Levels of sickness, absence and employee health have long been issues of concern for organisations large and small.
There are approximately 17.6 sick days taken by employees every year suffering with musculoskeletal disorders.
The Health and Vitality Centre are passionate about ensuring optimal health in our local community. We do this by aiding in pain relief and educating on posture, ergonomics and chiropractic care to help to reduce reoccurrences of pain.
Since 2015, The Health and Vitality Centre have been working closely with companies & organisations to offer Chiropractic services and corporate care packages.
Chiropractic treatment is extremely popular and as an integral part of workplace healthcare. It is already a service employed worldwide by many businesses, from Apple to Hewitt Packard.
Why employ a Chiropractor for workstation assessments?
Chiropractors undergo 5 years of undergraduate training and years of clinical experience treating musculoskeletal conditions and postural dysfunctions daily. This provides extensive knowledge of biomechanics and how repetitive or chronic strain affects the body.
Complimentary Spinal Screenings
A Free Spinal Screening is a 5-10 minute appointment with one of our Chiropractors at a convenient location within your workplace. The screening will begin with the chiropractor asking some questions to build a picture and then assessing the employee’s spinal health. They perform this fully clothed.
This assessment can also detect a risk of developing mechanical or postural problems in the future. If the Chiropractor believes that Chiropractic treatment can help, the employee will be given the opportunity to book a full new patient appointment at the clinic. This will allow time for a full consultation and examination and follow up report of findings.
If Chiropractic cannot help, advice will be given as to where the employee can seek care more appropriate to them.
These spinal screenings are a complimentary service to your company, they educate your employees to the benefits of natural healthcare and encourage them to take responsibility for their health and offer discounted corporate rates.
Workplace Wellness Talks
A Wellness talk is a complimentary presentation for your employees that can be arranged within your workplace. It will educate your employees on how to maximise their health and wellness through exercise, ergonomic advice and Chiropractic care.
It can be arranged at a convenient time including during a lunch break. The opportunity will also be given for employees to book a new patient appointment on the day.
These onsite services can hugely benefit employers and employees alike: demonstrating a proactive duty of care, promoting a happier, more productive workforce whilst reducing the risk of injuries and absenteeism.
How can Chiropractic add value to your Work force?
Work Station Assessments
During the assessment we look at all of your desk equipment and posture whilst you are carrying out your normal tasks. We assess the chair, desk, screen, keyboard, mouse, document holder, footrest, light (lamps and natural light), your posture and movement patterns, break frequency and the impact of these on your muscles and joints. Alterations are carried out on site where possible. If required, recommendations can be made of new equipment purchases or products
You will learn:
- Best posture for your activities of daily work.
- The effect on the body of chronic or repetitive strain.
- How to adjust and position your equipment.
- Best work station design.
- Break frequency.
A report can be included if requested covering hazards & risks, alterations made and further recommendations for each employee for a small fee.
There is no charge for these standard assessments, suitable for users without any major problems.
The charge for an advanced assessment if needed to tailor for someone with an illness, disability or ongoing musculoskeletal symptoms is £100. A detailed report would be included for this level too. This does not a minimal fee for travel expenses if outside a ten-mile radius.
