Work Injury Rehabilitation

Were you involved in a work place injury and require Work Injury Rehabilitation and Workplace Physiotherapy? If you have been injured at work you need to get the right treatment as soon as possible. Getting the right treatment for injuries sustained at work are important to getting you out of pain and back to work as soon as possible. We are experts in carrying out work injury rehabilitation.

When you have an injury at work it doesn’t just affect your work life, but it can also have effects on your family as well. That’s why it is important to make an appointment to see the highly qualified Physiotherapists at Physiotherapy Professionals Parramatta as soon as an injury has occurred. Work cover claims tend to run smoother if you take action close to the time of your workplace accident.

Onsite Physiotherapy Treatment

Our Physiotherapists can significantly improve staff productivity in the workplace by assisting staff with their posture, work station setup or any other injury they may have. Having correct posture in the office is essential especially when we spend long periods of time in sitting.

Pre Employment Screening

As part of new staff training, we can come to your workplace, whether it’s an office, construction site or retail store and run through an individualised exercise routine. Warming up before work ensures staff are conducting themselves in a safe manner in work sites which require repetitive movements or manual handling.

Wellness Programs: Massage

Our massage therapists are available for onsite services and have been trained in a range of soft tissue techniques to reduce muscle tension. Massage is one of the most effective stress management techniques available and can be very effective in keeping workers relaxed and injury free.

Corporate Physiotherapy

Not only do we offer onsite Physiotherapy services to corporate offices throughout Sydney, we also offer a priority service at our clinic for any workers that need further assistance. For more information on how we can further assist your corporate Physiotherapy needs, please call our clinic number on 0479 080 800 or send us an email on [email protected] for further details.
