ABSTRACT

Background: Chronic low back pain (CLBP) is a common health problem around the globe and has substantial effect on the quality of life of sufferers. Health related quality
of life (HRQoL) of CLBP patients has been assessed in different countries. Objectives: The aim of this study was to identify the level of HRQoL of patients with nonspecific
CLBP in Bangladesh by using 36-item short form health survey (SF 36) and find correlation with SF36 and various sociodemographic factors. Methods: 120 participants with
nonspecific CLBP were recruited conveniently for this study. A questionnaire including sociodemographic questionnaire, Numeric Rating Scale (NRS) and SF 36 health
questionnaire was used for data collection. Results: The SF 36 scores were low in all dimensions and Mental Component Summary (MCS) reported lower score than Physical
Component Summary (PCS). Level of education was positively and pain intensity, age and smoking were negatively related with HRQoL. Pain intensity was found as a
significant predictor of HRQoL. Conclusion: Patients with nonspecific CLBP had lower health status in both physical and psychological dimensions and their HRQoL was
significantly impaired by pain intensity.
