Our accredited physiotherapists help organisations prevent or manage injury proactively in the workplace through tailored on-site physiotherapy services. Our on-site physiotherapy hubs help to reduce workplace injuries and claims, improve recovery time frames, reduce the risk of re-injury and educate and empower employees to take care of their wellbeing.

Employees who have sustained compensable or non-compensable injuries or chronic illness benefit from the service. Employees are referred to our on-site clinics via an agreed referral process discussed with each organisation. As an example, referrals may arrive via an employee’s human resources department or following a recommendation from their manager or supervisor.

Sessions are designed as an early intervention service to provide employees with sufficient advice and treatment to manage their musculoskeletal conditions in a safe and effective manner. Treatment consists of an initial assessment followed by four sessions, including thorough reporting of treatment plans and recommendations.

We aim to empower employees to adopt a self-management approach. Following these five sessions recommendations may be made regarding further intervention requirements, such as additional sessions or referral to other medical services.
