Work Hardening is a comprehensive multidisciplinary treatment program designed to restore an individual’s physical capacity and function for safe return-to-work.
It incorporates the use of conditioning tasks that are graded to progressively improve the biomechanical, neuromuscular, cardiovascular, metabolic and psychosocial functions of the individual in conjunction with real or simulated work activities.
Work Hardening is a highly structured, goal oriented, individualized treatment program which provides a transition between acute care and return to work while addressing the issues of productivity, safety, physical tolerances and work behaviors.
