CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY




How could psychology help with physical therapy: – Revive difference


Client’s overall mental well-being plays a vital role in injury recovery but is often ignored or overlooked. It is important to identify the psychological effects of injury to ensure that the patient receives the most comprehensive care. Often, recovery in chronic or severe injuries can last six to nine months even with the most advanced care. This lengthy recovery time can not only contribute to a significant loss in muscle, but a decline in a person’s mental well-being as well.
Throughout the healing process, this type of clients could largely benefit from a integrated psychology program that could help with depression, loss of motivation, fear or anxiety associated with injury, as well as teach proper goal setting which would encourage patients to maintain their physical exercise program.

Counselling Psychology

The most commonly reported psychological issues associated with athletic injury were anxiety and negative stressors. This information led to the use of a model to interpret how an athlete responds to injury. The integrated model of response describes the response to injury as being influenced by personal and situational factors which are then associated with the behavioral and emotional response of the athlete.
