Program Process

  • Once a patient is a candidate and or referred to the Functional Restoration Program/Function Intervention Program a (MDE) Multi-Discipline Evaluation is performed by our team, which includes a (Physician, Psychologist, and Exercise Physiologist).
  • The Multi-Disciplinary Team meets to discuss each patient.
  • The Team meets with each patient to engage them in the results to determine the best treatment option for each patient.
  • The patient is then scheduled to meet with the team to discuss evaluation results and treatment recommendations.
  • If the treatment team feels that the patient is appropriate for Functional Restoration, and the patient agrees, patient will be enrolled in the Functional Restoration Program.
