Therapists Maximize a Patient’s Capacity to Return to Work
Work conditioning is an intensive, work-related, goal-oriented program that involves physical conditioning and job simulation tasks to help the injured worker regain optimal function and return to work. This program addresses improvement in neuromuscular, cardiopulmonary, and musculoskeletal functions. It may also address reasonable accommodations for the worker and adaptations for the work environment. Work conditioning is typically provided in one-hour units, 2-8 hours per day for up to 8 weeks.
