Abstract: An educational and exercise program to elderly with knee’s osteoarthritis: preliminary results Introdution: Cognitive and behavioral factors can cause worsening of symptoms in people with osteoarthritis. Anxiety, depression, pain catastrophizing and fear of movement can influence the way how individuals see their problem and how to act before him, affecting its functionality. Research question: Can a program that includes exercise and pain neurophysiology education change the perception of people with osteoarthritis about their condition and improve their functionality? Purpose: Evaluate the effect of an educational and exercises program in pain’s self-efficacy, fear of movement and beliefs about the disease in individuals with knee’s osteoarthritis. Methods: A exploratory, descriptive and longitudinal study with a sample 22 subjects with symptomatology of knee’s. The program with an educational and exercises component implemented twice a week, for 8 weeks. The scales Tampa Scale Kinesiophobia (TSK), Pain Self Efficacy Questionnaire (PSEQ) and 3 questions from the Brief Illness Perception Questionnaire (BIPQ) were evaluated in the 1st and 16th session. Results: Statistically differences were verified after the program for PSEQ (p=0,0099) TSK (p=0,002), control over the disease (p=0,037), and concern with the disease (p=0,004).In PSEQ nine participants that presented low pain’s self-efficacy change their profile to a high self-efficacy and in TSK four that presented a moderated and high level of fear of movement change their profile to a low fear. Conclusions: An educational program based on the neurophysiology of pain and exercise reveals improvement in pain’s self-efficacy, fear of movement and beliefs about the disease, as the control over the disease, the concern with the disease and the comprehension of the disease. Preliminary data indicate significant results in functional dimensions related to the educational component, which at the follow-up.
