Poster Information
Abstract: Flexible learning has become the new normal since the pandemic erupted last 2019 due to the Covid-19 outbreak. The goal of this research is to identify the factors that contribute to the development of musculoskeletal symptoms among college students enrolled in an online class. This study used a correlational research design. The Standardized Nordic Questionnaire (SNQ) was used to evaluate the musculoskeletal symptoms while a demographic questionnaire was used to gather pertinent information from the participants. A total of 194 college students agreed and consented to participate. The online class and sitting hours, gender, and location were identified to have a major contribution to the development of musculoskeletal symptoms of the students as revealed by the Fisher Exact Test and Point Biserial Correlation. Moreover, the lower back (53.43%), neck (46.9%), upper back (44.13%), shoulder (38.16%), and wrist and hand (36.8%.) were the regions that have the most commonly reported trouble among all the participants. Several factors are associated with musculoskeletal symptoms among college students undertaking online learning, hence proper body mechanics, stretching exercises, and energy conservation and relaxation techniques should be disseminated and learned to prevent the occurrence of possible musculoskeletal symptoms. Moreover, effective and efficient implementation of online classes should be studied to prevent health-related problems due to online classes.
