Work Conditioning Program
We offer a specialized work conditioning program for patients who were injured on the job or in an accident.
WHAT IS WORK CONDITIONING?
Work conditioning is a supervised physical strengthening program implemented by a Doctor of Physical Therapy. It is meant to help you rehab from the injury and improve your ability to perform specific occupational duties. Depending on your specific job demands, we develop a personalized program that helps you increased your physical capacity and ultimately return to work. Work conditioning sessions are completed at a frequency of 3-5 days per week.
WHO IS WORK CONDITONING FOR?
Work conditioning is for anyone who has been injured on the job or has experienced another accident/injury that is preventing you from working. If you are a patient with an open claim from a work related injury or other injury, work conditioning may be a good solution for you.
