Back pain: it's women who suffer

Women are at least twice as likely as men to develop some musculoskeletal disorder of the upper body, such as lower back pain and carpal tunnel syndrome

Women are at least twice as likely as men to develop some musculoskeletal disorder of the upper body, such as lower back pain and carpal tunnel syndrome.

A study from Ohio State University carried out a meta-analysis of a range of studies that all confirmed this finding. Some of the studies found that women were up to 11 times more likely to suffer one of the disorders.

'Anyway you slice the data, women have a significantly higher prevalence for many of these disorders,' said Delia Treasler, one of the research team.
