These risk factors include individual factors (e.g. age, gender, education level, teaching experience, teaching subjects and history of trauma), physical factors (e.g. working with computer, posture and duration) and psychosocial factors (e.g. work demand and colleague support). The strategies used by the teachers to cope with neck and upper limb pain, the preventive methods or the methods to decrease neck and upper limb pain were also examined.
