Progressive Goal Attainment Program (PGAP)
PGAP is a standardized ten (10)-week intervention program whose goal is to maximize the rate of progress in rehabilitation and reduce the probability of the development of chronicity. PGAP is a suitable intervention for individuals with pain-related limitations who are in need of an active mobilization intervention and for whom psycho-social issues such as fear of re-injury or pessimistic outlook are considered to be important contributors to disability. PGAP focuses on disability reduction as opposed to pain reduction.
WHEN TO REFER:
From 6 weeks post injury onward. Remember that an important factor in successful rehabilitation outcomes is early intervention.
CAN PARTICIPATION IN PGAP OCCUR AT THE SAME TIME AS OTHER TREATMENTS ARE OCCURRING?
Yes; in fact, PGAP will increase the successful treatment outcomes.
DOES PGAP ASSIST CLIENTS IN RETURNING TO WORK?
Yes; PGAP’S return to work outcomes are 65-75%.
HOW DO WE ACCESS PGAP?
Call us !!! We will assess your client. If the assessment shows that intervention is appropriate, we will contact you to receive approval. Reports will be provided after the fifth (5th) session and at the termination of the PGAP program.
We are very excited to now being able to offer the Progressive Goal Attainment Program. The Progressive Goal Attainment Program (PGAP) is the first disability prevention program specifically designed to target psychosocial risk factors for pain and disability.
PGAP is a 10-week activity mobilization program that has been tailored to meet the rehabilitation needs of individuals who are struggling to overcome the challenges associated with a wide range of persistent pain conditions.
PGAP is suitable for clients who are suffering from a persistent pain condition, and for whom pain symptoms and psychosocial factors are significant barriers to rehabilitation progress. PGAP has produced positive results for individuals suffering from chronic musculoskeletal conditions, whiplash, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
