ABSTRACT

Metatarsal fracture is a common problem in the foot. After fracture patients may have problems such as pain and loss of function. The aim of this study is to examine the relationship between pain, functionality and quality of life in patients after metatarsal fracture. The study included 14 patients with a mean age of 40.71±13.58 years, whose primary fracture healing completed after metatarsal fractures. Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) for pain severity, Nottingham Health Profile (NHP) Questionnaire for quality of life and Foot Function Index (FFI) for foot functions were used in the evaluations, the relationships between them were examined with Spearman correlation analysis. According to VAS, the most pain was in activity (VAS activity: 5,01?2,02cm), the least pain was at rest (VAS rest: 1,22?0,35cm) in patients. In NHP the most pain (49,10?29,67 points) and the least social isolation (5,71?11,78 points) sub-parameters were affected. In FFI, more influence was observed in the disability subscale (44,75?24,89 points). Very strong relationship between FFI pain, NHP sleep and NHP total score (TS); very strong relationship between FFI disability and NHP pain, physical mobility (PM) and NHP TS; very strong relationship between FFI TS and NHP pain, PM and NHP TS was found (p<0,05). In conclusion we think that determination of the relationships between pain, functionality and quality of life in patients after metatarsal fractures will guide the planning of the physical therapy and rehabilitation program and establishing of long and short-term goals.
