Low Back and Neck Pain in Locomotive Engineers Exposed to Whole-Body Vibration

McBride, David; Paulin, Sarah; Herbison, G. Peter; Waite, David; Bagheri, Nasser


The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence and excess risk of low back pain and neck pain in locomotive engineers, and to investigate the relationship of bothwith whole-body vibration exposure. A cross-sectional survey comparing locomotive engineers with other rail worker referents was conducted. Current vibration levels were measured, cumulative exposures calculated for engineers and referents, and low back and neck pain assessed by a self-completed questionnaire. Median...[Show more]
