What does the last sentence mean? That it doesn't affect their work too much, or that it isn't reported as much as it should? I assume the second thing.

Cant see the article, but they will have some tests of work related functional ability (things like grip strength, dexterity tests etc).

They are saying that there are high levels of reported pain, but that the impact on functional ability is only mild-moderate according to the tests. Doubtless it is underreported as well, but idk if this study would be measuring that

It means they got chronic pain that they work through, because they have to.
