Healthcare Provider Advice to Engage in Walking Regimens and Adherence in Women With Fibromyalgia

Healthcare Provider Advice to Engage in Walking Regimens and Adherence in Women With Fibromyalgia Abstract Purpose The aim of the study was to analyze the profile of fibromyalgia patients receiving medical advice to walk and who complied with the advice according to a specific clinical pattern. A further aim has been to analyze the elements that increase adherence to walking. Design A cross-sectional study with 920 women with fibromyalgia. Methods Sociodemographic and clinical variables, walking behavior, and medical advice to walk were assessed. Findings and Conclusions Patients who adhere to walking have a lower likelihood of being tired. Regular walkers (patients who walk according to a specific clinical pattern) have a lower likelihood of comorbidity. Patients who receive medical advice to walk are more likely to walk more than 30 minutes and to take a break between bouts. Clinical Relevance Nurses caring for people with fibromyalgia should include strategies to promote walking, especially in patients with low adherence profiles, paying attention to all elements of behavior. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Rehabilitation Nursing Wolters Kluwer Health
