Returning to work after an accident, injury or illness can be a daunting thought, but the quicker you can get back to normal, the better your recovery will be and we can help you get there. Getting back to work has many benefits, including faster healing, helping with mental health and restoring that all-important work-life balance.
Returning to work doesn’t necessarily mean getting back to 100% straight away. Our experienced team helps support clients and employers through the different stages of recovery and what that means in terms of workload so people can eventually be functional – and get on with life!
By rebuilding everyday activities and managing expectations in a safe environment, people are able to continue moving while they heal, while also helping to build ownership and trust.
Our Return to Work programmes are custom-made for each client, their situation and their specific job and responsibilities. This means we work alongside people on-the-job, at home, out in the community or with exercise prescriptions in the gym to rehabilitate. We also work alongside our strong network of other health providers to make sure our clients are getting the best plans possible.
GoPhysio provides pre-employment screening for employers so they can be confident they are providing a safe and healthy environment for their employees, reducing the risk of accident or injury, as well as making sure they are hiring fit-for-purpose staff.
Health and safety at work means making sure employees can do their jobs without the risk of injury or harm. Employers’ duty of care has increased significantly in this area after the Safety at Work Act came into effect in April 2016.
GoPhysio can help companies both large and small to create healthy workplaces by providing exercise and wellness programmes, injury assessment, rehab programmes, workplace assessments, ergonomics advice, manual handling training.
We also work alongside ACC, insurance providers and other third parties such as doctors, surgeons and other physiotherapists to coordinate treatment and return to work plans.
