Physiotherapy for Employees

Physiotherapy for Employees

Fairfield Physiotherapy & Sports Injuries Centre offers expert physio care for employees working across a range of sectors including all jobs with manual handling, trades, and corporate fields. Our physiotherapy services for employees aim to prevent injuries from occurring and treat existing injuries for an efficient and sustainable recovery.

Workplace Injury Prevention

We believe that prevention is better than any form of treatment, that’s why we offer manual handling training to help employees prevent injuries by learning the correct form and techniques needed for safe handling.

Consult with one of our physiotherapists in a one-on-one training and education session. Consultations also include an assessment of your current musculoskeletal health to identify any risk factors that may increase the likelihood of injury during your daily tasks.

To prevent mild injuries from progressing our physiotherapists can help early detection of injuries and provide treatment and management plans for a swift recovery. Early detection and treatment can help prevent severe injuries from developing and eliminate the need to take time off work due to injuries.

Physiotherapy for Tradesmen

Individuals with physically demanding jobs like tradesmen and labourers may suffer a higher incidence of some injuries compared to employees in other fields. Our physiotherapists have extensive experience working with patients in physically demanding occupations and are well versed in preventing and treating common injuries such as back pain, neck pain, and joint pain.  Our physiotherapy services for tradesmen include safe manual handling training, full body assessments to diagnose injuries, and treatment depending on the nature and severity of the injury.

Physiotherapy for Corporate Professionals

Prolonged computer and keyboard usage, sedentary lifestyle and inappropriate workstations can cause injury for professionals working in corporate environments. We offer postural assessments and ergonomic assessments to identify any factors that may result in injury. To treat existing injuries, we adopt a holistic approach including postural training, workstation recommendations, as well as treatment to reduce pain and promote recovery.

Workplace Injury Treatment and Rehabilitation

We believe that collaboration between our physios, patients and their workplace is key to achieving sustainable recovery. That’s why we’ll work with you to develop a personalised treatment plan taking into consideration pre-existing conditions, lifestyle and treatment goals. Depending on the nature and severity of the injury, recommended treatment may include:

  • Joint mobilisation and/or manipulation
  • Soft tissue massage
  • Exercise programs
  • Muscle re-education and training
  • Dry needling
  • Postural assessment/training
  • Gait assessment/training
  • Ergonomic and workplace assessment
