Abstract: Training preferences and motivation for rehabilitation in patients with neck pain. Written by Jonas Verbrugghe and Bert Cuyvers. Abstract Aim: The aim of this investigation is the inventory of training preferences and motives for motor rehabilitation of patients with neck pain. The second aim of this study is to evaluate to which extent patients with neck pain are familiar with the use of technologies. Methods: Semi-structured interviews were conducted based on the Neck Disability Index (NDI) and questions concerning technology use were inventoried. The technologies that were examined were: PC/laptop, tablet, smartphone, mobile phone, MP3 player. Results: Nineteen patients with neck pain (4 male/15 female) have participated in this study. The skills these patients prefer to train on most are: lifting (household and work), driving a car, sitting, walking and ironing. The primary listed training preferences are related to household or work related activities. The motivation of patients for training on these skills pertains to: being fit for work (financial drive & participation in society), parenthood, partnership, hobby, household and personal health. Conclusions: Patients with neck pain prefer to train on exercises that support the improvement of everyday life skills at work or during household activities, such as lifting and (work activities while) sitting. They have adopted the use of technologies in their professional and personal life, which lowers the threshold for the adoption of rehabilitation technologies.
