The relationship between mental health and work is complex. Both part-time and full-time employment can improve an individual’s overall mental health by helping to foster a healthy sense of self, develop a stronger personal identity and improve self-esteem. Back2Work’s team help job seekers sustain – and maintain – meaningful employment.
October is National Safe Work Month, a time to emphasise the significance of safety in all workplaces. The health and safety of Australian workplaces remains a top priority for employers.
With one in five Australians being affected by mental health, it’s more important than ever to raise awareness of mental wellbeing.
When most people think of physiotherapy they think of a clinic room, a treatment plinth, and a painful massage. Clearly this was on the mind of the Prime Minister when he addressed the nation on Tuesday night.
While manual therapy treatment is what most people remember (or in some cases would rather forget), the real value of our treatment comes from the advice, prescriptive exercise and activity modification that forms part of every successful physiotherapy intervention.
There is strong clinical evidence to show that effective intervention can be delivered through via virtual healthcare, such as The Better Health Generation’s Video Call platform. Some examples of where our Video Call can be effectively used include:
- Preventative stretching and strengthening programs to maintain health and wellbeing of your workers whilst they are working from home.
- Programs to assess and manage common musculoskeletal injuries like lower back pain, rotator cuff injuries, muscle tears.
- Graded, guided exercise programs for all neurological conditions. We can upskill any care worker of family member to assist if required.
- Cardiovascular programs the help people return to optimum function after cardiac events.
As an added benefit, our Video Call healthcare allows us to draw in the skills and experience from across our comprehensive allied health team. This means we can align clients to physios with the right skills and experience to manage the condition most effectively. It also means that we can draw in from our other disciplines. We can apply a team-care approach to client management instantly
Now is not the time to compromise your mental and physical wellbeing. Video Call is an excellent alternative to face-to-face continuity of care during the coronavirus social distancing and isolation requirements. It’s medical-grade virtual healthcare, meaning your information is secure and encrypted (unlike Skype and FaceTime) and we can share tip sheets, documents, reports and merge other health supports into sessions for integrated care. It’s also simple to set up and use.
Our physio team is skilled and experienced in delivering services via Video Call. Social distancing does not mean that you have to deal with pain by yourself, or put your rehab on hold.
We are here to help. If you need physiotherapy services or to continue your care please reach out on 1300 97 95 93 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information head to our website www.back2work.com.au and click VIDEO CALL.
