Abstract: ear of movement or kinesiophobia is a health problem related to an irrational fear of physical movement and fatigue that can lead to a limitation of functional capacity and a decrease in daily physical activity. Thus, the purpose of this study was to test the level of kinesiophobia in people with multiple sclerosis and compare it with a group of healthy people. The findings of this research support evidence that kinesiophobia is higher in people with multiple sclerosis than in a healthy control group. Therefore, people with multiple sclerosis should be evaluated and monitored to plan the treatment and preventive care activities of a multidisciplinary health team (podiatrists, physiotherapists, nurses, physicians, occupational therapists) in the attempt to improve their quality of life, autonomy, and wellbeing.
