Many local companies provide physiotherapy services for their employees through Viney Hall Physiotherapy. Everybody benefits from this arrangement:

Employers are happy that employees are kept at work with minimal time off sick, reducing costs and keeping good productivity. Employees are restored to full fitness in the quickest possible time, getting them out of pain and happier at work.

Local employers including Watts Industrial Tyres, Watts Urethane Products, Berwin Industrial Polymers, BASF Recycling Ltd, Glatfelter UK Ltd, NHS Staff Lottery, Gloucestershire County Council and Forest of Dean District Council, regularly use the services of Viney Hall Physiotherapy. Referrals by email from Managers, Occupational Health and HR departments enable quick appointments so that employees are seen as soon as they need attention. The physiotherapist will treat the condition and give advice on any changes that would be beneficial to avoid further injury or discomfort. Feedback is given by email or telephone to the manager, and good communication is paramount to the effectiveness of the service.

We provide training in Manual Handling and can assess workstations for employees both on the shop floor and those using display screen equipment. Visits to factories are often arranged to look at the work set-ups for individuals in order to facilitate their recovery and to avoid further problems.

Manual Handling training can be provided on-site and is structured to be relevant to the workers and their particular jobs. The benefit of using a physiotherapist for this training is her enhanced understanding of the body and how injuries occur. We cover everything you need to know so you can gain your manual handling certificate and meet the requirements of the Manual Handling Operations 1992 Regulations. The sessions are informal, relaxed, relevant, interactive, and practical.

Display Screen Equipment (DSE) assessments can be arranged for individuals who are complaining of neck pain, headaches, backache, wrist or arm pain, repetitive strain and other work-related upper limb disorders (WRULD). In many instances, there is an immediate improvement with minor adjustments advised by an experienced physiotherapist.
