At NCFRP, we understand that finding the right Functional Restoration Program for your patient is a challenge. The MTUS/Chronic Pain Medical Treatment Guidelines recommends a Chronic Pain Program where there is access to programs with proven successful outcomes, for patients with conditions that put them at risk for delayed recovery. (MTUS, Page 30)

Our more than 13 years of experience in Functional Restoration treatment has allowed us to conduct a study over hundreds of patients to measure a variety of significant outcomes.

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 outcome 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
