Improved self-efficacy regarding exercise and more positive exercise expectations were linked with increased current and future levels of physical activity among patients aged 45 years or older with osteoarthritis-related pain, according to a recently published study.Researchers assessed 514 patients with knee pain due to osteoarthritis. Investigators found cross-sectional associations between self-efficacy for exercise (SEE) and physical activity scale for the elderly (PASE) (beta = 4.14), as well as associations between positive outcome expectations for exercise (POEE) and PASE (beta = 16.71), which were adjusted for sociodemographic and clinical covariates. In addition, there were longitudinal associations between baseline SEE and PASE at 3 months (beta = 4.95) and 6 months (beta = 3.71), as well as between baseline POEE and PASE at 3 months (beta = 34.55) and 6 months (beta = 25.74), which were adjusted for baseline PASE and intervention arm.NEXT ARTICLE
