Aim To translate the fear-avoidance belief questionnaire and explore the reliability of the Chinese version of the fear-avoidance belief questionnaire(CFABQ) for evaluating patients with low back pain.Method To develop the CFABQ,the English FABQ was translated into Chinese.The repeatability of the CFABQ was evaluated in 34 inpatients.These patients were examined two times using the CFABQ in two days.The validity of the CFABQ was evaluated in 160patients,including 34 inpatients and 126 outpatinets who consulted a rehabilitation physician by CFABQ,CODI,NRS and SF-36.The Spearman correlation was calculated between CFABQ and other scales.Result The CFABQ shows good repeatability(r=0.805(male),r=0.815(female),P0.01).Spearman's correlation coefficients between two sub-scales of CFABQ and NRS were 0.210(P0.01),0.192(P0.05);and CODI were 0.420(P0.01),0.351(P0.01);and SF-36(physical)were-0.268(P0.01),-0.173(P0.01);and SF-36(mental)were-0.154(P0.05),-0.303(P0.01).Conclusion The CFABQ has superior repeatability and validity.It is equivalent to the English FABQ and be used to assess the disabilities in patients with low back pain.
