|dc.description.abstract||Background: Previous studies have shown an association between computer use and musculoskeletal symptoms (MSS). Over the last decade, there has been a significant increase in computer use among post-secondary students.
Objective: This review aims to explore the relationship between computer use and MSS in post-secondary students.
Methods: A structured literature review was conducted to examine the association between computer use and MSS in post-secondary students. Keywords included musculoskeletal symptoms, musculoskeletal pain, undergraduate students, graduate students, laptop use and computer use.
Results: Eight peer-reviewed studies were appraised and included in the review. A relationship between computer use in post-secondary students and MSS was found in all eight studies.
Conclusion: The literature supports the relationship between computer use in post-secondary students and MSS. Future directions for study will be discussed.|
