RODRIGUEZ-ROMERO, Beatriz; PITA-FERNANDEZ, Salvador; MARTINEZ-RODRIGUEZ, Alicia  e  FERNANDEZ-CERVANTES, Ramón. Healthcare consumption due to musculoskeletal pain in fishery sector workers. Gac Sanit [online]. 2014, vol.28, n.1, pp.61-64. ISSN 0213-9111.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.gaceta.2013.06.010.

Objective: To determine the frequency and factors associated with medicine consumption and consultations with family physicians due to musculoskeletal pain in fishery workers. Methods: We performed a cross-sectional study (n = 929). The variables analyzed consisted of sociodemographic factors, the frequency of musculoskeletal pain, healthcare resource consumption, back pain disability (Roland-Morris) and health-related quality of life (SF-36). Results: A total of 98.7% of the sample were women, with a mean age of 50.6 years. Musculoskeletal pain was reported by 66.5%, 43% were taking medication, and 64% had consulted their family physician due to musculoskeletal pain. The factors associated with medication intake in the logistic regression analysis were the number of years worked in the sector, hip-knee pain, bodily pain and physical functioning. The variables associated with physician visits were the presence of hip-knee pain, neck-back-shoulder pain, bodily pain, and social functioning. Conclusions: The variables most closely associated with resource utilization were hip-knee pain and the physical dimension of health-related quality of life, especially bodily pain.
