Expert Sydney workplace injury prevention and treatment
At Fitcare Health our mobile physios know that workplace injury prevention is critical to the smooth functioning and profitability of your operations. Small aches and pains left unidentified and untreated can severely damage the musculoskeletal health of your workers, quickly escalating into lost time, costly claims and reduced productivity. This is especially true when it comes to faulty manual handling practices.
Fitcare Health’s two-pronged approach to workplace injury mitigation means that our highly experienced onsite occupational physiotherapists not only diagnose and treat your employees on the spot. They can also carry out standardised workplace assessments such as functional movement screens, and instigate workplace injury prevention strategies that will greatly reduce your risks. This results in a reduction in claims, a fit and aware workforce, a lift in productivity – and ultimately a boost to your bottom line.
Skilled onsite physiotherapy services for workplace assessment
Functional movement screens (FMS) – delivered by Fitcare Health’s highly skilled onsite physios are invaluable for getting a full picture of the health risk profile of your organisation. The test consists of seven standard movements that quickly and efficiently measure coordination, core strength, flexibility and dynamic stability. Most importantly, as a result of this screening, we show your worker specific exercises to correct her or his particular movement faults, greatly reducing the risk of injury.
Once the overall FMS testing is completed, we provide you with a report which provides you with an overall picture of the musculoskeletal risks facing your business. We can then devise specific group fitness programs to develop flexibility, strength and conditioning in your workforce.
