Work Conditioning

Work conditioning is an intensive, goal-oriented, and personalized treatment program designed to restore an individual’s neurological, musculoskeletal (strength, endurance, movement, flexibility, and coordination), and cardiopulmonary functions to allow a safe return to work. The objective of a Work Conditioning Program is to restore the clients’ physical capacity to perform job tasks considered essential to their field of work.

How long is the Program?

The program time line is four to five days per week for 3 week intervals. At the end of these intervals a re-assessment is completed to measure improvements. When the goals of the program have been reached, the individual is discharged.

What is involved in the program?

Strengthening and conditioning exercises are combined with job simulation activities to gradually increase strength and endurance. A daily circuit of these activities is developed by the therapist with input from the individual as well as information regarding the job in question. The goal of the circuit is to simulate the postures and activities required of the individual when at work. In addition, education and pain management skills are provided throughout the duration of the program.
