Patients with many disabilities report problems sleeping, but specific sleep disorders are often not diagnosed. Because sleep affects many physiological and behavioral parameters–depression, anxiety, pain, cancer, cardiovascular changes, immune function– sleep disorders should be diagnosed and appropriately treated to maximize benefit of rehabilitation. Research is needed on ways to best approach this complexity in the context of medical rehabilitation for a primary, non-sleep disorder.
