Workplace Services 

Since 2011 Kieser has been serving the needs of employees, employers and insurers in assisting injured workers to return to the workplace. Our underlying premise is that active rehabilitation and early intervention are the two most important elements in successfully assisting workers back to the workplace.

We work closely with our corporate clients establishing service level agreements that ensure: 

  • Ready access to physiotherapy services usually within 24 hours
  • Functional capacity assessments
  • Pre-employment screenings
  • Timely and evidence based reporting
  • Ongoing and open communication with return to work co-ordinators

Each Kieser centre is equipped with world class rehabilitation facilities that are not available in most allied health clinics. We are also one of the few physiotherapy groups to have partnered with DorsaVi, the developer and provider of the ViMove system used by clubs such as Richmond Football Club and Manchester United in evaluating injuries as well as determining readiness to return to play. We use the objective data from the DorsaVi system to augment our clinical reasoning from a diagnostic perspective as well as assessing readiness to return to work.

Early Intervention

According to Safe Work Australia, the total economic cost of work-related injuries and illnesses for the 2008-09 financial year is estimated to be $60.6 billion dollars. Numerous studies have shown the importance of early treatment in the facilitation of return to work and return to health outcomes. By taking the time to identify the warning signs and implement a proactive early intervention program, you are able to reduce the number of Work Safe claims.  At Kieser, we stress the importance of early physiotherapy and rehabilitation programs before the rise of a serious injury. Early intervention is about identifying and responding to warning signs and reports of incidents and accidents in the workplace. Early intervention and a focus on workplace rehabilitation can reduce the economic and human costs associated with workplace injuries. This is shown to reduce lost time, halve total claims cost, and have a major impact at reducing long-term off work claims.

As part of our process in treating workplace injury and sustained rehabilitation, Kieser also offers comprehensive gym programs designed to improve the health and wellness of employees. Our strength and conditioning centres are available to employees to prevent and rehabilitate from workplace injuries. Once a round of physiotherapy is completed, we recommend that our clients continue on with strength and conditioning programs as they are designed to work with the physiotherapy to keep the body strong and help prevent re-injury. 

We offer flexible membership options for employers to provide a comprehensive strength training program for their employee. Regardless of their skill or nature of injury, all workplace gym programs include 1:1 sessions with an exercise scientist to ensure they are confident on our machines and equipment.
