TRADIES NATIONAL HEALTH MONTH is here
Tradies’ National Health Month aims to raise awareness of the risks posed to those who work in trade occupations—among individuals, their families, employers and the wider community.
While we’ve seen improvements, Australia’s trade industry continues to have among the highest health and safety issues of any sector. Time off work due to poor health and injury has a significant impact on families, businesses, communities, the health system and the economy. This impact will grow if we don’t take steps to change behaviour.
Physiotherapy has more than just tradies’ backs
Tradies need to make their health the most important part of their toolkit. Preventive treatment to reduce the risk of injury is just as important as seeking help when things do go wrong. This is where physiotherapy comes in.
From musculoskeletal support, physiotherapists extend their care to chronic health impacts, like heart disease and diabetes, and the lesser-known pelvic floor issues men face. Physiotherapists are experts in helping to reduce the alarmingly common health and safety issues associated with working in labour intensive industries, preventing injury and also getting people back to work quickly.
