Our facility is equipped to develop and monitor Work Hardening Programs.
Traditionally, Work Hardening Programs are created for clients based on the physical demands for their given job. We will incorporate exercises and work specific tasks that are suited for each individual to be completed in our clinics. Our programs generally incorporate three modified functional capacity evaluations. This allows us to objectively compare progress of our clients from the beginning, middle and end of the program.
The average program is eight weeks long. We usually start each client out at two hours per day depending on their functional levels during the initial testing. We will then graduate their activity levels, typically ending with eight hours per day.
