Flight crew has a work environment that can increase the risk of low back pain (LBP). The aim of this study is to find out whether the working period in commercial flight crews correlate with LBP. This study is an evidence-based case report, with literature searching conducted in the PubMed, Cochrane, and Ingenta databases. The inclusion criteria in the search were literatures with research subjects as crew members presenting LBP. Critical appraisal was carried out in accordance with the methods in the articles. After selecting literatures, we found three literatures based meet with the criteria. All articles use cross-sectional method. Only one study has the best quality, where the result of the study showed that there was no increase in the number of LBP sufferers within the 10-24 years of working period (Odds Ratio: 0.93 and 95% Confidence Interval: 0.78-1.03). These evidences are still insufficient to prove that the longer working period increases the risk of LBP in commercial flight crews, due to low level of evidence.
