OBJECTIVES: This study investigated spinal pain-related absenteeism at age 17 as a potential precursor to work presenteeism at age 23.
METHODS: A longitudinal study was performed with Raine Study Gen2 participants (n = 451). Spinal pain-related absenteeism from school/work was collected at the 17 year follow-up. Presenteeism (due to ill-health or any other reason) was collected quarterly during one year around the age of 23. Zero-inflated binominal regression analysis was conducted.
RESULTS: Participants with adolescent spinal pain-related absenteeism reported higher work presenteeism in early adulthood than those without pain (155.7 hours/year compared to 77.7 hours/year), with an incident risk ratio (95% confidence interval) of 1.41 (1.04 to 1.92) after adjusting for sex, occupational class and multimorbidity count.
CONCLUSIONS: Targeting factors associated with absenteeism behaviours during early life may have significant benefits for future work productivity.
