NPR did a great piece on an integrated program that treats patients with chronic pain using exercise, nutrition and education. Sound familiar? The program is sponsored by Kaiser Permanente in response to the opioid epidemic and the growing concerns around using opiates as "front line" treatment for pain complaints. Restore Fx is proud to say that we have been providing this type of integrative care for the past 12 years! Listen to the podcast and we think you will see the similarities -- not only is their program interdisciplinary (as is ours) but it has all of the practitioners/healthcare providers in the same location functioning as a team (again, like ours!). Kudos to Kaiser for making this program available to its clients in Colorado. We hope that other insurance providers take note and start to offer this kind of care to their clients.
