Work Conditioning Programs

With the primary goal of helping workers return to employment, we strive to aid our injured clients in meeting established short-term and long-term goals. For clients unable to return to work due to remaining functional deficits or de-conditioning, we offer higher level therapeutic intervention. Our work hardening programs are individually tailored to each client and are full body intensive. Our programs focus on work simulation activities which prepare the injured worker to return to their job and the many duties that encompasses. Work Hardening addresses issues of productivity, safety, physical tolerances and worker behaviors. The primary objective of the Work Conditioning Program is to restore physical capacity and function, enabling the injured worker to return to his or her pre-injury job.
