When the job involves heavier loads or fast paced work, Work Conditioning is often recommended by the physician. A Work Conditioning program enables the injured worker to continually strengthen their body, and gradually progress their productivity and loads toward the critical job demands.
Doctors of Physical Therapy offers a comprehensive Work Conditioning program which incorporates stretching, strengthening, and cardiovascular exercises tailored to the worker’s deficits, and job simulation and functional circuits which mirror the job tasks. The therapist works closely with the injured worker in designing the program, and revises the program based on the worker’s response and progression.
Work Conditioning also offers a safe environment for the worker to practice ‘pacing’ and to modify their body mechanics and work methods to reduce exacerbations on the job site. Our goal is to restore the worker’s functional abilities, maximize endurance, and to return them to work safely.

My Doctor recommended DPT for my physical therapy and I have been very pleased with my care. Jen is a very skilled, experienced therapist and I especially appreciate her level of education and advanced certifications. Having a therapist with an advanced level of education was very important to me. I have individual attention from Jen throughout my therapy visits and she is developing an effective home exercise program that works for me. Schedule is easy and I am able to schedule appointments around my work and family obligations. Location is very good for me also. Would highly recommend DPT for therapy needs.
Jennifer has helped me with flexibility, strength, and endurance. The procedures she added for me to do at home will continue the progress. I suggest you give Doctors of Physical Therapy a call and visit when you need help. They listen, and they are the professionals.
The therapist did a great job from start to finish. I felt that they did an amazing job preparing me both physically and mentally to get back out on the field. Being an athlete, I think it's important to not only get back where you were... but exceed your expectations for recovery before you head back into competition. As a college athlete, I was constantly asking questions and asking for ways to continue to be pushed. My therapist was able to help rebuild my strength and reassure me mentally. They were also very accommodating when it came to scheduling, often staying later than needed in order to help me. Almost a year later after the injury, everything is going great. My experience at DPT has been really positive, I am grateful for the time and commitment they put into my recovery.
The staff was great at explaining the exercises and walking me through them. Klaudia, the Dr. of PT was amazing! She was very kind, a great communicator and pushed me to my limits to help speed up my healing process. She and the staff really had a great way of making me feel cared for and a part of the family. Their knowledge on my injury was critical in helping me do the best exercises to heal my injury in the safest, fastest manor.
Incredible and sensitive staff! I experienced great results for various feet problems!
After my injury, I wasn't sure I would be able to finish playing my senior year of soccer. DPT worked with me and my school schedule and my goals to get me back on the field faster than expected. I was able to play in the last tournament of the year, and that meant a lot to me. Thank you.
Having a Doctor of Physical Therapy working on my injury makes all the difference in the world. I feel as if I am healing so much faster with the hands on technical skill and knowledge of my therapist.
Brian has been an exceptional therapist. He is extremely knowledgable, inspires confidence in my recovery and has excellent manual skills.
Over the past several years, I have gone to several physical therapy clinics. At Doctors of Physical Therapy they created a program that was personalized for me. I received exercises and stretches to do at home, which really helped with my healing. I still do some of those exercises today as part of my normal workout routine. The staff was professional, friendly, and courteous to all of their patients. They were able to schedule appointment times that worked with my work schedule. Thank you for helping me get back up and running again!
Denise used something that I had never tried before at other PT clinics. She did dry kneading and it really helped. I couldn't believe how quickly it helped with my neck and back pain. Thank you Denise for all of your help!
