L’objectif de cet article était d’estimer le fardeau de la lombalgie chez les travailleurs américains, son lien avec le travail et ses effets sur le travail.

The employment of patients with back pain has implications for both the factors causing or contributing to the pain and its effects, but few estimates of the proportion of back pain that is related to work in the United States are available (1). In 2015, the NHIS (National Health Interview Survey) collected supplemental data about the work-relatedness and the effects on work of back pain—specifically, low back pain (LBP)—among U.S. workers for the first time since 1988. The objective of this article was to estimate the burden of LBP among U.S. workers, its work-relatedness, and its effect on work.
