Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Fingersmärta är ett centralt besvär hos personer aktiva inom klättersport.

Det råder idag brist på studier som beskriver förekomsten av fingersmärta hos

klättrare.

Syfte: Beskriva och jämföra skillnad mellan en grupp klättrare med fingersmärta och

en grupp klättrare utan fingersmärta avseende olika individ- och klätterspecifika

faktorer.

Metod: Studien är en enkätstudie med en icke-experimentell design av tvärsnittstyp.

Populationen bestod av 472 deltagare som via ett icke slumpmässigt

bekvämlighetsurval fått svara på en elektronisk eller manuellt insamlad enkät.

Resultat: Ingen signifikant skillnad fanns mellan de två testade grupperna avseende

kön, ålder, BMI och antal aktiva år inom klättring. En signifikant skillnad fanns

mellan grupperna avseende svårighetsgrad inom klättring.

Konklusion: Den enda faktorn som är signifikant vid jämförelse mellan klättrare med

och utan fingersmärta är avseende svårighetsgrad inom klättring. Övriga faktorer var

icke signifikanta vilket inte stämmer överens med tidigare gjorda studier inom ämnet.

Vidare studier kring faktorer som skulle kunna påverka fingersmärta hos klättrare

efterfrågas.

Abstract [en]

Background: Finger pain is a common problem among climbers. There is currently a

lack of studies regarding what could affect the incidence of finger pain in climbers.

Aim: Describe and compare the difference between climbers with and without finger

pain regarding individual- and climbing specific factors.

Method: The study had a non-experimental design with a cross-sectional type. The

population consisted of 472 participants, asked to respond to a survey through a nonrandom

sample of convenience selection.

Results: No significant difference was found between the two groups tested regarding

gender, age, BMI and years of climbing. A significant difference was in level of

difficulty when climbing.

Conclusion: In this study, the only examined factor that is statistically significant is

the level of difficulty when climbing. The other factors examined were not

significant, wich does not correlate with previous studies in the subject. Further

studies about factors that might affect finger pain in climbers is requested.
