Background. The promotion of physical activity (PA) is widely recognized as a major component of the prevention and management of several chronic diseases. As experts in human movement, physical therapists (PTs) are logical agents for the promotion of PA. Nevertheless, to date only few studies have investigated factors that influence PA promotion. Objectives. This study aimed to analyze the relationships between physical therapist knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs about PA, and their own selfreported PA promotion. Design. A sample of 185 PTs (male = 102) completed a cross-sectional survey through an online questionnaire. It included 25 multiple choice, Likert scale, and open-ended questions related to (1) personal characteristics, (2) knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs about PA, and (3) self-reported PA promotion by PTs. A deductive and inductive content analysis of the openended questions was also performed. Results. The questionnaire revealed that 99% of PTs agreed (n = 30) or completely agreed (n = 154) with the fact that they have to contribute to PA promotion in their patients. Significant correlations were found between physical therapist knowledge of the definition of PA, the benefits of PA, and their self-reported PA promotion (0.251, P < .01 and 0.180, P < .05, respectively). Additional multivariate analysis of the predictors of the self-reported PA promotion exposed significant univariate effects of knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs about PA (P < .01). Conclusion. Although the role of PTs in PA promotion seems evident, this survey underlines important misconceptions about PA within this group of health care professionals. Significant relationships between physical therapist knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs about PA and self reported promotion of PA highlight the need for physical therapist education programs to emphasize teaching the fundamentals of PA.

Study Design. Observational prospective study.Objective. Our objective was to assess the reliability and validity of the French version of the Keele STarT Back Screening Tool (SBST).Summary of Background Data. The SBST is a recently validated tool developed to identify subgroups of patients with low back pain (LBP) to guide early secondary prevention in primary care.Methods. Outpatients with LBP aged 18 years or more, attending a rehabilitation centre, a back school, a private physiotherapy unit or a fitness centre were included. Patients were assessed through the SBST, Roland-Morris Disability Questionnaire (RMDQ), Orebro Musculoskeletal Pain Screening Questionnaire (OMPSQ), Medical Outcomes Survey Short Form 36 (SF-36) questionnaire, and a pain visual analogic scale (VAS). Test-retest reliability was assessed with Kappa score or the intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC), internal consistency of the psychological subscale with the Cronbach alpha coefficient, construct validity with the Spearman's correlation coefficient, and floor and ceiling effects by percentage frequency of lowest or highest possible score achieved by respondents.Results. 108 patients with LBP were included. The test-retest reliability of the SBST total score was excellent with an ICC of 0.90 (0.81-0.95). The Cronbach alpha coefficient was 0.73 showing a good internal consistency for the psychological subscale. High Spearman's correlation coefficients of 0.74 between SBST and RMDQ, and 0.74 between the SBST and OMPSQ were observed. As expected, low to moderate correlations were observed between the SBST total score and some dissimilar measures of the SF-36. The lowest possible SBST score was observed for 8 patients (7.4%) whereas only three patients (2.8%) had the highest possible SBST score.Conclusion. The French version of the SBST is a reliable and valid questionnaire consistent with the original English version. Therefore, this new version may help French-speaking clinicians and scientists to stratify patients with LBP. [less ▲]

Introduction. Low back pain (LBP) is common among athletes and can be challenging for athletic trainers and therapists. Unfortunately, little is known about symptoms associated with functional lumbar segmental instability (FLSI) in athletes with LBP. Purpose. To determine subjective and objective symptoms associated with FLSI in athletes with LBP. Materials and Methods. We included 24 male athletes (12 soccer players and 12 tennis players) with non specific LBP mean (± standard deviation) pain intensity (0-100 Visual Analogue Scale) and disability (0-24 Roland-Disability questionnaire) scores reaching respectively 35 (±20) and 4 (±3). Athletes were submitted to a standardized anamnesis (including subjective identifiers of FLSI) and a clinical assessment conducted by a manual therapist who explored objective identifiers of FLSI. Results. According to the manual therapist, 12 athletes (6 tennis and 6 soccer players) presented a FLSI. The two groups did not differ regarding pain intensity and disability (P>0.05). However, athletes with FLSI appeared significantly younger than non FLSI athletes (P<0.01). Only three subjective identifiers appeared significantly related to FLSI in soccer and tennis players with LBP: “reports frequent episodes of muscle spasms”, “reports feelings of giving way or back giving out” and “Pain increased with sudden, trivial, or mild movements”. Regarding objective identifiers of FLSI, “positive prone instability test”, “aberrant movement during active and passive trunk flexion-extension“ and “poor lumbopelvic control” were significantly related to FLSI in these athletes. Conclusions. In this preliminary study, 50% of the athletes with LBP presented a FLSI. Some subjective and objective symptoms are significantly related to FLSI in soccer and tennis players. Implications. Athletes with LSI should be targeted for retraining to restore normal movement control. [less ▲]
