Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) which affect the body’s muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments and nerves, are a major cause of work absenteeism.
According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), an estimated 11.6 million working days a year are lost due to work related MSDs.
We offer the physiotherapy sessions aimed at relieving the debilitating effects of conditions caused by MSDs and helping get the employee back to work.
Physiotherapy treats both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions by using a number of different techniques.
Such techniques may include hands on manipulation and mobilisation, massage, hydrotherapy, exercise programmes, electrotherapy (eg ultrasound) and acupuncture.
A physiotherapist will devise a tailored rehabilitation programme to help an early return to work, which includes strength training and stretching exercises.
The patient will also be offered advice on how to manage their condition more effectively, eg exercising at home, plus postural and ergonomic advice.
