Anum Mohiuddin*

The main objective of this study was to determine the relationship between kinesiophobia and pain (generally and in the feet), foot function, and disease activity in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). A total of 124 interviews were conducted with RA participants. Participants were recruited from the Virgen de las Nieves de Granada University Hospital in Spain. Participants completed the following questionnaires during their rheumatologist. The Foot Function Index (FFI), the Tampa Scale for agoraphobia (TSK-11) and the Foot Pain Visual Analogue Scale (VAS Pain). In addition, the Simplified Disease Activity Index (SDAI) was used to measure disease activity. Were obtained between the variables TSK-11 and VAS (associated with general pain or leg pain) and FFI (in its three sub-ranges). ). In addition, a negative correlation between TSK-11 and educational attainment was demonstrated. This study provides information on the relationship between foot function and pain with varying degrees of agoraphobia in patients with RA. In addition, the patient's educational history is considered to be a predictor of whether the patient has kinesiophobia.
