Functional Restoration

Inland Functional Restoration

Inland Functional Restoration offers a comprehensive, interdisciplinary program designed to assist injured workers, correct disability in patients and reduce the chance that the injured worker will be able to return to work and/or to a productive life. Our approach integrates medically directed physical therapy, occupational therapy, mind-body medicine, psychotherapy and vocational rehabilitation.

When pain medications, injections, conventional physical therapy, or orthopedic surgery fail to provide sustained relief from chronic pain, patients often feel stuck and overwhelmed. Activities become severely limited and physical condition deteriorates. Feelings of frustration and helplessness often give rise to depression, anger, and worry. A vicious circle of pain, physical de-conditioning and depression may spiral out of control. These patients often feel progressively worse and more disabled. They, their family, their physicians, employers and insurance providers can feel at a loss of what to do next.

Intensive multidisciplinary rehabilitation with functional restoration is demonstrated to be more effective in improving pain tolerance and function than outpatient non-multidisciplinary rehabilitation. Patients who have failed multiple therapies, have changed physicians in search of an answer, who continually receive higher and higher amounts of narcotic medications, have lost hope, are depressed, angry and isolated are considered suitable candidates for an interdisciplinary program.

Inland Functional Restoration's program is a 6-week treatment program designed for the chronic pain patient who has not achieved sustained relief with standard levels of care. Participants meet 5 days a week, 6 hours each day for concentrated physical therapy, medical treatment and counseling.

Patients support their fellow FRP program participants

The FRP does not focus on pain elimination. Instead, the program directs patients away from further ineffective medical treatments to approach that emphasizes coping skills and improved physical function, emotional state, and quality of life. 

If your injured patients have failed conventional treatments and fallen into a chronic pain cycle, they may need early intervention and to be referred to a proper multidisciplinary functional restoration program.
