Abstrakt

BackgroundMusculoskeletal pain is frequently occurring. In a recent Danish survey, about 50\% of responders reported symptoms from neck or back during the last 14 days. Musculoskeletal pain can lead to increased absenteeism and exclusion from the labor market. This study reports the effect of contact to a physician specialized in social medicine parallel to treatment of suspected spinal disc herniation on long term sick leave, self-rated health and mental resources.Methods
