Sport à tout prix ? Dépendance à l’exercice physique et soins de santé primaires en contexte français : traduction française et validation de l’Exercise Addiction Inventory

Abstract : Practise regular physical activity is commonly accepted to be healthy. However, excessive exercise could induce both physical and psychological damages. Purpose: The aim of this study is the transcultural validation of the UK Exercise Addicition Inventory (EAI). Methods: First, we translated in French the EAI. Then we tested the psychometric properties using a prospective observational and multicentric study from October 2015 to February 2016. Results: Readable and understandable, the French form of the EAI has a good acceptability. It presents a very good internal reliability with a Cronbach’s alpha of 0.73. The temporal stability was acceptable. Responses to EAI from 275 regular recreational athletes were collected during general practitioner consultations. 17.45% of respondents scored more than 24 at the EAI. It means that they are at risk of exercise dependence. People who practise more than 5 hrs a week got a higher risk of exercise dependence than those who exercise less. Conclusion: The French form of EAI is a valid and reliable tool. It seems to be a useful screening tool for health practitioners. It might help them to easily identify people at risk of exercise dependence.
