Are you a SPARC Med candidate?

The typical candidate for the SPARC approach is someone who has undergone extensive medical and/or surgical treatment with only temporary or minimal improvement. Specific factors that make functional restoration an appropriate option include:

  • Significant deconditioning from diminished activity due to pain, fatigue or illness

  • Psychosocial factors such as depression or stress that exacerbate the pain

  • Sleep disturbance related to pain

  • Overreliance on medication for pain control

  • Family disruption due to pain and functional limitations
