At Your Workplace
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/osteopathic 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 & Osteopathic services and corporate care packages.
Chiropractic & Osteopathic treatment is extremely popular and 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 or Osteopath for workstation assessments?
Chiropractors & Osteopaths 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 Spine & Posture Health Checks
A spine and posture health check is a 10-15 minute appointment with one of our Chiropractors or Osteopaths at a convenient location within your workplace. The screening will begin with the chiropractor/osteopath 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/Osteopath believes that 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/Osteopathy cannot help, advice will be given as to where the employee can seek care more appropriate to them.
These health checks 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/Osteopathic 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.
