They identify their health as good, and they are satisfied with their job. Nevertheless, the work ability of PE teachers may be decrease. Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to explore the work ability of Finnish PE teachers. What disorders or physical problems do PE teachers experience as a result of their job, and how do they affect job satisfaction? Are there differences between men and women or older and younger teachers? Key findings: Of the Finnish PE teachers (N=655), 31% reported that they had at least one disease or disorder that hindered their work ability. The most common were musculoskeletal disorders. PE teachers identified knee and back problems in particular. Good ability to work was related to higher job satisfaction.fi
