Responsiveness of the Low Back Activity Confidence Scale in a subgroup of patients with lower back pain: preliminary analysis
Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy
Self-efficacy (SE) is emerging as an important predictor of clinical outcomes for individuals with lower back pain (LBP). SE’s specific nature necessitates similarly specific instruments for measurement. The Low Back Activity Confidence Scale (LoBACS) was constructed to assess SE for LBP-related function, self-regulation skills, and exercise management in patients with LBP. Its usefulness for patient evaluation remains unclear because its sensitivity to change is unknown. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to determine the magnitude of statistically and clinically significant change in LoBACS total score (LoBACStot)
