Misbah Tahir, Rehana Niazi, Abbas Jamil, Nazir Mehrvi.

Abstract
Objective: To assess the level of Kinesiophobia among chronic low back pain patients and its association with pain intensity.
Methodology: This descriptive cross-sectional study was carried out on 140 patients who were selected through non-probability convenient sampling. Patients of both gender who were receiving physiotherapy were included in study. Patients with trauma, neurological or pathological conditions were excluded. We used Tampa Scale to evaluate Kinesiophobia, and Numeric Pain rating scale to measure pain intensity. Data were analyzed using SPSS 22.
Results: Out of 140 patients, there were 60 (43%) males and 80 (53%) females. Age ranged between 40-60 years (mean 50.16±5.889). The mean Kinesiophobia score was 40.13±8.576 and 60.7% had high level Kinesiophobia. No association was found between pain intensity and Kinesiophobia.
Conclusion: Kinesiophobia plays an important role in explaining pain and disability among people with low back pain. Therefore, it seems appropriate to document the level of Kinesiophobia in clinical settings to acknowledge the barriers that can affect the patient’s conformity towards a recovery.

Key words: Kinesiophobia, chronic low back pain, fear.
