Tip 32 - Programme Your Occupational Health from Sorry! We're Closed is a must read if you are looking to use or are using a generic Occupational Health Provider ... here's a snippet.
Part of the Occupational Health Nurse's role includes providing Health Screening Services. This includes assessing/ interviewing an employee who has come back to work following a MSD. Remember the title of Tip 10? It was Recognise Experts from the Jack of All Trades. This is by no means to put down the Profession of Nursing, but this is a simple fact. Nurses are NOT Experts in Musculoskeletal Medicine. I will ask this question. If they are NOT Experts in MSDs then why the hell are they always employed to screen an employee’s MSD?
What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a drug-free, non-invasive manual therapy that aims to improve health across all body systems by manipulating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework
An Osteopath focuses on the joints, muscles and spine to provide treatment which positively effects the body's nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems
Manual therapy means that both diagnosis and treatment are carried out with the hands
Using their hands, Osteopaths apply a range of techniques to help reduce pain, increase joint mobility, relieve muscle tension and enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, helping the body’s own healing mechanism. They may also provide advice on lifestyle issues, diet and exercise.
Most people who see an Osteopath do so for help with conditions that affect the muscles, bones and joints, such as: lower back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain and elbow pain (for example, tennis elbow) arthritis, problems with the pelvis, hips and legs, sports injuries as well as muscle and joint pain associated with driving, work or pregnancy
