ABSTRACT

Objectives :This study is to determine the relationship between fear-avoidance beliefs, pain and disability index in patients with neck pain as well as to identify factors that influence on fear-avoidance beliefs, pain and disability index. Methods :The subjects used in this study were 35 patients with neck pain. Each of subjects completed a fear-avoidance beliefs questionnaire(FABQ) which divided into two subscales, FABQ for physical activity(FABQ-PA) and FABQ for work(FABQ-W), visual analog scale(VAS), and neck disability index(NDI). Results :Individual with radiation pain were significantly higher in FABQ-PA and NDI than individuals without radiation pain(p<0.05). And according causing neck pain were significantly difference in FABQ-W, FABQ-Total and NDI(p<0.01). In correlation analysis, the FABQ-PA were significantly correlated with FABQ-W(p<0.01) and FABQ-Total(p<0.01). FABQ-W appeared to be significantly correlated with FABQ-Total(p<0.01), VAS(p<0.05) and NDI(p<0.05). VAS was significantly correlated with NDI(p<0.05). Conclusions :This study suggest screening for fear-avoidance beliefs may be useful for identifying patients at risk of psychosocial problems as well as pain intensity and physical impairment.
