Work Conditioning

OrthoSport Physical Therapy Work Conditioning Rehabilitation

Work conditioning is an individualized, work-oriented program designed to improve a client’s strength, endurance, movement and flexibility. The objective of the work-conditioning program is to restore the client’s function to enable a safe return to work. Work conditioning provides a transition between acute care and return to work while addressing motivation, safety and physical tolerances, as well as worker behaviors. Conditioning tasks are graded to advance the biomechanical, neuromuscular, cardiovascular/metabolic and psychosocial functions of the client in conjunction with participating in structured and graded job simulation or actual work tasks.
