Work Programs: Work Hardening

Work Hardening

Work Hardening is an multidisciplinary, individualized, job specific program with the goal of you returning to work. Work Hardening programs use real or simulated work tasks and progressively graded conditioning exercises that are based on the physical and functional demands of the job. Work hardening is designed to improve the biomechanical, neuromuscular, cardiovascular and psychosocial functioning of the worker.

Work Hardening is a minimum of four hours per day for three to five days a week.

To qualify for Work Hardening:

  •   The worker is typically no more than 2 years past date of injury.
  •   A physician’s referral.
  •   A defined return to work goal:
    •   A documented specific job goal to return to, or
    •   A job that has a labor market

Our staff is always ready to answer any questions you may have.
