Workplace physiotherapy and ergonomics for your employees to help improve sickness levels, productivity & return on investment.

Virtual Physiotherapy a video based consultation that is easily accessible on a smartphone, tablet or computer. We can see your employees in the workplace or their own home and there is no lost time travelling to appointments. It is also often more cost-effective than face to face physiotherapy options. 

Our occupational health physiotherapists will: 

  • Assess symptoms and establish recovery timescales 
  • Provide evidence-based treatment and rehabilitation programmes using our app
  • Educate and reassure employees on how to self-manage their symptoms 
  • Identify any work tasks or demands which may be contributing to the disorders 
  • Give advice on any modifications needed for their return to work programme.

The majority of musculoskeletal injuries (those related to joints, bones, or tendons) are suitable for virtual physiotherapy such as low back pain / neck pain / working from home aches and pains / shoulder injuries / knee injuries / rehabilitation pre and post surgery / repetitive strain / rehabilitation post-injury / osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis and sports injuries.

How does it work

Virtual physiotherapy is a video-based consultation that is accessed on a smartphone, tablet or laptop with a camera. Headphones can be useful but not necessary.

The employee will be able to book their appointment online at a time that suits them and they will then receive a booking confirmation email which contains the video link.

At the time of their virtual appointment, they simply just click on the link. There is no need to download an app or software, however, Google Chrome works best.

We do ask the employee to consider where they will take the call as they will be asked to move around and be “hands-free”. The device may need to be placed on the floor or at body/ shoulder height. 

The physiotherapist will ask the employee about their symptoms and other questions related to their health and work. They will then be asked to complete certain movements and “tests” which will clarify the diagnosis and treatment plan.

A robust rehabilitation programme is then created by the physiotherapist taking into consideration your aims and using whatever equipment you have available. All exercises are available with clear videos and descriptions and can be accessed via our exercise app.

The physiotherapist will also discuss any work-related considerations which should be recommended to their referrer (i.e. work-related adjustments).

Supporting a return to work.

Our Occupational Health assessments are a great place to start if your employee is currently unable to work due to a physical injury or health condition.

Investing in your staff.

Occupational Health physiotherapy is a professional and highly effective way to look after the physical health of your staff. 

We believe in a proactive approach to reduce musculoskeletal injury and early intervention should an injury should occur.

1 in 4 employees will be living with a musculoskeletal injury

Musculoskeletal injury account for over 30% of all sickness absence

Musculoskeletal disorders also cause organisations problems such as sick pay, lost productivity, loss of key skills,
retraining costs, legal costs and injury benefit.

However, there is an opportunity for significant savings as many musculoskeletal disorders are manageable and can be prevented.

Occupational Health Physiotherapy gives a return on investment of £3-£12 per
£1 spent on physiotherapy services for employees.

What our customers say

Employee Benefits

Quick and easy access to a physiotherapist gives your employees reassurance, injury advice and rehabilitation.

We have same day virtual appointments available to provide ‘early intervention’ for acute injuries and urgent referrals. These are available between 8am-7pm Monday-Friday, and we also have Saturday appointments availability.

Our physiotherapy network is also hand-picked to ensure we have availability for face-to-face physiotherapy at a convenient location for your employees should they need it.

We have a highly effective hybrid approach to offer employees quick access to a virtual assessment of their symptoms for diagnosis, injury management, exercises, and to triage them to either continue virtual management or to refer to one of our physiotherapy network clinics for face-to-face treatment.

We have successfully helped thousands of employees through virtual appointments, with good patient feedback and clinical outcomes.

All our services aim to equip your employees with the information, advice, and tools to take a proactive approach to managing their injury recovery and on-going physical wellbeing.

Both our virtual and face-to-face physiotherapy services have shown equally high quality results for pain reduction, functional tasks, and confidence to manage their injury and physical health.

There is a really close link between physical and mental wellbeing – our services are aimed at improving physical health and function to support your employees back to work. We also give strategies and signposting for mental health support when needed.

Many employees want to return to work but can require support to reduce symptoms or move past barriers which have built up over time. We want our patients to return to work in a safe and achievable way to ensure it is successful and that they feel confident to remain at work once back.
