Learn More About This Program


The Virtual Functional INtEgrative Restoration (FINER) Program is a unique, virtual pain program hosted and facilitated by Mass General Brigham/Spaulding Rehabilitation Network spine physicians, physical therapists and pain psychologists trained in chronic pain management. We are the providers who treat chronic pain daily. You will be able to access Epic-integrated virtual visit consultations with these providers, interdisciplinary group sessions to engage concepts and processes learned in workshops, and experience integrative mind-body classes with practitioners who have experience treating chronic pain. This program is completely virtual, using a HIPAA-compliant Zoom platform. 

FINER is a not-for-profit program for pain sufferers; participants may follow up with providers long-term for a more whole person, integrative pain care approach. Overcoming disability and suffering from chronic pain is difficult and takes work, but with team support, engagement and practice of pain coping strategies, change is always possible. 


To register for the FINER virtual pain program, you will first need to be referred by one of our Mass General Brigham-affiliated providers below, and have access to Epic-integrated Zoom virtual visits.
