Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Changes of the Readiness for Return-To-Work Scale scores during rehabilitation [ Time Frame: The participants do the pretest of RRTW scale in the first week in their work hardening program, finishing the protest in the last week before the program ends. The duration depends on people. (In an average of 4-6 weeks) ]
    Using the RRTW scale changes of the pretest and protest data to calculate the responsiveness.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from the Readiness for Return-To-Work Scale scores at 1 week [ Time Frame: The participants do the pretest of RRTW scale in the first week in their work hardening program, and they do the retest after one week. ]
    Using the pretest and retest data of the Readiness for Return-To-Work (RRTW) scale to calculate the reliability.
