28.2 million workdays are lost because of musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions in the UK. With MSK conditions becoming increasingly prevalent, employers need to provide corporate physiotherapy services to reduce the working days lost to MSK conditions and improve employee health and wellbeing.
The Doctors Clinic Group aims to reduce workplace absence and presenteeism through our corporate physiotherapy programme. Our expert physiotherapists can bring you accessible face to face or video physiotherapy treatments.
Why it’s important for companies to consider offering corporate physiotherapy?
MSK health is often overlooked by employers especially in roles that are office-based or more sedentary in nature although, with increasing amounts of physical inactivity and sedentary working, whether that be in the office or from home, MSK injuries are becoming more prevalent.
In 2017, 28.2 million days were lost due to MSK conditions whilst sickness absence costs UK businesses an average of £522 per case, with this number likely to rise due to an ageing workforce It is estimated that by 2030 40% of the working age UK population will have an MSK condition.
Our corporate physiotherapy packages can keep your employees in good health, reduce days lost due to MSK conditions and educate to prevent future injuries that may occur through lifestyle or workplace habits for example posture and workplace desk ergonomics.
