For most work related injuries, employees find that they may need conventional physical therapy and will quickly recover and return to their normal working environment. However, for some the injury can be so severe and require an extended recovery time that the injured worker becomes de-conditioned and his or her endurance must be reconditioned to handle the critical demands of the job. For those patients who are not able to return to work promptly after recovering from an injury, Sovereign Rehabilitation offers a work conditioning program. This program specifically addresses the deficits in strength, endurance, flexibility, coordination, and function needed to achieve a full return to work.
At Sovereign Rehabilitation, our licensed therapists utilize physical conditioning and functional activities that are specifically related to the employee’s critical job duties. The main objective of our work conditioning program is to restore overall functional ability of the individual so that they are able to reach the level of which they can perform critical job duties without restrictions.
We understand that returning to work as quickly as possible is very important to many of our patients. Families rely on the income that the job provides, and even with a disability settlement helping to cover medical bills, there are still the daily living needs that must be met. Our work conditioning programs are beneficial to both the employee and the employer as we help to have people working again in a more productive and safer environment.
If you are in need of work conditioning, contact the experienced and licensed therapists at Sovereign Rehabilitation today. We will work to find a specific treatment program that meets your needs and helps you return to work as quickly as possible.
