The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of anticipation of pain, sensory perception of pain and pain-related fear and disability beliefs on the gait characteristics of patients with chronic low back pain (CLBP). Thirty-one individuals with CLBP (16 men and 15 women) and 24 healthy individuals (11 men and 13 women) between 20 to 56 years of age participated in this study. Anticipated pain and the pain actually felt were measured with two separate visual analogue scales before and… 
The impact of chronic low back pain on physical performance, fear avoidance beliefs, and depressive symptoms: A comparative study on Turkish elderly population
TLDR
It was determined that performance level of elderly adults with back pain was related especially with depressive symptoms, and CLBP decreases physical performance, but increases fear avoidance behavior and depressive symptoms in elderly adults.
Pain-Related Fear Is Associated With Avoidance of Spinal Motion During Recovery From Low Back Pain
TLDR
To determine how the psychologic construct of pain-related fear maps to motor behavior in standardized reaching tasks, 36 participants with subacute low back pain were surveyed to assess the association between pain- related fear and joint motions.
Relationship between different measures of pain-related fear and physical capacity of the spine in patients with chronic low back pain.
TLDR
The present study shows that neither the task- specific tool (FVAS) nor the non task-specific questionnaires (TSK and PHODA) were significantly correlated to the spine tests in patients with CLBP, and suggests that one should not draw conclusions about physical capacity based on pain-related fear scores.
Nonspecific chronic low back pain and incapacity level: influence of walking performance
TLDR
Walking performance was not influenced by nonspecific chronic low back pain and by incapacity level, and walking speed was not correlated with pain intensity, with incapacitylevel or with the group.
The Relationship of Anticipated Pain and Fear Avoidance Beliefs to Outcome in Patients With Chronic Low Back Pain Who Are Not Receiving Workers’ Compensation
TLDR
In a sample of people from a Middle Eastern culture undergoing exercise intervention for LBP for which they are not receiving workers' compensation, the preintervention physical activity subscale of the FABQ is predictive of negative outcome when the observed scores are ≥29.
Empirically derived back pain subgroups differentiated walking performance, pain, and disability.
TLDR
Findings support the construct validity of this multidimensional subgrouping approach and longitudinal studies are needed to determine if the Maladaptive subgroup is predictive of poor outcomes, such as pain chronicity or persistent disability.
Physical activity and pain among patients with rheumatoid arthritis – A cognitive approach
The objective of this study was to describe relationships between physical activity and beliefs about pain, beliefs about fear-avoidance and health locus of control (HLoC), and to describe relations
The relationship between pain-related fear and lumbar flexion during natural recovery from low back pain
TLDR
It is suggested that pain-related fear results in avoidance behavior that specifically limits or restricts motion of the lumbar spine following an acute episode of back pain.
Effects of Fear of Movement on Spine Velocity and Acceleration After Recovery From Low Back Pain
TLDR
The present study provides important evidence that pain-related fear is a robust construct that clearly maps on to differences in peak velocity and acceleration of the lumbar spine even after resolution of back pain.
Pain, kinesiophobia and quality of life of low back pain patients
TLDR
Fear of movement, functional incapacity and pain observed in test group may have implications in the quality of life of low back pain patients who will be submitted to surgery and may be predictors for the incorporation of different strategies to contribute to more effective approaches.

The role of anticipation and fear of pain in the persistence of avoidance behavior in patients with chronic low back pain.
TLDR
The hypothesis that spinal physical capacity in chronicity is not explained solely by the sensory perception of pain is strongly supported.
Measures of pain and physical function in patients with low back pain
TLDR
The main aim of this study was to determine whether experimentally induced pain and simple tests of physical function can augment the assessment of patients with low back pain and the relationships between measures of pain and function in patients withLow back problems attending an outpatient physical therapy clinic.
Pain-related fear is more disabling than pain itself: evidence on the role of pain-related fear in chronic back pain disability
TLDR
It is found that the subscales of the FABQ and the TSK were superior in predicting self-reported disability and poor behavioral performance and the PASS appeared more strongly associated with pain catastrophizing and negative affect, and was less predictive of pain disability and behavioral performance.
Fear of movement/(re)injury in chronic low back pain and its relation to behavioral performance
TLDR
Findings demonstrated that the fear of movement/(re)injury is related to gender and compensation status, and more closely to measures of catastrophizing and depression, but in a much lesser degree to pain coping and pain intensity.
Prediction of pain in patients with chronic low back pain: effects of inaccurate prediction and pain-related anxiety.
TLDR
Findings demonstrated that predictions of pain were a function of discrepancies between previous predictions and experiences of pain, and patients reporting greater pain-related anxiety showed a tendency to overpredict new pain events, but corrected their predictions readily.
An objective approach to quantifying pain behavior and gait patterns in low back pain patients
TLDR
By combining objective measures of gait and motor pain behaviors, clinicians and researchers may be able to more objectively evaluate factors that may affect patient behavior and measure the effects of interventions designed to modify behavior.
Anthropometric Variables, Self‐efficacy Beliefs, and Pain and Disability Ratings on the Isokinetic Performance of Low Back Pain Patients
TLDR
Self-efficacy beliefs, i.e., the patient's belief in his or her capability to endure physical activities, was the most powerful predictor of isokinetic performance in low back pain patients.
The role of fear of movement/(re)injury in pain disability
TLDR
The discussion focuses on the clinical relevance of the fear-avoidance model in relation to risk assessment, assessment of functional capacity, and secondary prevention.
Do pain expectancies cause pain in chronic low back patients? A clinical investigation.
TLDR
No evidence was found for the thesis that pain expectancies generate increases in subjective pain experiences, and results are consistent with conditioning models which state that pain expectations are associated with a fear response and an urge to avoid the pain.
Biobehavioral factors affecting pain and disability in low back pain: mechanisms and assessment.
TLDR
Given the central role assumed by many physical therapists in the management of LBP, acknowledging and addressing these factors in clinical practice should assist in the prevention of chronic LBP and disability, as well as potentially improve physical therapy interventions and management.
