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
