Abstract

The association of physical activity, standing, and sedentarism with the experience of pain is not yet completely clear. Research for this master's thesis investigated whether device measured sedentary behavior, standing, or physical activity in different power ranges was associated with pain or painrelated disability among overweight or obese adults with little physical activity. In the crosssectional study, standing time was positively associated, and sedentary time was negatively associated, with painrelated disability. Light or brisk physical activity was not associated with painrelated disability. Standing, sedentary behavior, or physical activity was not associated with pain in different parts of the body. Based on the results of the study, standing may act as a means of coping with pain among adults whose physical activity is too little relative to the recommendations.
