Abstract
Background: Low back pain is a prevalent health concern linked to various occupations. Office-based jobs often involve prolonged incorrect sitting, while field-based roles can stress the lower back. This study aimed to assess low back pain prevalence and associated occupational risks in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Methods: A cross-sectional study surveyed working individuals in Saudi Arabia using an Arabic online questionnaire from October 25 to November 10, 2022. Participants were exclusively from Saudi Arabia and answered questions on socio-demographics, daily physical activity, and low back pain disability.
Results: The study involved 398 participants, with 52.8% being female. Low back pain prevalence varied: mild pain (22.3%), severe pain (10.6%), and moderate pain (26.4%). Females had a higher percentage of low back pain (54.5%) compared to males (45.5%).
Conclusion: The study revealed varying degrees of low back pain prevalence among participants. Multiple factors, including personal care, lifting, walking, sitting, standing, sleeping, sexual life, social activities, tourism, and transportation, were associated with lower back pain.

Key words: Back, pain, office-based, Saudi Arabia, occupational.
