The Work Conditioning Program is an individualized conditioning program designed to decrease symptomatology and increase functional abilities following a period of debilitation. This is accomplished by improving the participant’s overall conditioning with a goal of preventing hazardous conditions, increasing muscular strength, cardiovascular endurance, and flexibility.
The ergonomic philosophy of Duergo Therapy Systems is to increase functional and work activity to an individual’s maximum potential while minimizing the symptom response to activity such as pain and fatigue. In order to be recommended for a job or return to work, the individual must demonstrate:
