Work Conditioning is a comprehensive program that focuses on “total body” reconditioning with instruction of body/lifting mechanics, pain management and nutrition. It includes work simulation of the functional movement patterns associated with the job the patient will return to. Work Conditioning includes exercise only in order to get the patient back to work to a job to be determined. This course is generally done daily for 2 to 4 hours and 3 to 5 times a week. The goal is to progress the patient to 5 times a week.
