Work Conditioning

Our Work Conditioning programs are realistic, individual & really work.

Program Outline

The injured worker will be thoroughly assessed for residual clinical problems and for functional ability. This will be followed by a job analysis including a work site visit if necessary. The subsequent problems and shortfalls will form the main part of the client’s functional goals. The atmosphere is very supportive, positive, and optimistic and encourages maximum effort. There will be on-going progress monitoring with any changes in return-to-work status/ plan being available for the sponsor.
