Low back pain is a destructive health problem of present era. It is affecting over a large population with huge economical loss. Office workers have a unique life style while working in static body position with poor body posture for long periods of time. The musculoskeletal problems can lead to uneasiness or pain which can have a bad impact on quality of life.

This cross sectional study was done to find the prevalence and risk factors of low back pain (LBP) among the office workers of King Edward Medical University (KEMU), Lahore- Pakistan. After the ethical approval from Institutional Review Board (IRB), KEMU -Lahore, a sample size of 300 office workers was calculated by using proportion formula of sample size estimation with 5% margin of error from KEMU with effect from Jan 2015 to Sep 2015.Participants aged between 18-60 years with at least 1 year work experience filled the validated questionnaires.

Results showed that Point & life time prevalence of LBP among office workers of King Edward Medical University, Lahore-Pakistan was 29.20% and 69.20% respectively. LBP prevalence increased with the increase in age, work experience, low education and decreased with physical activity, sleep disturbance, smoking habit, more sitting and standing time, computer use and with low job satisfaction.

We concluded that different individual, ergonomic, and psychosocial factors were associated with LBP. Because of high prevalence of low back pain (LBP) among office workers of this university, better ergonomic facilities, awareness about sitting posture, regular exercise, good sleep and psychological support to the workers were recommended to decrease the effects of predisposing risk factors of low back pain.
