The cases we have handled so far ranges from simple to serious work related injuries, all were treated successfully without any surgeries

There are a lot of instances that you may incur injuries at work. As much as we want our working environment to be safe, we have to understand that there are situations where our safety and health are at risk.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) conducted their survey about work related injuries. According to their 2010-2011 survey results:

“The 127 335 serious claims represent an incidence rate of 12.2 serious claims per 1000 employees or a frequency rate of 7.3 serious claims per million hours worked.”

If you are in pain due to a work related injury, we can certainly help you with that. Action Health Centre has already helped many work-related-injury patients for years. The cases we have handled so far ranges from simple to serious work related injuries, all were treated successfully without any surgeries.

Here are some of the work-related pains that are most commonly complained:

  • Back injuries (sprains, strains, disc problems)
  • Neck injuries (sprains, strains, joint dysfunction)
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Cumulative trauma (Injuries acquired from repetitive physical activity like prolonged standing and many other work activities)
  • Headache (caused by muscle tension, joint dysfunction, or poor posture)
  • Bursitis
  • Tendinitis
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Extremity numbness and tingling
  • Knee, hip and joints injury

Some personal experiences:

After 12 years of vocal chord papillomas, I have had much symptoms reduced over the last 12 months of chiropractic care – Anthony

 

Since receiving chiropractic care, I’ve had no asthma, no hayfever and no back pain. – Damien

 

Before chiropractic care, I was tired, stiff and with sore back. I had swollen neck and had difficulty in turning my head properly. I also suffered from poor memory and occasional migraine headaches. Now, my head and shoulder mobility has improved and I’ve had no more migraines for the past 3 months of my care. My head is also no longer lopsided and my memory is better. – Julian

 

I haven’t had hay fever or cold and my muscles between the shoulder blades aren’t sore anymore. The power is on! – Danielle

 

Self experience speaks the truth. After my 1st chiropractic adjustment, back pain disappears. – Audy

 

I used to have headaches 3 times a week, stomach ache and period pain for more than 2 years. Hence, I couldn’t concentrate on work and study, couldn’t do sports or eat certain types of food. I now feel much better with no headaches, without having to take medication or injections. I am now more happy and have more energy. – Anita

 

I’ve noticed I’m stronger than before. I can stand on my feet much longer without back or leg pain. There is also a significant improvement on my posture. Throughout the period of my chiropractic care with Action Health, the experience has been caring and supportive. It has been a great experience for me. I feel great. – Therese

 

Effectiveness of Chiropractic Therapy:

Many state governments are sponsoring research studies about chiropractic care. The results prove that chiropractic treatments are always effective in treating the injuries at a lower cost compared to other treatments and methods.

To help you get fast recovery, the Chiropractic Doctor (Chiropractor) at Action Health Centre will teach you the importance of ergonomics. You will learn how to reduce unnecessary pressures. You will also be taught about the proper form of your body in cases that you need to lift heavy objects.

We do not simply stop the pain caused by the injury. We will also rehabilitate the affected part so that we can ensure complete recovery. Our prime goal here is to get you back at work. For this, chiropractic treatments and therapies continue to be one of the top options for treating work injuries.

Benefits of Corporate Wellness?

With health care expenditures soaring, there is increasing interest in workplace-based disease prevention and health promotion as a means of improving health while lowering costs.

Healthy Staff Equals Healthy Business

Does health matter to your business? It should! Your people are your greatest asset therefore, keeping them healthy and happy is paramount to your company’s success.

With corporate Australians working longer hours and dealing with greater levels of stress than ever before, it only makes perfect sense for a company to provide wellness strategies so as to retain their best people and ensure they are continually playing at the top of their game.

According to the Australian Institute of Management, “… pay is no longer the most important factor when attracting or retaining high performing staff.” In fact “… job satisfaction, new and interesting challenges, feeling valued and appreciated and the provision of work/life balance…” ranked far higher!

It is for this reason many progressive companies are giving back to their staff through lifestyle education, organised massages, group fitness sessions, health assessments and more.

And with lifestyle related illness now costing the Australian economy an estimated $21b, you have to ask yourself… Exactly how much are unhealthy staff members costing you?

Why Choose Action Health Centre to provide Corporate Wellness?

We understand that for some people making long-lasting, meaningful changes to their health can sometimes seem overwhelming and all too difficult. At Action Health Centre, they provide the opportunity to learn from some of Australia’s best health professionals through a variety of options. These include…

  • Detailed Health Assessments – ideal for unveiling prominent health issues within your organisation plus give your staff a heads up on what they need to work on. These give a quantitative “snap shot” and with reassessments quarterly (or whatever suits) they reveal the effectiveness of our wellness program. Recored and reported to you and the individual.
  • Measurable Changes To Your Employees – The best measure of success is when employees shout about their experience – and want to return for more. Over 99% of employees say Action Health Centre improved their overall health and wellbeing.
    Recent Pole shows only 58% of employees rate their health as either good to excellent. Working with Action Health Centre, this increases to over 99% of employees. More importantly, 9% of participants rate themselves at the outset as having ‘very poor’ health, yet Action Health Centre reduces this to 0%. This is no mean feat because it’s this population where most of your lost productivity and healthcare costs are being sunk. Reducing this has a dramatic effect on the bottom line and underlines the fact that Action Health Centre not only attracts large numbers of employees, it also engages the very people who need us most – those who are hard to motivate and move. We deliver them back to you healthy, happy and ready to perform at their best.
  • Seminars – to provide helpful, easy-to-use information ranging from work/life balance, to creating resilience, to healthy eating for busy corporates. These are all interactive and are hosted by renowned health experts (as opposed to ordinary personal trainers!).
