This is the foundation for your workplace injury prevention and management strategy. For musculoskeletal injuries in the workplace, early intervention can make a big difference in injury recovery time.
Our onsite treatment service can also be used to help workers already on a WorkCover claim get back to work sooner.
Onsite care = early intervention
The sooner an injured worker is treated, the better their chance of recovering faster and returning to normal duties. By having us onsite, your workers can visit our treatment room and return to their station without leaving the premises.
Treatments that our workplace health providers utilise include massage, musculoskeletal release, dry needling, functional integrative needling, taping, fascial release, rehabilitation, TENS (electrotherapy) and electro needling.
Our workplace health providers understand the psychological impact of workplace injuries, and the stigma that can be attached. We look to instil patient trust and confidence, and encourage positive outlooks, which can often result in better treatment outcomes.
Why have onsite treatment?
- Injured workers can access healthcare immediately
- Prevent minor injuries from becoming LTIs or claims through early intervention
- Improve morale and maintain a healthy workforce
- Decrease absenteeism
- Get injured workers back to work sooner
- Decrease in WorkCover premiums
Virtual consultations are available
Most workplaces benefit from some form of onsite treatment. Depending on the number of workers and shifts it may be required anywhere from weekly to three times a week.
Our preference is to treat patients onsite, but where this is not possible or appropriate – due to COVID-19 restrictions, urgent care needs or remote/offsite patients – we offer virtual consultations through a secure online platform.

Since we began using WHA onsite services, the staff culture around injury management and reporting of incidents, injuries and near misses has improved. Our staff are engaging in the support we offer to return them to, or retain them at work.
