Perceived exertion at work in women with fibromyalgia: Explanatory factors and comparison with healthy women

By Annie Palstam, et al.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVE: To investigate perceived exertion at work in women with fibromyalgia.

DESIGN: A controlled cross-sectional multi-centre study. Subjects and methods: Seventy-three women with fibromyalgia and 73 healthy women matched by occupation and physical workload were compared in terms of perceived exertion at work (0–14), muscle strength, 6-min walk test, symptoms rated by Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQ), work status (25–100%), fear avoidance work beliefs (0–42), physical activity at work (7–21) and physical workload (1–5). Spearman’s correlation coefficient and linear regression analysis were conducted.
