Musculoskeletal conditions account for 55% of all work-related illnesses is well recognised that musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions significantly impact work productivity, staff morale, mental health and number of sick days taken off work. Statistics gathered by The Work Foundation have found that MSK conditions account for 55% of all work-related illnesses. The Prince’s Responsible Business Network found that in the UK approximately 31 million working days are lost per year due to MSK conditions, creating significant costs to you as an employer.

The Physio Company offers an On-site Corporate Physiotherapy service that has proven to be effective in reducing the impact of these conditions. Here are the many ways we can benefit you and your company:

Less sick days and less time off work

According to the health and safety executive in 2017/18 each person suffering a musculoskeletal disorder took an average of 14 days off work.
Access to early intervention facilitates a faster recovery time reducing future staff sick days due to MSK disorders. An On-site Physiotherapy service alleviates the need for staff to take time off work to travel to and from appointments.

There are no additional costs to setting up an Onsite Physiotherapy service with The Physio Company. We provide all the necessary equipment.

Increased staff moral and satisfaction with employer

Length of absence due to MSK conditions is 4 days longer than the average length of time taken off for other illnesses Providing an on-site physiotherapy service demonstrates an employer’s commitment towards the wellbeing of their staff. It helps create a company ethos that encourages employees to take control of their own health with employer support.
Musculoskeletal problems, particularly those of a chronic nature have a clear link with mental health conditions including anxiety and depression. The effect of this can be minimised by providing access to effective treatment for staff. Supporting staff, in turn, improves staff moral and productivity at work.

Rehabilitation programs are tailored accordingly as our Physiotherapists work alongside any company occupational health teams. We have years of experience in successfully treating patients in cooperation with other providers such as an onsite GP, Physiologist and gym fitness team.

Reduced presenteeism at work

The term “presenteeism” is used to describe the issue of employees coming into work while not physically or mentally well. Presenteeism causes businesses to suffer a detrimental impact on the quality and volume of work produced, with a further impact on overall business performance.

MSK conditions left untreated often lead to presenteeism at work, resulting in a loss of productivity. 39% of public sector workers and 26% of private-sector workers have experienced this in their own workplace according to the ONS (Office for national statistics).

A study by Ricci et al looked at 412 workers in the United States. Of those workers who reported back pain, 79.6% said they experienced productivity loss. The mean number of hours lost over a two-week period due to presenteeism equated to 4.4. hours per worker.
