Body@Work Physiotherapy is passionate about creating a workplace wellness philosophy and injury prevention.

A workplace culture that is proactive and supports the health and wellness of their workers is key to optimise productivity and performance.

The question is: Is your health ethic as strong as your work ethic?

Overuse injuries and problems related to working in poor postures costs workplaces and insurance companies millions every year. The fact is, not all work practices and associated injuries can be ergonomically resolved – think of your dentist, who spends their day working around a small hole.

Workers need to be empowered with both the knowledge and the skills to maintain their bodies in good health to remain employable. Studies show that workplaces that encourage regular movement/exercise for their employees have improved productivity and reduced incidence of sick days and workplace injuries.
