Patients who are beyond the initial acute stage of modalities and strengthening may be candidates for work conditioning. Typical clients are deconditioned post-injury and their work requires heavy physical demands. This is an intensive 4- to 8-hour program, 5 days a week, that is both work and goal oriented. This service is offered at all Advantage Healthcare Systems facilities.
This program helps restore physical capabilities that are required for work. Programs typically are 2 to 4 weeks long depending on the functional levels needed before full return-to-work, but they can last longer based on the patient’s treatment plan.
