Human Rehabilitation Framework (HRF) Overview

  • The world’s first biopsychosocial process-based approach to rehabilitation, accessible to all disciplines for transdisciplinary care delivery.
  • Incorporates Network Theory and Applied Evolutionary Science, enabling individualized functional analysis. This approach moves beyond traditional methods of stratification, grouping, and categorization, addressing the non-ergodic nature of human problems rather than relying on ergodic statistical organization.
  • Advances Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) by integrating scientific evidence, clinical practice, and personalized care. It further promotes the evolution of rehabilitation towards Precision Medicine and the Value Based Care Model.
  • Revolutionizes diagnostic and intervention methods by shifting from differential diagnosis and traditional Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs), Clinical Prediction Rules (CPRs), and Clinical Pathways to a process-based approach.
  • Adopts adaptive strategies to manage complexity, leveraging technological (including psycho-technological) advancements to enhance efficiency. Process-based interventions offer transdiagnostic effects through multi-dimensional and multi-level interactions.
  • Effectively addresses the key criticisms of the Biopsychosocial (BPS) Model, paving the way for a more comprehensive and integrative approach to rehabilitation.
  • Future-proofs rehabilitation practices by shifting the research focus from group-level (nomothetic) analysis to individual-level (idiographic) analysis. It is fully prepared to adopt idionomic research methods and advanced statistical methodologies, advancing the fields of Biomedicine and Psychological research.

SPINAL DEGENERATION SOUNDS SCARY BUT IT’S JUST A TECHNICAL WORD FOR NORMAL AGING! The spine begins to undergo completely normal, age-related changes at around age 13, and by our 40’s, our spine has already gone through a LOT of changes that we may not even be aware of. Normal age-related…

Stepping Back Part II

In Part I of this series, I discussed the limitations that exist with our current beliefs and theories we hold when it comes to dealing with pain. For most of us, this involves having theories rooted in a mechanistic worldview believing that our bodies are like a machine and can be fixed…
