Job Specific Work Conditioning Program

Traditional work hardening uses a linear progression of workload by increasing the load and repetitions. The result is a daily increase in symptoms and a decline in compliance from the client.
We use neuro-adaptation to train the body to efficiently move the load without increasing the strain and increasing pain. Thus we avoid DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) which causes increased pain with exercise and poor compliance from the client.
- You improve your client’s odds of successful return to work.
- You improve your odds of closing the case.

- Cost Effective-A legally defensible, objective test is more cost effective. Why? The information helps providers and referral sources close claims-Period.
