Investigation of the Relationship Between Pain, Depression and Kinesiophobia with Disability in Patient with Chronic Neck Pain
The factors that cause neck pain and increase or decrease the pain can vary widely, and the neck pain mechanism is not yet fully explained. So, when evaluating the patients with chronic neck pain (CNP), it should be evaluated not only for the individual's pain but also for the biopsychosocial model. It is known in recent years that; pathologies cause inadequacies, inadequacies cause functional limitations, and functional limitations cause disability. For this reason, besides the pain of the patients with CNP, it is important that they are evaluated in terms of their functional states. The level of disability generally increases in patients with CNP. In addition, CNP increases the tendency to depression and levels of kinesophobia of these patients. Factors such as depression and kinesiophobia can negatively affect the level of disability by reducing motivation of patients and participation in social life. There are many reasons that increase the level of disability in these patients. The aim of this study is to assess the relationship pain, depression and kinesophobia with level of disability in patients with CNP and to determine which parameter most important factor for disability.
