Work Conditioning

Returning to work after an injury can be scary.

Your employee might be thinking...

Work Conditioning can answer those two questions and help prepare the injured employee for a successful return to full duty.  

Our Wichita clinic offers a work conditioning program to increase strength and endurance while addressing factors like fear of reinjury, perceived injustice and disability beliefs. Our therapists at WorkSafe will help your employees increase their work tolerance.  

This results in less chronic work disability and higher levels of productivity.

The longer a person is off work the less likely they are to return to work at all.

Not only have you lost a good employee but they have lost earning potential and a way to support their family.

Using a personalized work conditioning program from our Wichita clinic with targeted goals, our therapists can be the bridge between traditional physical therapy and full time work. 

If a return to the previous occupation is not possible there is objective documentation outlining the current level of work capacity, making job placement easier.

Wichita Physical Therapist

I am very grateful I was sent to WorkSafe Physical Therapy. I am in much better shape physically and mentally than I was when I started here. I can tell I am much stronger.

How Work Conditioning Works.

Work conditioning sessions with our Wichita physical therapists start at 2 hours per day, usually 4 to 5 days a week.  As the client’s work tolerance improves, sessions may last up to 4 hours daily. 

Work capacity is assessed weekly.  Tasks such as lifting, carrying, push/pull, and working in static postures are measured objectively to document progress towards the stated work goals.  The ultimate goal is to maximize the client’s work tolerance so they can return to full duty.
