Back in Action UK, the national specialist Occupational Physiotherapy company, has launched a new product designed to provide employees with specialist occupational musculoskeletal treatment and support remotely, either by phone or video.
myprivatephysio is the latest addition to the company’s flexible benefits programme and provides companies with a low-cost option that provides quick and easy access to a private specialist through PhysioFast, reducing absence and providing early intervention to reduce risk of long-term conditions. In addition, the service will link into Back In Actions occupational products and expertise to provide workplace recommendations and support.
Back in Action UK advise that they can demonstrate from their own experience that between 40-50% of musculoskeletal issues can be resolved without the requirement for face to face physiotherapy. With this in mind the benefits of the approach are; a reduction in the length of time employees need to take from work to attend appointments, reduced spend on other benefits that provide face to face physio, and ensuring better outcomes by including an occupational focus in the patient journey.
Gary Peace, Business Development Director at Back In Action UK, said:
“We have launched this new product in response to continuing market demand for flexible products. It is a great way for companies to bring proven musculoskeletal solutions into their business at a relatively low cost and has the added benefit that all recommendations will be discussed with employers to ensure best possible outcomes.
“We are committed to providing innovative and transformative services that are designed to meet our patient and client’s needs and we believe that this service will deliver real value.”
