WorkFit Program: St. Luke’s Rehabilitation Services provides structured, multi-disciplinary, intensive work hardening services for the injured worker who has failed to successfully return to work.
- Target: The injured worker who has not been successful in return-to-work. We provide multidisciplinary work-hardening-model physical therapy, occupational therapy, case management, as well as medical and psychological direction.
- Intensive: The injured worker participates in structured work hardening four hours per day, five days per week, for three weeks.
- Expected outcome: Clarification of return-to-work parameters and medical stability assist with case closure. At discharge, employee should have current work-related capacities and appropriate activity precautions identified, understand safe work environment concepts and habits, be independent in symptom management, and be able to continue his or her exercise program without further need for medically necessary interventions.
Work Conditioning Programs: A scaled-down “menu” approach to assessing the key components of work hardening, and omitting the unnecessary components of a structured multidisciplinary approach.
- Target: Injured workers who need work hardening, but a structured multidisciplinary approach is not required.
- Diminished work loss: Allows for the injured worker to continue working a modified schedule, if appropriate.
LifeFit Program: A graduated physical conditioning and functional restoration program for the employee with a long-standing history of significant decrease in function and pain associated with an injury or disease process. The program utilizes a multidisciplinary approach led by a physiatrist to assist the patient in reaching medical stability.
