Work Injuries – South Holland Medical Center
Work conditioning is an individualized, work-oriented program designed to restore strength, endurance, movement and flexibility. The objective of a work-conditioning program is to restore function to enable a safe return to work. Work conditioning provides a transition between acute care and return to work while addressing motivation, safety and physical tolerances as well as worker behaviors.
Conditioning tasks are graded to advance the biomechanical, neuromuscular, cardiovascular and psychosocial functions of the patient in conjunction with participating in structured and graded job simulation or actual work tasks.
