Work Conditioning Programs

Unable to work due to an injury? Between the loss of income, impact on your career, and the effect on your mental health, being unable to work can be devastating—but we can help.

This is critical because if you try to return to work before you’re ready, you could end up making things worse for yourself.

Our Work Conditioning Programs begin with examining the physical demands of your job. We’ll then make a thorough assessment of your current capabilities. By comparing the two, we will figure out exactly what limitations you’re facing.

Once we know this information, we’re ready to design a goal-oriented program that will help you restore your functional and physical abilities. Our programs typically include work conditioning exercises and work simulations of the physical demands involved in your job.

We also offer a range of treatments such as physiotherapy, chiropractic, massage therapy, and orthotics, that can complement your program. Our doctors will use their understanding of body mechanics to improve your function, strength, and endurance until you’re ready to get back to work.

Our assessments include diagnostic tools like x-ray, ultrasound, MRI, and more. These tools will help us identify any medical issues that are affecting your functional abilities. By getting to the root cause of your limitations, we will restore your physical capacity to where it was pre-injury.  

This approach also helps ensure long term results. By uncovering the source of your limitations, we can make sure they don’t come back.

Your Custom Plan

By understanding your unique limitations and what’s needed for your particular job, we’ll design a Work Conditioning Program that’s as unique as you are. That means your treatment will be as efficient as possible. We will focus on reaching your individual goals so you can return to work faster. We’ll restore your strength, endurance, and mobility to make sure you can meet all the physical demands of your job.

Like many of our services, our Work Conditioning Programs are often covered through insurance. That includes the coverage you may have through workers’ compensation or auto insurance.  If you’re not sure if you are covered, contact us and we can help. We can offer competitive rates for our treatments.

FAQ's

  • 1. Is Chronic Pain a Chronic Disease?

    Cervical osteoarthritis can sometimes reach the point where it can be classified as a disability. It can stop you from doing tasks that require you to bend or lift things. You may also find it painful to sit for long periods, so most office and retail roles become difficult or impossible for you to carry out. The fact that cervical osteoarthritis stops you from carrying out so many tasks means that it may be possible to claim disability benefits for this condition.

  • 2. What Are the 5 Worst Foods to Eat If You Have Arthritis?
