Fear Avoidance Beliefs Questionnaire For Behavior Pain

Fear avoidance beliefs questionnaire is to be prepared by physical therapists that provide physical cognitive mindfulness training to patients who experience negative pain that leads to behavior pain at work or home.  Patients with chronic pain will often avoid physical activities that may increase the pain, basic behavior of these patients is, they may get pain related fear in situation or movement, they try to avoid daily activates that may cause the pain.



The chronic pain in patients can be caused due to biological problems, social factors that are important in evaluating patience’s behavior and treating them with fear avoidance.

Example, if you have a severe muscle pain, then you might stop doing some activity that has caused the muscle pain, this will surely interfere with daily activates. This will create hyper vigilance, this is due to individuals focusing on particular bodily sensations, you are bond to experience the pain to greater degree.

Another good example of fear avoidance is: if your child has a hurt while playing, parents worry a lot and look for a good treatment that can reduce the hurt, they are concerned for days until the hurt is recovered. In this scenario both the child and parents are concentrating on the pain the hurt has caused. In this situation the pain increases as the child is over concentrating with emotions. The better way is to change the mindset, who do you do this, give a piece of candy to the child, he will forget about the pain. Take him to Zoo Park, something which helps the child from concentrating about the pain.

This same scenario employs to adults as well, if you have a chronic pain while doing an activity, you almost fear of it and keep concentrating for hours. This actually increases the pain.

Physical deconditioning, is a process where when a person stops using a muscle, it can lead to several other issues, as the muscles surrounding the joints can become useless. This leads to stress as you are afraid to use the muscle.

Fear avoidance belief is closely related to depression, increase pain, physical disability and long term sickness.
