Return to Work Programs
(patient/employee has a job to return to)

Work Conditioning Program

Work conditioning is an intensive, work related, goal oriented conditioning program designed specifically to restore systemic neuromusculoskeletal functions (e.g., joint integrity and mobility, muscle performance (including strength, power, and endurance), motor function (motor control and motor learning), range of motion, (including muscle length), and cardiovascular/pulmonary functions (e.g. aerobic capacity/endurance, circulation, and ventilation and respiration/gas exchange). The objective of the work conditioning program is to restore physical capacity and function to enable the patient/client to return to work.

Interdisciplinary Work Hardening Program

Work Hardening is a highly structured, goal oriented, individualized treatment program designed to maximize the individual’s ability to return to work. Work Hardening programs, which are interdisciplinary in nature, use real or simulated work activities in conjunction with conditioning tasks that are graded to progressively improve the biomechanical, neuromuscular, cardiovascular/metabolic, and psychosocial functions of the individual. Work hardening provides a transition between acute care and return to work while addressing the issues of productivity, safety, physical tolerances, and work behaviors.

Tertiary Care Programs
(for cases where all medical care has been exhausted)

Interdisciplinary Chronic Pain Program

Chronic Pain is a psychobehavioral-social disorder where pain and suffering become the central focus for the patient/worker. It can define their complete existence. Chronic Pain can manifest alongside marginal pathological findings and may be devoid of objectifiable measurement. As a result of an inadequate clinical response to standard/routine medical treatment to address the pain cycle, the patient-worker can become depressed, anxious, fearful, and mentally distressed. This creates a real, definable medical condition where they are unable to function effectively within a normal work setting. For the injured worker the inability to fully attend to essential personal needs creates tangible barriers that prevent productive lifestyle reintegration. If not successfully identified and treated, Chronic Pain becomes a complex and multifactorial disorder. As with any disorder of this magnitude, a specific treatment methodology that will address the unique needs of the languishing patient/worker is needed.
