Physiotherapy in the workplace

Physiotherapy in the workplace is known as Occupational Physiotherapy and refers to the application of Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy within the work environment.

Occupational Physiotherapy Specialists have completed further training in the assessment of the workplace and its impact on the employee (ergonomics). They use their extensive knowledge to help prevent, diagnose and treat conditions related to work thereby allowing the employee to work at maximum potential and affording the employer increased productivity.

Examples of Occupational Physiotherapy services include:

  • Workplace Assessments
  • Risk assessments
  • Manual Handling Training
  • Ergonomics

A UK-wide CSP survey showed that 32% of people who have desk based work experience physical pain during working hours at least once a week. A further 65% reported back pain as the most common problem. Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) such as back pain are one of the biggest causes of sickness absence on any given day and are estimated to cost society and employers around £7.4 billion a year!

With more and more of us having the option to work from home it's imperative to have the correct seating arrangement to reduce the risk of back pain and other associated aches and pains.
