Howard Rombom, PhD

Psychologist

Professional statement

The focus of the Behavioral Medicine Associates program of care is on the needs of the injured worker. Workers who have been traumatized by a workplace incident require behavioral care to help them process the event, develop coping skills and insight in order to return to work. Programs of pain management and lifestyle adjustment enable patients to return to work sooner, with less disability. It is well documented that ongoing, chronic pain results in significant psychological and behavioral dysfunction. Workers injured on the job who experience persistent pain require direct behavioral intervention. The impact of being out of work, losing one's identity, and coping with the results of a physical injury can be devastating. With treatment, workers can learn specific skills to cope with pain and to develop the skills necessary to adapt to their injuries. Treatment enables workers to develop the "emotional muscle" necessary to rehabilitate and return to a productive life. It would be difficult to conceive of a physical injury in which there was not psychological sequella. Aside from the pain and limitations imposed by the injury, the patient is confronted with financial, occupational, family, parenting, and social limitations that must be assessed, quantified, reported and treated. Helping an injured man or woman return to work, enabling them to maintain their dignity and sense of self-respect is one of our most important missions.
