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.

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.

I received fantastic service from Marple Physiotherapy and my physiotherapist Nicky. The causes of my hip injury were investigated and clearly explained, and I was given several recovery exercises to follow. All in all a very rigorous, personable, and tailored experience. Would highly recommend.

I went to Marple Physiotherapy after I slipped on the ice with my dog and hurt my neck/shoulder. After many sleepless nights in agony I went to see Liz, who over a few visits worked wonders and had me pain free and most importantly got me my full movement back in my right arm. 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, would definitely suggest a visit if you have any aches or pains.

Before lockdown I started treatment with Julie on my C-section scar. I have suffered with pain, aggressively red looking scar which was hypertrophic for a year. After a discussion and 3 sessions with Julie I saw an improvement. We did specific massage, which involved super gentle movement technique, along with an ultrasound treatment. Julie explained exactly how to treat my scar at home so I could continue with the movement technique myself.The scar is now less aggressive looking and in parts starting to turn skin colour and has more movement all along the scar. Although not 100% pain free just yet, it is a massive improvement.If you have any scar pain then I highly recommend having a chat with Julie and she can talk you through what treatment is best suited to you.
