This survey aims to gain an insight and understanding into the elements that characterize physical activity levels in people with chronic pain. It aims to determine if there is a relationship between the characteristics of chronic pain and physical activity levels, and if there is a difference in the amount of self-reported physical activity and the recommended amount of physical activity. The survey consists of a number of different validated questionnaires taking about 35 minutes to complete in total. We are looking for approximately 250 individuals with a diagnosis of chronic pain to complete the survey. Participation will be completely anonymous.
This study will look to provide a background of information and the basis for a future, larger-scaled experimental study involving participants with and without chronic pain wearing an activity monitoring device to more accurately measure physical activity levels. Although this may not directly positively affect participants completing the survey, the information found and analyzed from this study will play a major role toward future improvements in the treatment of persons with chronic pain.
