Physiotherapy


Work Fit’s Chartered Physiotherapists work with employers to improve productivity and cut sickness absence by improving the overall fitness and flexibility of one of your most valuable assets – your staff.

Specialists in occupational health

Early intervention to tackle muscle and joint pain is crucial to maintaining productivity and work attendance. Work Fit's expert physiotherapy services, delivered on-site and at our Leeds clinics, provide fast, effective treatment and advice for both employees and employers.

Vocational rehabilitation

Musculoskeletal pain is the most frequent reason for staff taking sick leave. At Work Fit we are experts in getting employees back to work early, using a combination of clinical treatment, exercises, graded exposure, work hardening, psychological support, phased return and workplace advice.

Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) – in clinic or on-site

This service is specifically for employers and Occupational Health Physicians who may require more specialist advice on an employee's capability to undertake their work.
