Musculoskeletal pain, the most common cause of disability globally, is most frequently managed in primary care. People with musculoskeletal pain in different body regions may have similar demographic characteristics. Therefore, this study aimed to determine the relationship between educational level and reducing musculoskeletal pain.
Method and Instruments: This cross sectional study was conducted among academic people working in Tarbiat Modares University from Apr to August 2020. The volunteer subjects were entered into this study after being informed about the aim and procedure of the study and signing the consent form. A researcher – made questionnaire based on the objectives of the study as well as a demographic characteristics questionnaire were used to collect data. In the objective based questionnaire, the participants were asked about their exercise doing and musculoskeletal pain. Data were entered into SPSS version 26 software and analyzed using descriptive/ analytical test.
Findings: Totally 93 participants with mean age of 36.15±11.42 years old were participated in the study. Of all participants, . Furthermore, 51 participants (54.8%) were male and 42 participants (45.2%) were female. Mann Whitney’s test showed that there was a significant relationship between gender and exercise activity (P value =<.001), which was higher in men than women. However, there was no significant relationship between musculoskeletal pain and educational level. (P = 0.401).
Conclusion: This study showed that the muscloskeletal pain were in similar severity in different level of education. However, doing further researches with larger sample size is recommended.
