Did you know that…..
many patients with recurrent or chronic physical disorders have depression ?
The patient has low mood, sense of helplessness, sluggishness, the level of productivity is reduced, etc.
This depression frequently aggravates the disability. Thus it sets up a vicious circle.
In these cases it is important that patients receive psychological treatment in addition to treatment for physical illness.
