DOI : 10.30621/jbachs.2020.1230 Objectives: Chronic neck pain is one of the most common musculoskeletal diseases. This pain may negatively affect the quality of sleep, quality of life, and psychological status of individuals. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between pain level and quality of life, quality of sleep, and psychological status in patients with chronic neck pain.

Materials And Methods: Seventy-three female (n=56) and male (n=17) patients (mean age 47.04±13.54 years) with chronic neck pain were included in the study. Pain severity was evaluated by McGill Melzack Pain Questionnaire (MMPQ), quality of sleep was evaluated by Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI), quality of life was evaluated by Short Form-36 (SF-36), depression level was evaluated by Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), and anxiety level was evaluated by Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI).

Results: The pain level score of the patients was found 32.12±16.86; sleep quality score was severe (7.24±3.11); SF-36 physical function component score was low (71.23±20.52); SF-36 pain component score was low (57.32±17.30); depression and anxiety level scores were mild (10.50±7.73, 15.00±10.14, respectively). There was a negative correlation between the level of pain of patients and sleep quality and a positive correlation between the level of pain of patients and SF-36 pain component score and anxiety level.

Conclusion: It is thought that sleep quality, quality of life, and anxiety management should be taken into consideration during the rehabilitation of patients with chronic neck pain. Keywords : pain, quality of life, quality of sleep, anxiety
