Objectives: Many studies have been performed about work-related musculoskeletal pain (WRMSP) in various groups of professions. However pharmaceutical sales representatives (PSRs) have not been investigated with regard to their musculoskeletal problems related to their works. This study was aimed to investigate the prevalence of work-related musculoskeletal pain (WRMSP) and depression among PSRs; the quality of life in these subjects and to investigate which socio-demographic variables are associated with the presence of complaints, in Turkey.
