IMPACT OF KINESIOPHOBIA (FEAR BEFORE MOVEMENT) TO PHYSICAL ACTIVITY LEVEL IN PATIENTS WITH ARTERY HYPERTENSION
Faculty of Medicine, Medical University of Silesia, Katowice, Poland
Introduction: Insufficient level of physical activity is presence in general populations as well as in patients suffer from various somatic diseases. However still is little known about risk factors of hypokinesia. To date, lack is a study directly designed to assess impact of kinesiophobia to physical activity level in patients with artery hypertension.
Aim: The aim of the study was to evaluate the degree of kinesiophobia and physical activity level in patients with arterial hypertension and examine the relationship between kinesiophobia level and physical activity level.
Material and methods: A total of 88 (Mage=59,46, SDage=9,16) patients with diagnosed hypertension were examined. Following polish version of questionnaires were used: Kinesiophobia Causes Scale (KCS) and Habitual Physical Activity (HPA).
Results: Low level of physical activity and moderate intensity of kinesiophobia were noted. Moderate and strong correlations between domains and factors of kinesiophobia with physical activity domains were found. In addition, significant correlations between time since hypertension diagnosis with physical activity and kinesiophobia domains were also reported. High level of kinesiophobia was significantly associated with high level of physical inactivity.
Conclusions: Kinesiophobia may be an important factor contributing to limitation of physical activity and can play a significant role in modulation of physical activity level.
Key words: kinesiophobia, fear before movement, physical activity, hypertension.
