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.
