dc.description.abstractPhysiotherapists are encouraged to assess psychological symptoms in patients with musculoskeletal pain. Clinical Practice Guidelines recommend that patients who score above recommended cut-off scores on various psychological measures (e.g., depression and anxiety) might be referred to a psychologist for additional treatment (SIRA, 2014). Some patients with musculoskeletal pain may indeed present with a psychopathology such as severe anxiety and depression and these patients certainly need referral to a mental health care provider. However, in many cases, patients with musculoskeletal pain present with a range of psychological symptoms or emotions which may simply be natural responses to a physical injury and/or to the persistent pain that they are experiencing in their daily life (e.g., worry about their recovery and the impact that the injury may have on their future, loss of interest or enjoyment in engaging in activities due to pain, having difficulty with concentration and feeling irritable).
