"There are significant differences in girth of ankle after work among three groups." was supported(Rt.:F=4.56, p=.016; Lt.: F=5.82, p=.006). "There are significant differences in girth of calf after work among three groups." was not supported(Rt. : F=1.76, p=.183; Lt. : F=1.94, p=.155) "There are significant differences in lower extremity pain after work among three groups." was supported(Rt. : F=95.33, p=.000; Lt. : F=81.33, p=.000).
