Work Conditioning / Hardening

Well here at Access Physical Therapy, we guide you through the path of recovery to insure that once you return to work that you are not reinjured after your return. We use a simulated job site method which is geared towards each individual’s specific job site as if you were at your actual place of employment. This way, your mind is motivated towards returning back to work without minimal functional restrictions.
