A longitudinal cohort study (n=448) comparing functionally restored discectomy (n - 123) and fusion (n 101) workers compensation patients to matched, unoperated control patients (n=123 and n - 101, respectively).
To determine successful treatment outcomes uniquely important in a workers'compensation environment when spine surgery is combined with comprenensive tertiary rehabilitation, to optimize anatomic and social seaueiae. of Background Data.
Multiple recent studies confirm suboptimal socioeconomic outcomes for spinal surgery for degenerative conditions in a workers'compensation venue. in otner musculoskeletal regions, there is a clear relationship between the quality of post-surgical rehabilitation and the impact on disability, re current injury, and future nealth care use.
It is hypothe sized that poor surgical outcomes in compensation injuries may result from outmoded postoperative methods, rather than failures of patient selection or surgical technique.
No previous combination of surgery plus rehabilitation has been carefully evaluated with disabled workers undergoing sine surgery.
Functional restoration is an individualized medically directed. interdisciplinary program using quantitatively directed exercise progression, psychotherapeutic interventions, and monitoring of specific socioeconomic outcomes for chronically disabled workers. (...)
