What is a Functional Restoration Program?

A Functional Restoration Program (FRP) is a rehabilitation program for chronic pain sufferers.  This type of program aims to increase physical functioning, improve pain coping skills, and help facilitate the mending of the body as a whole.  Complete body wellness, both physical and mental, is a necessary part of chronic pain healing.

What exactly is chronic pain and how will this type of program help?  Chronic pain is a pain that lasts for an extended period of time, often for months or even years.  Pain is typically diagnosed as chronic if it lasts longer than 3-6 months.  Although this pain is recognized as a physical feeling, long term pain can begin to impact an individual’s mental and social health.  This where where an FRP is beneficial.  

Here at Recovia, we have taken the standard concept of an FRP and enhanced it. Dubbed a Functional Flex-care Program, we are an FRP that not only focuses on restoring an individual as a whole, but also proving program flexibility to specifically adjust treatment to each and every patient.  Our program focuses on five primary disciplines: Behavioral Medicine, Physical Therapy, Pain Medication Management, Interventional Pain Management, and Lifestyle Counseling.  Patients work with a highly skilled team of rehabilitation specialists who work together under one roof to lead them on a path to better health.  

This type of structure is built to accelerate patient healing and provide the tools needed from each area of care to learn how to become healthy biologically, psychologically, and socially.  While working on emotional health and wellness, patients also undergo physical therapy treatment simultaneously in an effort to strengthen the body physically. Additional treatments may include narcotic medication detox, yoga and stretching, breathing and stress management training, nutritional consulting, and vocational training.

Recovia is a functional flex-care program that aims to maximize recovery for individuals suffering from chronic pain, injury, or dependency.  The mission is to provide a compassionate, comprehensive, cost effective, and individualized functional rehabilitation program.  For more information, please contact us at 480-364-4009 or visit our information page.
