The benefits of musculoskeletal screening in the work environment
In 2016, a musculoskeletal screening survey took place which had lasting improvements for 32 employees. The survey was conducted by Connect Health, within a large public sector body. Each candidate was given:
- A pre-screening questionnaire;
- A full, 40 minute, musculoskeletal physiotherapy assessment;
- A 20 minute long case review after a month’s participation in the study; and
- A final assessment (30 minutes) after three months.
