La participation aux loisirs des personnes souffrant de lombalgie chronique

Abstract : Introduction: Literature shows that chronic low back pain has an impact on participation inleisure activities.These activities are central to the concepts of occupational therapy.They are considered as an area of occupational performance.The objective of this study was therefore to understand how the occupational therapist can practically encourage participation in leisure activities with this population. Materials and Methods: A qualitative method was used. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with nine occupational therapists. Each interview was recorded and transcribed to in order to conduct a thematic analysis.The results were interpreted on the basis of a crosssectional reading of the findings and according to the conceptual framework. Results:The interviews highlighted a great diversity of care in multidisciplinary support, but also in the practice of the occupational therapists. Support for leisure activity was essentially based on real-life situations. Overall, the means provided by the institutions were insufficient in terms of equipment, workplaces and time. Discussion: This study revealed the importance of rehabilitation programs based on a biopsychosocial model that considers leisure activities as a part of the objectives. For the choice of the assessment tool, it did not appear to be determining / decisive. The absence of feedback from patients limited the conclusions of this study. To complete it, it would be necessary to interview the patients in order to see the effectiveness of the support provided by the occupational therapist.
