Abstract

We reviewed the quality and acceptability of exercise adherence measures applied in published musculoskeletal studies to inform recommendations for use in research and/or routine practice settings. A systematic review of measures was conducted in two phases. Study and measurement quality was assessed against recommended criteria. Phase one identified 313 articles, from which 41 reproducible measures were identified. Published evidence of measurement and practical properties for these measures (phase 2) was limited or unavailable, resulting in nine articles for just six measures: three clinician-reported and three patient-reported. Four measures were specific to the assessment of exercise adherence and two specific to physical activity. Significant methodological and quality issues were identified, making assessment recommendations difficult. The conceptual underpinning of exercise adherence is poorly defined. Future research should seek to engage collaboratively with relevant stakeholders to ensure that the way in which exercise adherence is assessed is high quality, relevant and acceptable.
