Introduction: Back pain is one of the most important occupational problems among health care workers that have detrimental effects on their personal and professional life. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the relationship between low back pain and quality of life in prehospital emergency staff and the role of demographic variables in this regard.
Materials and Methods: This is a descriptive correlational study. The population was a prehospital emergency staff that entered to study by using the census method at 2020. 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.
