Abstract

[Purpose] The purpose of this study was to investigate the occurrence of musculoskeletal symptoms and related factors in fishermen. [Participants and Methods] Forty-three fishermen participated in a survey which investigated the occurrence of musculoskeletal symptoms in the past 12 months, individual factors, working factors, and psychosocial factors. [Results] The incidences of musculoskeletal symptoms among fishermen were: low back (83.7%), hands/wrists (60.5%), and shoulders (53.5%). These musculoskeletal symptoms were associated with age, years of employment, occupational work, and stress in relationships. [Conclusion] The results of this study suggest that the physical load of work, differences in work dependent on age, and relationships are related to the development of musculoskeletal symptoms in fishermen.
