Work conditioning and work hardening programs are work-related intensive, goal-oriented treatment programs that are designed to restore physical capabilities and function in order to facilitate a client’s return to work.
At MSI, our staff of highly trained physical therapists perform a thorough evaluation on every client. This evaluation looks at a client’s range of motion, strength, pain level and function. The client’s job demands are obtained and a baseline functional examination is performed. Once the initial assessment is performed, an individualized program is established for the client.
This program includes specific work-related activities, strengthening exercises, flexibility exercises, aerobic and endurance exercises, ergonomic training, and any other functional activities necessary for a safe return to work.
