I have tried to follow up on most of my pain control clients. After 8 years I stop. So, I've had those longitudinal studies...they are convenient in that they are not as subject to complications. That is, a depression or anxiety 'cure' might be complicate years later by a family death, job loss, birth, etc. Pain control cases are generally not so dependent upon environmental change and can be seen as 'cured' or not by the work that was orginally done. And, too, there is no ambiguity about it...the client has pain or does not. So the question is, did that work effectively make the desired change. As a result of that view, I've only tracked the pain cases.
