Work Conditioning Program
A work conditioning Program is a rehabilitation program designed to assist individuals who have sustained musculoskeletal injuries in achieving a safe and sustainable return to work. The conditioning program is an individualized program that is involves education, injury-specific strengthening, cardiovascular and flexibility training, as well as, focused on functional restoration and work-simulated activities.
Work conditioning programs provide a transition between acute care and gradual return to work while addressing the issue of productivity, safety, physical tolerances and work behaviors. Programs use conditioning tasks that are graded to progressively improve the function of the individual in conjunction with real or simulated work activities.
