Physiotherapy students’ stress and its relation to physical activity : A questionnaire study on physiotherapy students at Uppsala university (English)
Abstract [en]

Background. Mental illness occurs among Swedish physiotherapy students. One symptom is increased stress. Research has shown that physical activity has a resistant effect. However, the correlation is unclear.

Purpose. To describe the perceived level of stress and the level of physical activity among physiotherapy students at Uppsala University, describe differences between first-, second- and third-year students, what the correlation between the variables was and to what extent the stress is related to studies.

Method. A cross-sectional study with a web survey, which consisted questions from the surveys GA(2)LEN and Perceived Stress-10, and the rating-scale SNRS-11.

Results. The students’ perceived level of stress was high among 9,4%, moderate among 50% and low among 40,6%. 55,2% of the students had high physical activity-levels, 27,1% had moderate and 17,7% had low. Significant difference in stress was found between second- and third-year students (p=0,002). The correlation was -0,287 (p=0,006). The students ranked 7 out of 10 that the stress was related to studies. 

Conclusion. Physiotherapy students at Uppsala University were stressed which was related to studies. A majority met requirements of high physical activity-levels. The correlation was weak between physical activity and stress. There was a difference in stress between second- and third-year students.
