In a prospective observational study (N = 97) we examined the changes in the SOC score after a surgical intervention for lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) and the factors associated with low and high SOC scores. Logistic regression analyses were used to investigate the predictors for the lowest SOC tertile. The post-surgical recovery among the low SOC group halted on three-month follow-up, whereas in the high SOC group a steady improvement was detected up to one year postoperatively. Preoperative and postoperative depressive symptoms were highly pertinent to the SOC of LSS patients, both as an indicator and a predictor of a low one-year SOC.
