Multisite musculoskeletal pain has shown to have an even higher adverse impact on the individual. We examined prevalence and intensity of multisite musculoskeletal pain in surgeons and identified characteristics associated with two or more painful body sites.MATERIALS AND METHODS: Information on sociodemographic, work experience, work demands, health status, physical capacity, and prevalence and intensity of musculoskeletal pain were collected from an internet-based questionnaire in 284 surgeons. Descriptive statistics were used to report prevalence and intensity of musculoskeletal pain. A logistic regression model was conducted to assess the characteristics associated with multisite musculoskeletal pain.RESULTS: Musculoskeletal pain was reported by 93% of the surgeons and 77% experienced multisite pain. The reported median pain intensities ranged from 2 to 4. Multisite musculoskeletal pain was significantly associated with being a female surgeon (OR: 3.4; 95% CI: 1.5-7.4), physical work demands (OR: 1.5 95% CI: 1.2-1.7), work ability (OR: 3.4; 95% CI: 1.6-7.0), and feeling a sense of heaviness in the head/headache (OR:4.8; 95% CI: 2.0-11.5).
