  The 'FIT-FOR-WORK' Programme  

Physiomatters (London) Ltd has put together a programme addressing the needs of the long term injured combining physiotherapy, rehabilitation, life coaching and nutrition. Based on our extensive work in the treatment of long-term sport injuries we have devised a programme called FIT FOR WORK.

Aimed at health companies and large corporate clients we aim to find a solution where others have been unable to make progress.

There are certain patients that have problems recovering from long-term injury (medical operations, road traffic accidents, pre-existing condition etc). There are sometime barriers to patient’s recovery, mental barriers caused by the trauma of the accident, physical barriers caused by the pain they are suffering. Physical barriers and mental barriers to recovery can also be exacerbated by poor diet and nutrition.

We have put together a team of experts including the clinical director of Physiomatters, a bio-kineticist, a life coach and a dietician.

We make an assessment of the patient’s condition with input from all the clinician taking into account previous history and treatments and devise a programme based around their perceived needs. An example programme would be tailor-made for individual patient but a sample treatment programme would be as follows:

  Treatment Programme  


8 physiotherapy sessions
10 rehabilitation sessions
5 life-coaching sessions
3 nutritional sessions

By combining the various disciplines the patient is give the maximum possibilities for recovery. At the end of the treatment a full report and analysis is produced a sent to the client and the patients.
