The raw data obtained were analyzed using SPSS software version 23 and involved descriptive and inference analysis. The results of the T-test and ANOVA analysis showed a significant relationship between lower back pain problems from age, gender, duration of experience as a driver (p), and side work performed by the respondent (p) before, during, and after the pandemic crisis Covid 19. The conclusion of the study found that the age and gender of the respondent, years of experience as a taxi driver, and parttime work is influencing the problem of back pain at the bottom among taxi drivers in the districts of Kota Setar and Kubang Pasu.
