 Aims and background: This study aimed to evaluate the structural model of the relationship between pain disposition, catastrophizing, fear of pain and pain adjustment in patients with Chronic musculoskeletal pain. Materials and Methods: 314 Patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain wete selected using convenience sampling method among clients of pain clinics in Isfahan, based on pain specialist diagnosis. They participated in the research by filling out six questionnaires: Chronic Pain Self-Efficacy Questionnaire(CPSEQ), Life-0rientation Questionnaire(LOQ), Conner-Davidson Resilience Scale(CDRS), Pain Catastrophizing Scale (PCS), Tampa Scale Kinesiophobia (TSK) and VanKroff Graded Chronic Pain Scale (CPG). Data was analyzed using structural equation modeling method. Findings: Pain disposition had a significant reverse effect on catastrophizing; besides catastrophizing had significant direct effects on fear of pain and the latter had the same effect on pain adjustment (P<0/001). Also the mediatory role of catastrophizing in relationship between disposition and fear of pain and the mediatory role of fear of pain in the relationship between catastrophizing and pain adjustment were supported. Conclusion: The results of this research show that pain disposition plays a role of Protection against catastrophizing, fear of pain, pain intensity and inability.
