Work Hardening Clinic is one of the pre-eminent clinics where patients’ care, well-being and safe return to work are our foremost priorities. We develop individualized and goal-oriented programs to promote and expedite workers’ successful return to the job after an injury or illness.
The Work Hardening and Work Conditioning programs are goal-oriented and job-specific programs developed to improvise the biomechanical, cardiovascular and neuromuscular demands of the injured workers job. The Work Hardening and Work Conditioning programs make use of real or simulated work conditions to restore strength, motion, endurance, and vocational function that is required for the patient to return to work successfully. The injured worker will also be educated on techniques to prevent re-injury including risk factors and will be taught task and behavior modification if needed.
