One of Bode Clinic’s largest focus areas is occupational health within office workers in and around Manchester. We go in with quite a big promise, guaranteeing to eliminate all sickness absence caused by musculoskeletal problems.

Once a year we hold a audit across our business contracts, and so far we have managed to keep our promise. (phew!)

What is musculoskeletal (MSK) problems? These include

  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Headaches
  • Arthritis

Generally all aches and pains you feel in the body as a result from overuse, bad posture, repetitive strain. But also if you happen to be involved in any accidents, recovering from cancer or serious illnesses and surgeries or simply just woke up with a very stiff neck.

Our wellness packages include visits from a physiotherapist to your workplace and we provide in-house physio treatments, workplace assessments, joint injections, acupuncture, sports massage and much more.

So lets have a look at what this years feedback stats show us:

  • 50% say they would only seek a physio if they were already off work. This would cause the business unnecessary stress, loss of money and productivity. The key is to avoid sickness absence, deal with the problem early
  • 0% sickness absence caused by MSK related problems

What does the employees think about having a physio visiting their work?

  • Relieves stress
  • Reduced aches and pains
  • Improves mood
  • Improves wellness at work
  • Encourages to seek help for aches and pains

All the above points are crucial to run a productive business with happy staff.

Also, did you know there are some tax benefits when you sign up for in-house physiotherapy service? So, what would you prefer….pay the taxman some extra money, or invest it in your employees and make them happy and healthy at the same time?
