Patients with versus without psychological disorders in orthopedic rehabilitation

, : Patients with versus without psychological disorders in orthopedic rehabilitation. Schmerz 22(1): 67-74

In this study it was examined whether orthopedic rehabilitants with versus without a comorbid mental disorder profit from inpatient orthopedic rehabilitation to the same degree. It was also investigated whether there were differential treatment effects between the traditional and behavioral-medical rehabilitation approaches. Questionnaires which assess pain-specific and associated variables were issued to a total of 361 patients on admission and discharge from rehabilitation. In some aspects patients with a mental disorder benefited more from the treatment than patients without comorbidities. Differential treatment effects were found only in patients with a mental disorder and improvements were higher in the behavioral-medical than in the traditional rehabilitation approaches. Psychological interventions in the inpatient orthopedic rehabilitation are recommended in order to adequately deal with the higher rate of persons with comorbid mental disorders.
