Work Conditioning

Work conditioning is completed in preparation for a safe return to work, generally after a lengthy absence.  Programs are custom designed to include aspects of your physiotherapy treatment and to mimic physical tasks performed on the job. The length of each session is gradually increased to build endurance to prevent re-injury. In the end, a patient may attend up to 4 hours, 5 day per week.

Work Conditioning Components

    • Simulation of work demands

    • Development of strength and endurance

    • Education about proper body mechanics

Work conditioning is ideal for any labour intensive workers requiring a safe transition back into the work force. It can also help prevent reinjury.
