In order to assess fear avoidance in our FRP population, we used the Fear Avoidance Beliefs Questionnaire (FABQ) which has 2 subscales to identify fearful beliefs that patients hold related to how physical activity and work affect low back pain.
If the athletes checked "yes" to having low back pain within the past 7 days, on the initial questionnaire, they were asked to describe the location of pain, complete the Numerical Pain Rating Score (NPRS), to assess lumbar pain severity, the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) to assess levels of functional impairment and Fear Avoidance Beliefs Questionnaire Score (FABQ) (Physical Activity Subscale) to assess fear of pain and avoidance of movement.
Prior to being interviewed she completed a medical history intake form, a pain diagram, a visual analog scale for pain (VAS), an Oswestry disability questionnaire, (28) and a Fear Avoidance Belief Questionnaire (FABQ).
In 2008 Cleland, Fritz and Childs attempted to examine "the psychometric properties of the Fear Avoidance Beliefs Questionnaire (FABQ) and the TSK in Patients with neck pain." (15) Using a cohort design, 78 subjects were asked to complete the Fear Avoidance Beliefs Questionnaire Work (FABQW) and Physical Activity (FABQPA) as well as the TSK at baseline and 2 day follow up.
Self-report measures included a pain diagram and Numeric Pain Rating Scale (NPRS) to determine the distribution of symptoms and intensity of current, best and worst levels of pain, the Neck Disability Index (NDI), and the Fear-Avoidance Beliefs Questionnaire (FABQ) (Cleland et al 2008), (Lee et al 2006).
