AbstractMyofascial pain syndrome is a complaint due to a soft tissue disorder characterized by a taut band or trigger point. This syndrome can occur due to wrong work posture applied when sewing and the period of work. This study aimed to determine the relationship between work posture and tenure on myofascial pain syndrome on tailors. This study used a cross-sectional observational analytic method by using a sample form from a simple random sampling technique of 70 research subjects. Work posture was measured using Rapid Upper Limb Assessment (RULA), work tenure was measured using interviews, and myofascial pain syndrome was measured using the spearman correlation test. This study shows that working posture and tenure can affect the occurrence of myofascial pain syndrome on tailors. In addition, this study aimed to know the causative factors of the complaint so it can be appropriately handled and will not occur severe complaints in the future.
