Full Pain Program

 The Full Pain Program (FPP) is a five week, intensive group program for chronic pain management which includes:

  • Comprehensive evaluation
  • Behavioral pain management
  • Psychological treatment
  • Medical management
  • Occupational therapy 
  • Physical therapy
  • Work/Functional reconditioning

Beyond the group setting, the treatment team meets and establishes individualized strategies for each patient.  Many stratgies are introduced on how to the manage pain outside of medications. One concept that is integral to the Full Pain Program is:

Behavioral Pain Management

Chronic or acute pain is not just a physical problem. Pain often disrupts all facets of a patient’s life, causing relationship problems, financial stresses and feelings of depression, anxiety, anger and guilt. These factors may increase a patient’s focus on pain, causing them to experience pain even after all appropriate medical interventions have been completed.

Fortunately, this cycle can be broken with behavioral intervention. By addressing the patient’s emotions, we can help patients return to their normal level of function. Behavioral interventions include:

  • Psychological testing and evaluation
  • Counseling and psychotherapy
  • Biofeedback

The five week multidisciplinary treatment program, addresses pain from multiple fronts, giving patients their best chance of recovery.
