NCFRP Outcome Measures Study

At NCFRP, we understand that finding a good Functional Restoration Program is a challenge. It’s all about finding the right program with the best outcomes. In 2013, NCFRP conducted an Outcomes Measure Study across multiple dimensions of functionality, reduction of pain and opioid use, psychosocial/psychological functioning, return to work are only some of the data points that we measured. The results were remarkable.

Read the detailed report in our Outcome Measures Study.

Patients completing the Northern California Functional Restoration Program (NCFRP) evidence clinically-significant improvement across multiple dimensions of functionality, reduction of pain opioid use, and psychosocial/psychological functioning. For NCFRP participants that sought employment post-program, a significantly high percentage of them were successful.

Our outcomes measures studies evidence that individuals treated at NCFRP:

  • Significantly improve physical functioning
  • Improve emotional well-being; including depressive and anxiety-related symptoms
  • Improve experiential functioning: better participation in activities-of-daily living, greater participation in desired social activities, and greater quality of interactions with significant others
  • Have reduced reliance on opioid medications and other pain-related medications
  • Have significantly high return-to-work rate and adaptive changes to stationary/permanent status

Summary Highlights:

  • Permanent & Stationary Status: 96% of participants were Permanent & Stationary post-NCFRP
  • Reduction of Prescribed Opioid Dosage: 24% average reduction in opioid medication dosage post-NCFRP
  • Return-to-work Rate: 71% of those seeking to return to work were successful post-NCFRP
