We have developed a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach to treating pain. A large part of our treatment plan is the Functional Restoration Program (FRP). The FRP is an intensive group process of education, psychology, and physical reconditioning through exercise and functional activities. Through this approach, all the pieces come to place. Patients with chronic pain regain control of their lives.
Our physicians and nurse practitioners also use conventional methods in treating people who don’t qualify for the FRP. However, no individual is treated without the education and strategies practiced in the FRP. Each person plays a key role in his/her own treatment plan. Thus the same philosophy in the FRP is carried throughout the practice, treat the pain, teach the person.
