Onsite Physio is a solution many businesses don’t know they need. Issues such as downtime, absenteeism, soft tissue injury, worker discomfort and lost productivity can all be reduced with quality onsite Physiotherapy.
How many workers have been sent down the workers compensation track, only to be off work for extended periods? Did you know the likelihood of an injured worker ever coming back to work after being off for 3 months is 50%? Poorly managed injuries could be costing your business hundreds of thousands.
AXIS onsite Physio acts as a triage system, advising the organisation and worker on the best course of action for musculoskeletal disorders. With appropriate early intervention and assessing whether the worker is safe to undertake their duties, most workers don’t need to go down the expensive route of seeing doctors, getting scans and being off work.
By having the expertise of an AXIS physio onsite, you can get a trusted professional opinion. AXIS onsite physios know your workplace inside and out, and you can be sure they will be utilising your workers to their best abilities.

Below are 8 Reasons Why You Need an AXIS onsite physio:
1) Improve Your Bottom-Line
It’s no secret that if workers recover at work, expenses will be reduced. Even after paying for AXIS onsite Physiotherapy!
2) Improve Workplace Morale
Giving your employees access to an onsite physio is a great way to boost morale within the workplace.

By having effective treatment and keeping the worker active in the workplace, you can bet on an improved safety and rehab culture, which means happier workers!
