We help restore function to patients suffering from chronic pain when surgery and medication are not effective or viable options. Our goal is to help patients cope with pain and return to work.

Who is the ideal candidate for the functional restoration program?

A functional restoration program helps people with chronic pain by restoring their function and improving their overall wellness. It is a holistic approach that does not rely on surgery or medication alone. The program includes various interventions and strategies to manage pain, enhance coping skills, and optimize medication. Patients can achieve significant improvements in their quality of life and return to work through functional restoration.

Experience lasting relief, improved functionality, and a renewed sense of purpose as you regain control of your life. 

How does FRP work?

Functional restoration programs work by bringing together healthcare professionals from various disciplines, such as doctors, psychologists, and alternative medicine practitioners.  The program may include physical therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, stress reduction techniques, and other interventions that address each patient’s unique needs. By taking a holistic approach, functional restoration programs can help patients achieve lasting pain relief and restore their ability to engage in daily activities.
