Abstract
Objectives: To investigate: (i) changes in sick-leave benefits from 1
year prior to multimodal rehabilitation to 1 and 2 years after
rehabilitation; (ii) sex differences in sick leave; and (iii) the impact
of policy changes on sick leave.

Methods: All patients undergoing multimodal rehabilitation registered in
a national pain database for 2007–11 (n?=?7,297) were linked to the
Swedish Social Insurance Agency database. Sick leave was analysed in
3-month periods: T0: 1 year before rehabilitation; T1: before start; T2:
1 year after; and T3: 2 years after rehabilitation. Four sick-leave
benefit categories were constructed: no sick leave, part-time sick
leave, full-time sick leave, and... (More)

leave, full-time sick leave, and full-time permanent sick leave. The
individual change in sick-leave category at each time-period was
analysed.

Results: Sick-leave benefits increased from T0 to T1 (p?<0.001) and decreased from T1 to T3 (p?
Conclusion: Multimodal rehabilitation may positively influence
sick-leave benefits for patients with chronic pain, regardless of their
sick-leave situation, sex or policy changes. (Less)
