About

The prevalence and consequences of musculoskeletal pain is considerable among healthcare workers, allegedly due to high physical work demands of healthcare work. Performing physical exercise at the workplace together with colleagues may be more motivating for some employees and thus increase adherence. On the other hand, physical exercise performed during working hours at the workplace may be costly for the employers in terms of time spend. Thus, it seems relevant to perform a brief intervention. This study is intended to investigate the difference between the effect of workplace-based physical exercise (using elastic bands and body weight exercises) and a group control on musculoskeletal pain, physical exertion during work, physical function, need for recovery, self-rated use of analgesics, and work ability among healthcare workers.
