Collapse abstract
Kinesiophobia (KP) is defined as an excessive, irrational, and debilitating fear of physical movement and activity resulting from a feeling of vulnerability to painful injury or re-injury. The purpose of this pilot study is to develop and determine the validity and reliability of a modified version of the TSK-Heart for adolescents (TSK-Heart-A) with cardiac arrhythmia disorders (CArD). Our aims are as follows: Aim 1: To establish content and face validity of the TSK-Heart-A. Aim 2: To provisionally establish construct and criterion validity of the TSK-Heart-A. Aim 3: To determine internal and test-retest reliability of the TSK-Heart-A. We hypothesize that, following establishment of face and content validity, the TSK-Heart-A will be associated with depression, anxiety, quality of life (QOL), physical activity (PA), and PA self-efficacy in adolescents with CArD. We also hypothesize that the TSK-Heart-A will have adequate internal and test-retest reliability.
