This review examines the role of fear and avoidance in chronic pain, focusing in particular on their role in activity limitation. It examines the existing fear-avoidance models, in particular Vlaeyen and Linton's (2000) model, it reviews the evidence for this model, and considers it in the context of models of fear and avoidance in other psychological disorders. Evidence is reviewed for other factors which contribute to activity limitation in chronic pain. In the context of this evidence, it is concluded that whilst there is much support for Vlaeyen and Linton's model, it may be useful to consider alternative models describing the process of activity limitation, and future research is proposed to support this.
