급성 근육기인성 요배부 통증환자에 대한 간이정신진단검사를 통한 고찰
Objectives : The causative pathology of acute muscular pain cannot be defined in many patients. To evaluate the relations between mental state and acute muscular pain patients, the author surveyed symptom check list-90-Revision(SCL-90-R) in patients with acute muscular pain. Materials and Methods : From November 2004 to June 2005, a questionnaire including SCL-90-R was given to patients(52 persons) who visited our department for acute(<7days)muscular pain of neck(22 persons) or low back(30 persons). Fifty two patients(30 male, 22 female) completed SCL-90-R Results : 1. Mean values of T-scores on all 9 basic scales in the patients groups were within normal range. but T-scores SOM in the patients groups were significantly very higher than those in Normal groups(p<0.01). 2. The T-scores of SOM In low back pain patients were significantly higher than those in Normal groups(p<0.05). 3. There was no significant difference in all scales between acute muscular pain and L-spine HIVD patients groups. 4. There was no significant difference in all scales between acute muscular pain and general back pain patients groups. 5. There was no significant difference in all scales between male and female in the patients groups. Conclusion : It is concerned between T-scores on all 9 bas κ scales of SCL-90-R and acute muscular pain. Especially acute muscular pain of back has a relation to somatization of T-scores on all 9 basic scales of SCL-90-R.
