Why in my orthopedic dr notes, does the dr say "8 yr of depression which is important"? Do dr's try to link even ortho maladies to psychology origin

Why in my orthopedic dr notes, does the dr say "8 yr of depression which is important"? Do dr's try to link even ortho maladies to psychology origin

Origins vs component: If your doctor is taking a comprehensive history, all aspects of your life matter -- including your level of depression. This doesn't mean doctors believe depression to be the origin of an orthopedic complaint. I agree with others who've mentioned the relationship between pain and depression. Also depression can affect recovery ; healing from surgery, as well as desire to participate in pt, etc. ...Read more
