Psychiatric disorders

Psychiatric disorders have a negative impact on the quality of life as well as professional and social capabilities. The correct diagnosis followed by suitable treatment can cure the disorder or at least improve it.

There is a clear link between psychiatric disorders and pain syndromes. Around 40 to 50 percent of pain patients suffer from some form of depression while patients with depressive tendencies have an increased risk of suffering from a pain syndrome.

Proven successful approaches to treating mental disorders include psychosocial therapy or psychotherapy combined with medication.
