Rehabilitation is a complex process that requires a combination of medical, technological, psychological and environmental variables to be successful. This study aimed to evaluate the role of psychological and environmental factors in the rehabilitation outcome. To address psychological factors that may lead to suboptimal post-operative rehabilitation or recovery, there are several intervention strategies available. Evaluators can use implementation frameworks to identify and report factors that affect the implementation of new complex rehabilitation interventions.
Psychological factors such as pain perception, compliance with rehabilitation and patient outcomes after common orthopedic surgeries, such as total joint arthroplasty, anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction and degenerative spine surgery disease, have a great influence on the success of rehabilitation. In addition to these factors, a good rehabilitation program should provide a clean and comfortable environment, a respectful and caring staff, and a reputation for providing high-quality medical care and staff. These factors are important indicators that your rehabilitation program can offer you everything you need to achieve your best level of personal success. Rehabilitation after major orthopedic surgery is a daunting and time-consuming task, and successful orthopedic outcomes often depend on good compliance and rehabilitation effort.
Psychological factors affecting compliance, rehabilitation effort, and pain perception also influence key outcome measures, including complication rates, symptom and function scores, and patient satisfaction.
