Abstract

Background: Adolescents have a high prevalence of back problems. Some risk indicators are associated with sedentary lifestyle, the practice of inadequate physical activity, the physical contraindicated exercises, joint actions inadvisable, etc. For these reasons, there is a need to study the knowledge held by students about back health and sports to improve intervention programs and help them to improve their education and care of the back. Currently, there are no specific knowledge questionnaires on health and back care related to the practice of physical activity and exercise in adolescents. For these reasons, the aim of this study was to design and validate an assessment tool that measures such specific knowledge.
Methods: For this, the test-retest design was used with an interval of time of two weeks between each passes. The sample consisted of 230 students with a mean age of 15.31 (SD=1.52).
Results: The internal consistency of Cronbach’s alpha coefficient was 0.80. The intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) for average measurements was 0.80 with a significance of p<0.001. The t test for paired samples showed no statistically significant differences between the values of the first and second pass. Conclusion: The COSACUES-AEF (in spanish cuestionario sobre “Conocimientos sobre la Salud y Cuidados de la Espalda relacionados con la Actividad y Ejercicio físico”) is a valid and reliable tool to evaluate the level of specific knowledge about health and back care related to physical activity and exercise in adolescents. The tool will let to compare the specific knowledge with other variables like presence or absence of LBP.
