Abstract provided by Publisher
Background. Neck pain has become a common epidemiological problem. One of the reasons for this is a sedentary way of life, connected with using a PC during all daily activities. The aim of our study was to explore the relation between serious neurological symptoms and signs originating from the cervical spine and protracted time working on a computer. We were also interested in how the workplace is organized ergonomically.
Material and method. We examined 46 persons by questionnaire. They were asked about work-day organization, ergonomics of the workplace, and signs and symptoms of neck overload.
Results. Among the participants in our study we found many cases of neck pain, disturbances of sensation, loss of finger strength, uncoordinated finger movements, and vertigo. Workplace and work duration has not been properly adapted to the personal physical conditions of these employees.
Conclusions. We estimate that many cases of discomfort and ultimately pain in the neck region are connected with computer work that lasts too long with poor ergonomic organization.
