The CrookBack Clinic is a musculo-skeletal health, fitness and wellbeing program designed to
It is my firm belief that this is a program for all staff - the risk is so high.
Ideally you can get sections to do it so the manager or supervisor can get a feel for the enormity of the problem and shoulder some of the responsibility for managing it.
I can conduct 4 sessions per day - starting at 7.30 am. Each session takes 2 hours.
If the area is large enough I can handle 25 - 30 people at a time
20 - 25 is ideal so I can give more individual attention.
I take people through the musculo-skeletal risk factor profile so they can get an idea of how weak and tight they are.
I provide you with an audit report, including the scores of each person.
That way you can begin to work with those who are already experiencing pain and those at grave risk of becoming a workers compensation statistic.
If the programs is rolled out section by section you can use the audit report as a management tool to lower the risk.
Based on my experience, participants will willingly agree to take part in a 10 minute stretching and strengthening session each day. However, this will only happen if supervisors are given a key performance indicator (KPI) to drive the program. Ideally they will want to demonstrate that after 6 months their staff are stronger, more flexible and less pained that they were when the program first started.
Rewards and incentives can be built into the program.
Participants in pain and at grave risk will willingly agree to take part in several more intensive sessions each week to get themselves back into better condition. This program can be supervised by someone like yourself. I provide training and accreditation for people to do this work.
Give me a call and I'll outline my presentation fee schedule.
The audit report is $2.20 per person.
I supply you the results in graphic format and also pass on the spreadsheet of individual results so you can do the follow-up work.
CONCLUSION - investment versus cost
The aim of the program is to reduce your worker's compensation costs of musculo-skeletal dysfunction by 80%. In essence you're investing a small amount of money up front to save the high cost of worker's compensation arrangements further down the track.
You will be able to track dysfunction and incidents by manager and supervisor and dramatically reduced your costs.

The costs of poor musculo-skeletal health are escalating in many of the organisations I work with. Some of them are visible - in workers compensation costs - others are hidden in presenteeism and absenteeism.
I'd welcome the opportunity to work with you in dramatically lowering those costs.
