  Abstract OBJECTIVE: To study potential associations between body height and subsequent occurrence of chronic low back pain (LBP). DESIGN: Prospective cohort study. SETTING: The North-Trondelag Health Study (HUNT). Data were obtained from a whole Norwegian county in the HUNT2 (1995-1997) and HUNT3 (2006-2008) surveys. PARTICIPANTS: Altogether, 3883 women and 2662 men with LBP, and 10,059 women and 8725 men without LBP, aged 30-69 years, were included at baseline and reported after 11 years whether they suffered from LBP. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Chronic LBP, defined as pain persisting for 3 months during the previous year. RESULTS: Associations between body height and risk and recurrence of LBP were evaluated by generalised linear modelling. Potential confounders, such as BMI, age, education, employment, physical activity, smoking, blood pressure and lipid levels were adjusted for. In women with no LBP at baseline and body height >/= 170 cm, a higher risk of LBP was demonstrated after adjustment for other risk factors (relative risk 1.19, 95% CI 1.03 to 1.37; compared with height
