Many assume physio can only do with hands-on treatment. However, manual manipulation, such as sports massage, is overplayed. According to the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE), it is “active rehabilitation" -doing repetitive exercises to strengthen and re-align a problem area – which makes the difference.

Musculoskeletal conditions are a big problem for business. Hours spent sitting at a desk or jobs involving heavy lifting can put increased pressure on the spine and contribute to the rise in back and neck problems. Musculoskeletal conditions are responsible for 31 million working days lost in the UK. That’s 23% of all working days lost. It represents a high, but the preventable cost for your business.
The good news is that early access to physiotherapy, in the first eight weeks of an injury, is effective in resolving many issues. But many of your staff are not getting the timely help they need. NHS waiting times for physiotherapy are increasing. And traditional physiotherapy can be expensive and time-consuming.
Giving your staff access to online physiotherapy can be an effective solution, which allows staff to get treatment quickly. And it is cost-effective for your business. The team do not have to take time off work for appointments, and you pay-as-you-use it, which means any sized business and scale can give it.
One of the most significant advantages of online physiotherapy is timely access. Employees can get appointments more quickly than face to face without having to re-arrange their busy schedules. But there are many more reasons to choose an online service which we outline below.
