Work and Functional Conditioning

Work Conditioning

Also referred to as work hardening, work conditioning is an intensive, work-related, goal oriented conditioning/rehabilitation program used to restore an individual's functional capacities to return, maintain, or upgrade their ability to work. This would be achieved through restoration of the individual's systemic, neurological-muskuloskeletal functions (strength, endurance, movement, flexibility and motor control) and cardiopulmonary functions.

The program may have a job goal but may not necessarily be to return to their previous employment position.

Functional Conditioning

This is a conditioning based rehabilitation program designed for the purpose of restoring physical function for the demands of daily living.

These programs utilize physical conditioning and functional activities related to Activities of Daily Living (ADL).

Steelcity Physiotherapy & Wellness Centre offers work and functional conditioning programs led by a team with advanced training in these programs.
