Good Health Centre can help your business reduce the amount of time lost to sickness absence caused by injuries or back and muscle pain.
Musculoskeletal injuries such as back, muscle pain and repetitive strain injury (RSI) are the main causes of sickness absence in the UK. Back pain alone results in 120 million days’ absence each year. This costs British industry over £6 billion in lost production, with almost 75% of this due to time lost from work.
Further, 30% of employers’ accident litigation cases are associated with back pain.
We can help with musculoskeletal therapy treatments that can often ease pain without the employee having to take any time off work. Some of the services and treatments provided here at the Good Health Centre are covered by insurance companies.
85% of employees referred to us for treatment complete their courses within five sessions. Around three quarters of these are able to remain at work while undergoing treatment, taking no sick leave. This contrasts with the traditional route of dealing with musculoskeletal injury through GP prescription and sick note, which often results in costly, long-term absence.
Our corporate clients include:
West Yorkshire Playhouse
Phoenix Dance Company
Northern School of Contemporary Dance
and RJC Dance.
