Achieving a reduction in the levels of sickness-related work absence currently experienced by your business is becoming increasingly important, especially with the steadily growing cost of incapacity benefit claims. Stress and underlying musculoskeletal conditions are common causes of employee poor health, which can be made worse by extended periods of staying off work.
Broad-Based Physiotherapy Solutions
Physiotherapists help people to return to work more quickly and then manage their own health and well-being. This can of course provide major cost savings for companies, with significantly less absenteeism and associated benefit claims due to ill health. Approximately 55% of all work-related illness results from staff members’ musculo-skeletal conditions.
Common reasons for non-attendance at work include sciatica, neck or arm pain, low back pain, tennis elbow and difficulty with stairs or heavy lifting.
The average employee in the UK takes 7 days of sick leave annually, incurring both costs and inconvenience for managers. Occupational physiotherapy services for your team not only cuts expense but can also lead to improvements in other factors like productivity, morale and motivation.
