Background & objective: Chronic low-back pain is one of the most common disorders associated with chronic pain and is one of the costliest health care problems. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between back pain and physical activity in different occupations.
Materials & Methods: The research method was cross-sectional, descriptive-analytic and the statistical population of the study was the residents of Shashdeh in the city of Fasa in Fars province among whom 10,000 people were selected by census method. The instrument used was a national cohort questionnaire. To analyze the data, descriptive statistical tests, chi-square, independent t-test as well as logistic regression were used to model and estimate the odds ratio (OR) in SPSS-24 software.
Results: The mean and standard deviation of age of the participants in the study was 48.64 (9.57) and 54.8% of the study population were women. There was a significant difference between gender and low-back pain (P <0.000). With increasing one year of age, the chance of low-back pain increases 1.025 times (CI = 1.019 / 1.019 / 1.01, OR = 1.025). and people with heavy work status were 1.52 times more likely to have low-back pain compared with housewives (CI = 1.255 / 1-253, OR = 1.52)
 
Conclusion: Based on the results, it is suggested that intervention measures be taken to prevent low-back pain so that these disorders can be controlled in the future. Also, by training all people to perform physical activity and the principles of ergonomics in the workplace, it helps to improve the physical and mental health of people and causes better performance.
