KOL-Index: 53 BACKGROUND: The psychological flexibility model states that activity patterns are not deemed to be intrinsically functional or dysfunctional; it is considered that underlying factors, such as personal goals and contextual factors, are what will determine their effects on disability. Pain catastrophizing has frequently been associated with several important pain-related outcomes. Despite its ...

KOL-Index: 47 Physical activity and exercise are relevant behaviors for fibromyalgia health outcomes; however, patients have difficulties undertaking and maintaining an active lifestyle. With a cross-sectional design, this study explored the role of pain-related worrying and goal preferences in the walking persistence of women with fibromyalgia. The sample included 111 women who attended a tertiary health ...

KOL-Index: 47 OBJECTIVES: Avoidance, persistence, and pacing are activity patterns that have different adaptive effects in chronic pain patients. Some inconsistent findings have been explained from a contextual perspective that underlines the purpose of the activity. In this way, avoidance, persistence, and pacing are multidimensional constructs, nuanced by their goals. This multidimensionality has been ...

KOL-Index: 40 Being physically active has positive effects on fibromyalgia functioning. However, promoting an active lifestyle in these patients continues to be a relevant clinical challenge. Our aim was to test a motivational model to explain light (LPA) and moderate-vigorous physical activity (MVPA). A cross-sectional prospective study was conducted at a tertiary level of care. Participants completed ...

KOL-Index: 38 Pain catastrophizing and pain acceptance have been associated with functioning in fibromyalgia. In relation to activity patterns, pacing has been defined as a helpful pattern to regulate activities in the context of value-based goals, but results regarding whether it is adaptive or not are controversial. This study analyzes the moderating role of pain acceptance between pain catastrophizing ...

KOL-Index: 31 The fear-avoidance model provides an explanation for the development of chronic pain, including the role of perception (i.e. pain catastrophism) as an explanatory variable. Recent research has shown that the relationship between pain catastrophism and avoidance is influenced in turn by different psychological and contextual variables, highlighting the affective-motivational ones. From this ...

KOL-Index: 27 Fibromyalgia (FM) patients are known to be highly demanding of themselves in achieving goals. In fact, some authors suggest that perfectionism influences maladaptive coping regarding health and hinders routine tasks. Despite the evidence about the anxiety caused by this demanding pattern and the difficulty it creates in dealing with the conflict between goals, to date, there are no studies ...

KOL-Index: 27 Although fatigue usually goes unnoticed, it is a symptom that poses great challenges to patients with fibromyalgia and is a strong limitation. The aim of this study is to identify and describe the variables involved in fatigue in nine different situations of the Goal Pursuit Questionnaire (GPQ) that may occur in the daily lives of women with fibromyalgia, according to an ABC ...

KOL-Index: 24 The intrinsically adaptive or maladaptive nature of certain activity patterns in fibromyalgia (FM) has been put into question. The role of contextual factors related to their influence on functional limitation is required. Perfectionism complicates the ability to cope of these patients. The aim of the study has been to analyze the moderating role of perfectionism between activity patterns ...

KOL-Index: 24 BACKGROUND: Exercise and physical activity are an evidence-based practice for chronic pain. Health professionals need instruments to assess self-efficacy for this practice taking into account the specific barriers of patients with these health problems. PURPOSE: To develop and test the psychometric properties of a new self-efficacy scale for physical activity and walking exercise in patients ...
