The generalized resistance resources (GRR) are defined as any characteristic of a person, primary group, subculture or society that is able to facilitate effective tension management. The attainment of a strength sense of coherence is dependent on the presence of GRR. A strong SOC is associated with good health condition. In this context, investigation whether sense of coherence is associated with fear of movement seems essential. The purpose of the study was to identife the role of sense of coherence in management of kinesiophobia (fear of movement) level. 115 participants with diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases in age of 40 - 84 years were examined. In this study sociometric techniques were used - Polish versions of the questionnaires: Sense of Coherence Scale (SOC-29), Kinesiophobia Causes Scale (KCS), and Baecke Habitual Physical Activity (HPA). Mean values obtained in SOC-29 were as follows: male: 132,59 ± 27,61 vs female: 120,76 ± 16,27; p=0,046. Overall KCS score was 45,88 ± 13,23 in case of males and 48,05 ± 15,61 in case of female (p=0,315). Correlations between SOC and its components with biological domain (-0,32<r<-0,57, p<0,05), psychological domain (-0,30<r<-0,68, p<0,05) and overall KCS score (-0,31<r<-0,66, p<0,05) were found. Summarize, its conclude that strong sense of coherence is associated with low kinesiophobia level.
