Data gathering instruments were demographic characteristics, low back pain, and quality of life questionnaires. Data were entered into SPSS 22 and were analyzed using descriptive and analytical statistics.
Results: The results showed that the related to the low back pain score of emergency medical technicians was 51.34± 4.149, which is high. In addition, the quality of life mean and standard deviation was 30.35± 4.851, which shows a low level. There is a significant relationship between back pain and quality of life (p = 0.001, R = 0.723).
Conclusion: Low back pain is so common among emergency medical personnel that the issue may affect a person's life and work and creates many problems in terms of personal, family, socially, economically, and professionally, which reduce their quality of life.
