A thorough musculoskeletal screening is often required by employers to be carried out as part of beginning a new job.  At PhysioHealth we have experts in the field of occupational health and have been involved in pre-employment medicals for many years.  Our assessment will identify any areas of weakness or lack of flexibility that could predispose someone to developing a workplace injury.  A manual handling technique assessment is also a part of the assessment and corrections can be made if necessary to ensure safe lifting practices are maintained in the workplace. After the assessment recommendations are made in regards to corrective exercises that will address the areas of concern.  This will ensure the new employee significantly reduces the chance of developing an injury, both at work and at home.
