Keep The Upper Hand
Physios know all about bad backs, strained shoulders, tight necks and sore legs.
And these are just some of the things we suffer with, from spending all day manipulating mechanics, bending builders, releasing roofers and needling nurses.
We also know how hard it is when these ailments stop us doing our job and the effect that has on our pockets.
If you’re self-employed, the reality is that if you’re unable to work then you’re probably not earning. For many self-employed people this a scary scenario that most of us ignore, but unfortunately things can, and do, go wrong.
This isn’t the time to panic though – all you need to do is give us a call.
If you’re paying for the treatment yourself there is a cost for the physiotherapy treatment plan but you will get back to work sooner than without it.
We always recommend that you get treated as soon as you feel something isn’t right as that prevention is better than cure.
This could mean that you won’t have to stop working and can carry on with business as usual (bearing in mind the advice your physio gave to reduce the chances of the problem occurring again).
Better still, come for an MoT.
This is a one-hour assessment during which one of our highly trained physios will evaluate your alignment, accumulated damage, weaknesses and imbalances.
Feedback is given on how to improve which should mean that you never get the “twinges” in the first place.
And you can pay for all of this through your business!
We provide businesses large and small with a wide variety of help from ergonomic assessments, manual-handling training, driving positions and toolbox talks to treatments from physiotherapy and massage to podiatry and Alexander technique training.
Join our “Upper Hand” group and we’ll keep you informed with handy hints & tips on how to stay in good working order.
We will keep them short – we know you want to keep busy.
