Exercise more, sleep is not sore : - Physiotherapy students’ amount of exercise and sleep quality,  and correlation between the two variables (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Fysisk träning har observerats vara en faktor som påverkar sömnkvaliteten. På grund av tidskrävande universitetsstudier har det visats att såväl fysisk träning som sömn kan komma att bortprioriteras hos studenter. Studier kring hur Sveriges fysioterapeutstudenters träningsmängd korrelerar med sömnkvaliteten saknas.  Syfte: Att undersöka svenska fysioterapeutstudenters mängd fysiska träning och upplevda sömnkvalitet samt om det förelåg några skillnader mellan kvinnor och män. Syftet var dessutom att undersöka sambandet mellan fysisk träning och dålig sömnkvalitet. Metod: En kvantitativ tvärsnittsstudie med deskriptiv, komparativ och korrelerande design. Den fysiska träningen mättes med hjälp av Socialstyrelsens indikatorfråga för mängd fysisk träning en vanlig vecka och sömnkvaliteten bedömdes med Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI).  Resultat: Sammanlagt deltog 241 fysioterapeutstudenter. Totalt 58% tränade mer än 2 timmar per vecka. Majoriteten av deltagarna upplevde att de inte hade en dålig sömnkvalitet (PSQI= 4). Det fanns ingen signifikant skillnad mellan könen gällande fysisk träning (p= 0.83) och dålig sömnkvalitet (p= 0.14). Det fanns ett signifikant men mycket svagt samband mellan mängd fysisk träning och dålig sömnkvalitet, r= -0.14 (p= 0.04). Slutsats: Studien indikerar en överlag bra fysisk träningsnivå hos Sveriges fysioterapeutstudenter. Majoriteten upplevde att de inte hade en dålig sömnkvalitet. Det förelåg ingen könsskillnad gällande träningsmängd och sömnkvalitet. Korrelationen mellan mängd fysisk träning och dålig sömnkvalitet var mycket svag. 

Abstract [en]

Background: Physical exercise has been observed to be a factor that impacts on sleep quality. As a result of time-consuming university studies, it has been shown that students do not prioritise physical exercise or sleep. Studies on how Sweden’s physiotherapy students’ amount of physical exercise correlate with sleep quality are lacking.  Objective: To examine Sweden’s physiotherapy students' physical exercise and sleep quality, as well as whether there were any differences between women and men. The purpose was also to examine the correlation between physical exercise and poor sleep quality.  Methods: A quantitative cross-sectional study with descriptive, comparative and correlational design. Physical exercise was measured using the National Board of Health and Welfare’s indicator question and sleep quality was assessed with the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI).  Results: Altogether, 241 physiotherapy students participated. A total of 58% physical exercised more than 2 hours per week. The majority of the participants did not have a pore sleep quality (PSQI md= 4). There was no significant difference between the sexes regarding physical exercise (p= 0.83) and sleep quality (p= 0.14).  There was a very weak correlation between the amount of physical exercise and poor sleep quality, r= -0.14 (p= 0.04). Conclusion: The study indicates an overall good physical exercise level among Sweden’s physiotherapy students. The majority did not report poor sleep quality. There was no difference between the sexes in the amount of physical exercise or sleep quality. The correlation between physical exercise and poor sleep quality was very weak.
