The Benefits of Occupational Physiotherapy Services

November 7, 2017

Part of our service at Physiotherapy Matters involves providing Occupational Physiotherapy services to a variety of employers across the North East. We deliver a range of services adapted to suit the needs of the organisations.


We provide onsite physiotherapy clinics for a variety of companies including Virgin Money, Nexus Metro and Calsonic Kansei. Employees have quick access to assessment and treatment services to help minimise pain and discomfort and manage early recovery. Onsite physicians liaise with managers and HR to help advise on managing conditions at work with the aim of reducing sickness absence and improving productivity, whilst ensuring safe working practices.


Offsite services can be provided for smaller employers or where onsite clinics are not suitable. Employees can be referred into any of our private clinics for assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. We can then provide reports to the company to assist them in managing the employee at work safely.


Additional services can be provided to existing and new customers including:

  • Telephone triage
  • DSE assessments
  • Manual handling assessments
  • Ergonomic risk assessments and reports
  • Spinal awareness training
