Workers who experience lost-time, limited duty, or symptoms in response to job tasks may benefit from work hardening physical therapy services.  Rendered in various phases of the injury healing process, physical therapy helps the injured worker return to safe and productive work.

The purpose of Work Conditioning and Work Hardening, as well as a combination of the two, Work Rehabilitation, is to help progress an injured worker’s tolerance of job or occupation-specific physical stresses.  Treatment should emphasize restoration of work-related function and reconditioning.

Work Conditioning Program

An intensive work-related, goal-oriented conditioning program designed to restore:

  • Multi-hour sessions up to 4 hours/day; 5 days/week; for 8 weeks
  • systemic neuromuscular functions (joint integrity and mobility)
  • muscle performance (strength, power, endurance)
  • motor function (motor control and motor learning)
  • range of motion (including muscle length)
  • cardio vascular/pulmonary functions (aerobic capacity/endurance, circulation, and ventilation, and respiration/gas exchange

to enable the patient to return to work.

Work Hardening Program

A highly-structured, goal-oriented, individualized intervention program consisting of:

  • multi-hour sessions up to 8 hours/day; 5 days/week; for 8 weeks
  • multi-disciplinary approach
  • uses real or simulated work activities

to restore physical, behavioral, and vocational functions to return the injured patient/client back to work.

Work Rehabilitation

A combination of work conditioning and work hardening, it addresses physical, functional, behavioral, vocational needs within a multi-disciplinary model that included medical and workplace stakeholders.

  • Utilizes various therapeutic interventions with functional emphasis
  • Emphasizes the role of the worker/work activities
  • Treatment time is determined by situational analysis, may extend from hour/multi-hour sessions depending on evaluation and plan of care

To enable the patient to return to work at a pre-injury work level, in a safe and timely fashion.
