Objectives: This study was planned to evaluate physical activity, kinesiophobia, activities of daily life and quality of life in individuals with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) in different phenotypes.
Methods: A total of 163 individuals was included in the study. Individuals were divided into 4 groups according to respiratory distress and a control group was formed. Individual dyspnea levels were assessed with the Modified Medical Research Council Dyspnea Scale, physical activity levels with the International Physical Activity Questionnaire, kinesiophobia with the TAMPA Kinesiophobia Scale, and daily activities were assessed by the London Daily Life Chest Activity Scale. The quality of life was assessed by the Nottingham Health Profile and by the St. George's Respiratory Questionnaire.
The results: Physical activity score was the lowest in group D (p<0.05). The mean score of kinesophobia was highest in group D, the lowest in the control group (p<0.05), and there was no difference between group A, group B and group C (p>0.05). SGRQ(Symptoms) score was higher in group C and group D, lowest in the control group (p<0.05).
Conclusions: Individuals with COPD with different phenotypes have different physical activity and kinesophobia values. Symptoms of disease increased, dyspnea and kinesophobia findings increased and quality of life decreased.
