How Physiotherapy helps improve workplace physical health.

Any type of work can lead to, or exacerbate, an MSK condition. Office workers, drivers, and warehouse staff - all are likely to suffer from joint pain at some stage in their life that could easily be improved or remedied by our team of highly trained HCPC-registered physiotherapists.

We work closely with patients to create personalised treatment plans, using a combination of techniques such as exercise therapy, manual therapy, electrotherapy, and the use of assistive devices as required.

Effective physiotherapy will help your employees across a range of physical problems including;

  • Neck, back and shoulder pain
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Post-surgery recovery

Physiotherapy also has proven benefits when dealing with neurological conditions like;

  • Stroke recovery
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s disease

Physical therapy treatment options.

In addition to Physiotherapy, our qualified assessors may suggest one of the following therapies as part of any treatment plan.

Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a manual therapy used to diagnose and treat conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system. It is based on the principle that the body is a holistic system, and that imbalances or restrictions in one part can affect the function of other parts. Our Osteopaths use a range of techniques, including stretching, massage and manipulation, to promote healing and improve mobility for conditions such as;

  • Back pain, sciatica and whiplash
  • Arthritis
  • Headaches
  • Hand, shoulder and elbow pain
  • Foot, ankle, hip and knee pain
  • Postural problems

In the context of occupational health, osteopathy can help employees recover from musculoskeletal problems related to their work, such as repetitive strain injuries, and prevent the development of such problems in the future.

Chiropractic Therapy

Chiropractor therapy is a manual therapy that focuses on the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine. It is based on the principle that misalignments in the spine can affect the nervous system and cause various health problems.

Chiropractors use manual adjustments to correct these misalignments, restoring proper function to the nervous system.

In the context of occupational health, chiropractor therapy can be helpful for employees who experience musculoskeletal pain - especially lower back or neck pain - or discomfort as a result of their work activities.

The therapy can help alleviate pain, improve mobility and flexibility, and enhance overall health and wellbeing.

Tailored Physiotherapy treatment plans for your business

Different workplace responsibilities lead to different MSK problems. Sedentary office staff are likely to be more affected by conditions like RSI, postural problems, or neck & back pain. Workers engaged in more physical activity will usually have specific muscle or joint-based issues, and be at more risk from accidental injury.

In all cases, working with our trained physiotherapists to develop a personalised treatment plan will address your employee's specific needs, and our goal-based approach will help their rehabilitation. Our clinicians also provide education on pain management and injury prevention, ensuring patients take an active role in their recovery.

Our Physiotherapy services are available on a contractual or on-demand basis.
