Abstract Background: Knowledge of the diversity of occupational problems perceived by people with chronic pain is insufficient. Aims: To describe everyday occupational problems among patients with musculoskeletal pain enrolled in a pain rehabilitation programme, and to compare subgroups based on participant characteristics.

Major findings: The participants reported 706 prioritized everyday occupational problems categorized as self-care (37%), productivity (32%), and leisure (31%). Household management was the largest sub-category. Working, sitting, and cleaning the house were the specific occupational problems reported most frequently. Women reported significantly more occupations related to productivity and men reported more self-care occupations. Principal conclusion: Patients with pain have a wide range of occupational problems that need to be addressed, along with gender-specific needs. (Less)
