Musculoskeletal disorders (aches and pains in the neck, back, arms and legs) are one of the most common causes of absenteeism from work. This results in a cost for your business.

Evidence based research has shown that early intervention and early physiotherapy treatment will contain these costs and minimise absenteeism.

Our aim is to support you in preventing and managing workplace injuries and control and reduce associated costs by providing:

  1. Appropriate, timely physiotherapy treatment for employees who have been injured at work or who complain of work related musculoskeletal disorders.

  1. Workplace-focused rehabilitation to facilitate the employee to remain at work, or to return to work as soon as possible.

  1. Ergonomic workplace assessments and training, if necessary, to facilitate the employee to remain at work or to return to work as soon as possible.

  1. Identify and educate on how to reduce the risks associated with manual handling specific to work demands and individual behaviour. For example methods of lifting, posture, and benefits of exercise.

  1. Identify and educate on how to reduce risks of manual handling relative to the task, the load, the working environment and the individual capacity.

We also liaise with Occupational Health, HR or Health and Safety managers to ensure effective rehabilitation of employee's.  

The benefits for the company and your employees are:

•Reduced risk of injury.

•Compliance with relevant health and safety legislation.

•Timely physiotherapy when needed.

•Occupational focused assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of workplace injuries.

•Reduced travel times for treatment if physiotherapy is provided onsite.

•Increased morale among staff when injuries are dealt with quickly and efficiently.

•Staff retention.

•Reduced absenteeism associated with workplace injuries.

•Reduced costs associated with absenteeism.

It is simply and cost effective to set up a treatment facility onsite, often an existing First Aid room or occupational health department can be used.

We can provide both onsite and offsite physiotherapy treatment to suit your company’s needs.
