Abstract

Background: India is a nation with crowded streets and limited parking spaces, making two wheelers as a preferred modes of commute in cities. Current design of motorbike in market is not equipped with back leaning postures support features for rider leading to musculoskeletal pain in the riders. Use of helmets causes discomfort in neck region; such pain and discomfort affect the quality of life leading to disability (QoL).

Objectives: To find out the correlation between Pain and Disability in Cervical and Lumbar Spine in Two- Wheeler Riders Among Physiotherapy Profession based on Neck Disability Index (NDI), Oswestry Disability Index and Numeric Pain Rating Scale (NPRS).

Method: 30 young adults with neck and low back pain between 20-30 years, Riding bike more than 1 year were assessed for pain and disability.

Result: Data was analyzed by Pearson’s Correlation Coefficient suggesting strong positive correlation between Neck pain with Neck Disability (r = 0.53) and Low back pain with Low back Disability (r = 0.44)

Conclusion: There is a significant positive correlation between pain and disability of cervical and lumbar spine

Keywords: Neck Disability Index; Oswestry Disability Index; Neck Pain
