Maintaining a safe, comfortable, & efficient workspace.

Our specialist occupational health and ergonomics physiotherapy offers a holistic approach to physiotherapy treatment.

If you have staff who are regularly off work with pain, or regularly reporting pain that they feel is aggravated by their role, then we can help.

By working closely with HR departments and line managers, we aim to provide practical adjustments to improve work satisfaction for the individual, as well as improve efficiency and productivity for the organisation.

Workplace and DSE assessments

Our occupational health physiotherapists use their anatomy knowledge as well as movement observational skills to demonstrate association between symptoms and possible aggravating work tasks.

Whether the work is heavy and repetitive or static and sedentary, cost-effective solutions can be found by educating staff on how to perform work duties more ergonomically, and using smart work behaviour such as task rotation and improved posture – not just recommending new equipment.

Physiotherapy workstation assessment

What we can offer

With experience of conducting more than 300 workplace assessments in a wide variety of industries, the specialist occupational health physiotherapist at Marple Physiotherapy offers:

  • Office workstation (DSE) assessments for a range of complex conditions with a follow-up report for the business.
  • Group seminars on best practice on DSE workstation set-ups.
  • Manual Handling training, using HSE models such as the MAC, ART and RAPP tools.
  • Ergonomic vehicle assessments for high mileage drivers struggling to complete their quota.
  • Workplace assessments at mechanised and manual production line industries such as distribution centres, warehouses and packaging companies.
  • Return to work workplace adjustments assessments. If an employee becomes disabled, or develops a health condition due to illness or injury, the employer is legally required to make reasonable adjustments to enable return to work, or to help them remain in work – we can advise on this.
  • Assessments available for individuals as well as multiple employees. Reduced rates available for multiple assessments booked on the same day.

These can all be complemented by in-clinic treatment for the employee at Marple Physiotherapy, to ensure a full recovery and continued attendance at work.

Occupational physiotherapy can typically produce a return on investment for an organisation of £3 for every £1 spent, by reducing sickness absence and improving workrate efficiency.

Here's what our clients say.

Rose-Marie W. ★★★★★ I saw Nicky for pain in my c section scar which was affecting me on a daily basis. She was great at coming up with different treatments (exercises, physical manipulation and a cream) which have improved the pain I was experiencing.Helen Q. ★★★★★ Liz and colleagues have been treating my son for many years and are fantastic with him. Although his condition will never change keeping him free from discomfort and moving the muscles he can’t use are invaluable to his quality of life. We can’t thank and praise them enough not only for their knowledge but for their care, commitment and respect shown to us allSte W. ★★★★★ I went to Marple Physiotherapy with what I assumed was a sore neck, but it turned out to be my shoulder. After many sleepless nights in agony I went to see Liz, who after two visits got me back to normal. Everything from what she did in the practice to the exercises see gave me to do at home is geared up to promote a speedy recovery and her knowledge is incredible.Can’t recommend them enough.Andreea D. ★★★★★ Excellent input from Liz during my recovery after rather complex knee ligament injury. She provided step-by-step guidance with regards to specific exercises for every stage of the recovery alongside therapeutical ultrasound and massage. Highly recommendedEmily R. ★★★★★ From the get go, I have been really impressed with my treatment at Marple Physio and would recommend it to anyone with back troubles. The initial consultation was so thorough, I left feeling positive that I could improve my chronic pain. I really appreciated that Liz was able to explain the reasoning behind my long term back troubles (over compensation and shortened muscles etc.) She has given me a proactive treatment plan that I never got previously from other establishments and I have seen an improvement in my condition after only a few sessions.Simon T. ★★★★★ A massive thank you to Liz for getting me to the start line of the Manchester Marathon! Picking up an injury half way through training I feared the worst for the big day, but a swift treatment cycle had me back up and running in a couple of weeks. I had plantar fasciitis which I have heard keep people out for months on end so such a huge thank you for the wonderful care provided to help me back to my feet.Adam F. ★★★★★ I self-referred to Liz after an episode of chopping firewood resulted in a bad case of tennis elbow with constant pain and a complete absence of strength in my right arm. The combination of physical therapy over a course of weeks, combined with effective exercises for home, has all but cured it, in a surprisingly short time. In the process of treating my arm, Liz also diagnosed some of my long term back problems and set me on a course to strengthen the right muscles to counter those issues. Great experience and would wholly recommend.Christopher L. ★★★★★ Brilliant, extremely knowledgeable and caring. They put me at ease which is very difficult when you have a very painful back. Everything from the therapy provided to the online programme they use to send you exercises is first class.Kieran B. ★★★★★ I had physio on my shoulder with Liz and she is very friendly and an expert at what she does. She was quick to diagnose the issue and give me the appropriate exercises that helped fix the problem. Would definitely recommend.js_loader
