Occupational Physiotherapy helps organisations to build and sustain good health in the workplace: personal carers, tradies on-site, office workers, housekeepers etc. If someone in your organisation reports pain and difficulty in performing activities, needs regular sick leave after doing certain tasks or there have been accidents and “near misses”, an Occupational Physiotherapy On-site assessment can help to resolve these issues.
How Does This Work?
By working with the people involved, observing and testing the task (task analysis), checking out someone’s physical capability for a task or role, I understand where the problem lies, and alongside the organisation and the person work out the best value solutions to resolve the problem.
I seek to understand the patient and their experience of physical problems affecting them. Using my Physiotherapy knowledge, skills and techniques I can help patients address some of the most common painful musculoskeletal conditions e.g. back or neck pain, joint problems, headaches, and difficulties associated with genetics or particular times of life e.g pregnancy related musculoskeletal pain, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis.
The treatment techniques used are influenced by the best evidence available for treatment of the condition, safety, client’s preference or previous experience of treatment and how quickly results can be achieved or expected. Treatments include advice and education on the condition and one or other of “hands on” therapy, functional exercise and behavioural change. Clients are helped to develop new (healthy) habits, re-taught movement control or may use hypnotherapy or neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) techniques to reach their goals. Each person receives their individual prescription to go from recovery and beyond!
At the first assessment, I ask lots of questions and ask for background information on your health and activities, as well as about your experience of the problem.
Completing the Pre-Assessment and terms and conditions form in advance helps to ensure that your session time is maximised. The information contributes to the comprehensive picture about you, so that you receive the most appropriate advice and treatment. It takes around 45 and 60 minutes. You can ask questions any time and you receive a take-home action plan. On subsequent sessions (25 minutes) we always start with a reassessment and ensure that the plan is working for you and then get to work with treatment.
