Evaluation of low back pain (LBP) requires a condition specific disability questionnaire along with pain and satisfaction measure such as self-assessment pain scales. Dallas Pain Questionnaire (DPQ) is a 16-item visual analog scale, developed for evaluating patient's cognitions about the percentage that chronic pain affects four aspects of the subject's lives. It's easy to understand; can be answered in 3-5 min and can be scored in <1 min. This reliability and validation study offers health-care providers an opportunity to utilize this distinct questionnaire in Turkish population with back pain. The objectives are translation of Dallas questionnaire from English to Turkish language and to perform validation and reliability study.
