It is well publicised that keeping a workplace healthy and moving can easily reduce the chance of long-term absenteeism.
The White House Clinic can provide a personalised Occupational Physiotherapy service that will help keep your workforce as healthy and as safe as possible.
With the recent COVID-19 situation and many people turning to work from home, there is an increased urgency to understand and manage musculoskeletal postural conditions like back and neck pain. The White House Clinic team can help you and your workforce through this, and offer specific advice to assist with issues that occur from your working environment.

Our Occupational Health Service is individually tailored for everyone we work with. Offering a range of services to large national employers, regional companies, smaller local businesses and individuals, in the workplace and at home, we can provide a specific, highly trained physiotherapist or specialist to look after your requirements, helping to keep your workforce as fit and healthy as possible.

Typical services include: massage to reduce tension, manual therapy to help recover from injury, rehabilitation exercises, return to work liaison and planning, ergonomic review and set up.

The White House Clinic brings a combination of clinical excellence and variety to our physiotherapy. We offer our clients superior treatments, at your convenience, with the peace of mind you get from a friendly, professional company that works alongside national insurers and healthcare providers.
The White House Clinic Approach
Our specialists work on a simple strategy in delivering a clear and effective service to our clients:
1. Prevention and Education
Whilst physiotherapists predominantly treat pain and injury, they are also ideally positioned to assess for risk of injury before it happens. Repetitive strain injuries are often preventable with correction of working practices. Accident risks can be reduced through risk assessment. If problems can be prevented before they even occur, the benefits are exponential.
If a client attends to see one of our physiotherapists with musculoskeletal symptoms or an injury, the first thing we do is a full and detailed assessment of the injury, We can then establish the severity and irritability of the problem and provide immediate guidance on activity levels, exercises and fitness for work.
3. Treatment and rehabilitation
Our team are highly skilled in offering a wide variety of clinical treatment and we pride ourselves on our manual therapy skills. We also offer patient specific exercise advice, as we know a one size fits all approach does not provide the outcomes we desire. We aim for a quick and effective recovery through our rehabilitation strategy.
Once a client has overcome an injury it is all too easy to return to normal and forget about it. We find that education and training are vital at this stage in order to prevent any future reoccurrence of the problem.
5. Shared goals
When it comes to Occupational Health, we all have the same shared goals in mind. The aim of the employer, the employee and our Physiotherapy team is to help recover from injury and be fit and healthy for work. We are highly motivated in maximising your employee’s health and well-being, which will lead to improved job satisfaction, reduced sickness absence and improved productivity.
