Etude des troubles musculo-squelettiques multi-sites : données en population salariée dans les Pays de la Loire

Abstract : The objective was to describe multisite musculoskeletal symptoms (MSS) in a populationof salaried workers (Loire valley epidemiological surveillance network) and to improvetheir characterization.Data concerning MSS were collected in 2002-2004 using the self-administered “Nordic”questionnaire which allowed estimating MSS during the last year for nine anatomical sites.The study confirmed the importance of multisite MSS declared, whether in terms offrequency or extent (2/3 of multisite MSS among which 93% which concerned twoanatomical regions or more), including the MSS of duration accumulated of at least 30days. Multisite MSS concerned all the workers, even if some groups presented more raisedprevalence (women and older workers). All MSS declared on the various anatomical siteswere statistically very dependent some of the others and the duration of MSS (< or 30days) was important because the various SMS declared by a person were mostly the sameduration. Analyses by hierarchical ascending classification allowed to identify eight classescharacterized by the presence, the extent, the duration and the distribution more or lesssystematized of the declared MSS. We can however underline some results: the MSS of thelow back were not the most specifics in extent multisite MSS; the MSS of the upper backand those of the hip seem particularly important at the persons declaring extent multisiteMSS.This work showed the importance of multisite MSS at the workers salaried and allowed tobring to the foreground a preliminary typology of these disorders.
