Budget kept in mind
Work conditioning is a formal program geared to preparing the injured worker for return to work. This structured program is developed for the individual’s needs and specific job duties, under the direct supervision of a therapist. It typically takes place at a clinic three times a week for 2 hour increments, for a total of 4-6 weeks. The program consists of endurance training, strength training, lifting/pushing/pulling/carrying, job coaching, and performance of job duties.
A Functional Capacity Evaluation is a test designed to evaluate an individual’s physical ability to perform certain tasks associated with work. The United States Department of Labor provides twenty separate functions on which work capabilities are based.
Results of this evaluation are crucial in allowing the health professional to communicate a worker’s “safe” ability to return to the workforce.
These evaluations usually arise in the context of a Workers’ Compensation claim and, typically require a physician’s referral.
Upon creation of a physical job description, the therapist can then design a physical test that replicates the physical job demands, is ADA compliant, can be used for hiring, placement and return to work.

The process of determining that an injured worker can safely perform job tasks.
Our therapists can conduct an on-site evaluation of a job’s particular ergonomic requirements in order to identify areas where changes in the work area or techniques used to perform the job can reduce the risk of injury. This process typically takes 2-4 hours per job title. A comprehensive report is provided to the employer; complete with risk factors and solutions. The findings and recommendations are reviewed together; in order to find solutions which are cost-effective and feasible.
Our experienced staff is available to provide education and training programs to assure workers have the skills and knowledge to perform their jobs safely and efficiently. This could include “Lunch and Learns”, workshops, information tables during employee wellness fairs or lunch hours.
Many large companies observe employees at work to make improvements in work processes. These hours may be scheduled weekly, biweekly, or monthly to meet the employer needs. Many work related injuries can be prevented by early identification of problems and applications of appropriate first aid and education.
