Back pain and
musculo-skeletal injuries have been identified as the biggest health concerns, and a major
cause of absence, for employers in the UK.
Not only are muscular, bone
and joint problems some of the most common ailments among employees, they can also prove
to be some of the most debilitating, resulting in extensive periods off work. Worse still, they can lead to the risk of employee
litigation and significant insurance costs.
On-site or local physiotherapy is being embraced
around the world as an effective, cost efficient means of reducing the cost of workplace.
The M Bill Physiotherapy
On-Site service offers employers a unique hands-on proactive approach to injury
Our service bridges the gap between employees and employers by facilitating communication
and keeping employers informed about the progress of their employees' injuries.
Workplace Physiotherapy and Injury
Management can offer on-site treatment for organisations that would prefer for their
workers to be treated at their workplace.
Treatment can include all aspects of Physiotherapy, establishment of exercise programs,
pre-employment screening, and preventative programs.
This approach to workplace injury
management reduces the costs associated with the worker travelling off-site to attend for
treatment and reduces the time the worker spends away from the workplace. Having treatment provided on-site also allows for
quick and convenient feedback on the progress of workers.
This service can also be provided to link in with existing medical services.
