Osteopathy at work

What impact do Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) have on your business?

With an estimated 11.6 million working days lost every year to work-related MSDs*, injury, damage or disorder of the joints or other tissues in the upper/lower limbs or the back, probably more than you think. And a reduced workforce, either due to MSD related absenteeism, or efficiency due to a diminished ability to work, may have huge repercussions for your business.

MSDs are the most common occupational illness in this country, affecting 1.1 million people a year. Your challenge as an employer is to ensure that your working practices and working environment promote a healthy working lifestyle to reduce absenteeism and create a more efficient workforce. With almost 80% of the population experiencing back pain at some point in their lives and MSD related absenteeism costing between £590 and £624 million every year to the economy, your employees’ flourishing wellbeing can be the strength of your business.
