Mean number of days lost per employee with a back problem 18.9 days in a 12 month period.

The cost to industry in lost production related to back pain is estimated to be at least £5.1 billion per annum. HSE Epidemiology and Medical Statistics Unit 2005

COST BENEFIT OF OCCUPATIONAL PHYSIOTHERAPY

Research has shown that prompt physiotherapy treatment can effectively treat musculoskeletal disorders thus reducing the cost of employee sickness absence.

Prompt treatment without NHS waiting time can keep employees at work avoiding costs of sickness absence.

Treatment of conditions early, at the acute stage, when there is a greater chance of complete recovery can avoid sickness absence and possibly ill health early retirement.

Provision of specific work related advice work helps keep employees at work at the same time as managing their musculoskeletal problem.

Work related advice can help prevent recurrence of the problem.
