Work Conditioning is a work related, intensive, goal-oriented treatment program specifically designed to restore an individual's systemic, neuromusculoskeletal and cardiopulmonary functions. Our Work Conditioning program helps restore the injured employee's physical capacity and function ready for their return for work.
It is important to return the injured worker back to the workplace promptly to maximize coping skills and functional capacity and return to a normal activity level.
Promotion Physical Therapy's overall goal with Work Conditioning is to shorten the time frame from onset injury to return to the work force. With our specialized physical therapists, a patient has the possibility of achieving effective outcomes due to the immediate intervention following an injury.
Injured workers benefit from physical therapy services from the onset of injury through returning back to work. Early physical therapy intervention will help with early motion, reducing pain and swelling, and reinforce a healthy positive attitude to an early return to work. Many injured workers who receive appropriate early care by our fellowship trained physical therapists return to their job without additional rehabilitation services. Modified work arrangements can also be very productive in maintaining the injured workers attitude.
If you sustain an injury at work that makes you unable to perform your job, your employer will place you on a workers' compensation program. Initially, you may have physician-directed rest and time off from work. However, as you recover, you may require work hardening physical therapy to restore your physical strength and facilitate your safe, effective return to work. Our physical therapists are here to help you achieve these goals safely.
