Physical therapy is necessary in the treatment of various diseases and gives good results if it is done neatly, but it may happen that patients have poorer therapeutic outcomes and persistent pains that can’t always be explained by disease itself, injuries or severity of disease and injury. Aim of this study was to consider the role of looming maladaptive style and anxiety sensitivity in the development of pain and various aspects of painful experience (fearavoidance beliefs, pain intensity, fear of pain, fear of movement) in persons involved in physical rehabilitation. For this purpose, the research was conducted in ZZFMR "Dr. Miroslav Zotović" on a sample of 100 participants of male and female gender with established chronic pain of different etiology. A questionnaire of looming maladaptive style, anxiety sensitivity index, visual-analogue scale of pain, a fear of pain questionnaire - III, a fearavoidance beliefs questionnaire and Tampa scale of kinesiophobia were used as applied instruments of research. The obtained results show that there was no expressed anxiety sensitivity and looming maladaptive style in the participants and it was not confirmed that gender as a moderating factor plays an important role in the various aspects of pain experience. Participants with postoperative and post-traumatic conditions identified a higher degree of belief in job injuries and kinesiophobia. Using anxiety sensitivity we can predict nearly 30% of kinesiophobia, while anxiety sensitivity and a looming maladaptive style together can predict 15% of medical pain fear, 13% fear of lesser pain and 17% fear of chronic pain. Data can be used in early identification of patients with various diseases that can cause permanent pain and disability in the long run, so that appropriate preventive psychological interventions can be initiated.
