Riverside return to work programs include functional capacity testing, pre-work screenings, and work conditioning / work hardening programs for higher intensity therapy to ensure readiness to return to work.
Following an injury, it is very important to return to work as soon as possible. Many patients become very weak and deconditioned following an injury and are unable to return to a physical job. The Work Conditioning and Work Hardening Programs help to increase total body strength and conditioning to allow for return to work. The therapists are also able to use tools and equipment to help simulate repetitive or difficult tasks that you may do at work. Riverside's Occupational therapy team also performs functional capacity evaluations to determine your ability to return to work after recovery. Our return to work programs are at the Riverside Atrium.
