  1. (Reference group = NO neck OR back pain 56%). Multinomial Odds Ratios (MOR) are presented as ratio of risk for a change in the interquartile range of the score, i.e. moving from 25th to 75th percentile.
  2. 1Contrast to 'back pain only' also significant
  3. 2Contrast to 'neck pain only' also significant
  4. 3Gender interaction term p < 0.
