Our Industrial Rehabilitation Center team is composed of licensed professionals providing high quality physical and behavioral care in an industrial rehabilitation setting. We strive to improve the work ethic of injured employees and return them to a healthy and employable condition so they may successfully rejoin the workforce.
If you have suffered a work-related injury and have not been able to return to work following traditional physical therapy, your doctor may recommend industrial rehabilitation to facilitate your recovery. This type of program is a unique form of therapy referred to as either work hardening or work conditioning.
Being off work for an extended period of time often results in deconditioning, which basically means that your body has adjusted to reduced physical activity during your recovery and now is having a hard time readjusting to the physical demands of your job. Activities to which you were accustomed before your injury may now be difficult to perform. Working for an entire day may seem impossible. You may still be experiencing some pain and feel uncertain about what activities you can safely perform. You may either be unable to return to your former employment or be required to return to a level of activity that is less strenuous than that of your previous employment requirements. Deconditioning is often not effectively treated using traditional physical therapy and this is where job-specific rehabilitation techniques can help.
