Our Occupational Health physiotherapists are experts in work-related musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders. We provide expert assessment and treatment of a number of conditions including repetitive strain injuries (RSIs), back and neck pain, work-relevant MSK disorders such as sports injuries or complex pain conditions, as well as age-related MSK disorders often associated with an aging workforce such as arthritis and joint pain. Furthermore, we can provide post-operative rehabilitation following surgical procedures such as joint replacement and carpal tunnel decompression.

Through health promotion activities, symptom management, appropriate return to work planning and working closely with employer representatives and other available teams (such as mental health and foot care clinics), our Occupational Health physiotherapy services are able to improve employee wellbeing, ensure legal compliance, reduce sickness absence and presenteeism, and help employers plan for the future.
