Industrial & Work Programs

HealthSouth’s Industrial Rehabilitation Program is an injury prevention and management program. Our goal is to identify the injured worker’s current limitations and successfully rehabilitate for a safe return to work.

Program components

Return-to-work programs


Functional capacity
evaluations consist of one or two-day assessments designed to evaluate the worker’s physical capacities and limitations with respect to normal functions.

Work hardening utilizes work-centered activities in an organized program to recondition injured workers and facilitate a safe and timely return to work. The highly structured program consists of four to eight hours of services, three to five days a week.

Work conditioning is a work-related program with one to four hours of services, two to three days a week.
