Lombalgie invalidante et situation sociale, résultats issus de l'enquête HID (Handicap-incapacité-dépendance), France

Abstract : Objective – Describe the relationships between disabling low back pain (LBP) and social status in France. Methods – The data were issued from the HID survey, a national survey on disability and handicap. Data from the two waves, 1999 and 2001, were used, for the age group 30-64 years. The definition for cases of disabling LBP was based on the description of health problems at the survey interview. Results – Subjects suffering from disabling LBP were over-represented in the working-class categories: a relationship with the social status in childhood was also observed. Despite the limitations, a large majority of cases were employed, more often (than in the general population) as manual workers. Over a two year period, negative changes in employment status were observed for cases more often than in the general population. Discussion-Conclusion – The results show inequalities occurring during childhood and adulthood before the onset of the diseases as well as their consequences once the disease appears. Different types of useful interventions could reduce inequalities in this field such as early prevention at the workplace, and policies aiming at keeping at work disabled subjects
