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
- Over-reliance on medication for pain control
- Family disruption due to pain and functional limitations
