HIPA’s Onsite Physiotherapy service is a proven approach to early management and prevention of work related injuries.
Physiotherapists have a unique skill set which enables them to assist in treating musculoskeletal injuries.
Manual Workforces have numerous musculoskeletal injuries, primarily in the lower back and shoulder regions. This is due to the manual handling that is required by employees to complete work tasks.
Benefits of having HIPA’s Onsite Physiotherapy:
Injuries may often have lengthy rehabilitation times as well as be a financial strain to the company due to onerous Return to Work and Workcover issues.
The early detection of injuries leads to earlier management and treatment. Having a physiotherapist onsite helps assist this process and employees and employers benefit greatly. Employees requiring physiotherapy need not travel unnecessarily and take time off work to attend appointments.
Monitoring injured employees onsite also helps streamline the referral process to other Health Practitioners (ie: Surgical Consultations, Rehabilitation and/or Counselling). Employees can be directed to more appropriate means of treatment more efficiently.
Another benefit of Onsite Physiotherapy is that our HIPA consultants can liaise directly with Occupational Health and Safety Staff and Return to Work Coordinators. This improves communication and simplifies the Return Work process for both worker and employer.
