Our Gold Coast physios at Burleigh Heads, have been performing pre-employment screening for various Gold Coast recruitment companies, since 2007. Our assessments screen the ability for an individual to perform the physical demands of their job; ultimately reducing workplace injuries and lost time. We perform musculoskeletal and cardiovascular screening, and this can be used to help the employer work out the risk of injury for any prospective employee. Strength assessments will also be included to ensure the individual has the physical capability to work. The screening process also enables us to educate the client regarding any risk factors that they have, and how to try and correct these deficits themselves.

Benefits of Pre-Employment screening to the employer include:

  • Identification of risk factors to injury that an individual may possess prior to commencing employment.
  • Confirmation that the individual has adequate strength to complete job requirements, ensuring functional competence for work tasks resulting in less injuries.
  • Provides a base record of pre-employment capacity affording some protection against false claims of injury
  • Helps to identify when a subsequent injury has recovered (i.e. return to pre-injury state)

Pre-employment screening in conjunction with the implementation of education sessions or other activities may also be useful in

  • Reducing lost time injuries
  • Reducing insurance premiums
  • Reducing WorkCover claims

If your Gold Coast business is interested in screening prospective employees, contact our admin team at [email protected], or call us on 07 5535 5218.

Our Response to Covid-19

This page is up to date to our best knowledge, however, this is a rapidly evolving situation so we apologise for any potential delay in updating this information.

We want to reassure all our patients that we are following stringent infection control procedures in our clinic, and screen all people coming into the clinic, to exclude any patients that have any signs or symptoms consistent with Covid-19, as well as screening any patients that should be in isolation ie recently returned from overseas, or have been advised to isolate due to recent exposure with a known Covid-19 patient.

All our staff have now completed the Department of Health Covid-19 Infection Control Training.

What are we doing to minimise risk?

  • Screening patients for risk factors over the phone or through text messages before they attend appointments. Those with risk factors or symptoms are advised not to attend & to seek medical advice.
  • Hand sanitiser station at the front of the building must be used before you enter.
  • Following stringent infection control measures within the clinic. This includes
    • Disinfecting all beds, door handles, EFTPOS machine before and after each patient use.
    • Linen changed between each patient and commonly touched surfaces through the practice are cleaned regularly throughout the day.
    • Minimising the distances between clients in the waiting room- some chairs are outside undercover.
  • We have advised our team members not to come to work if they have cold or flu-like symptoms.
  • We are following all Department of Health recommendations for our type of business.

On the 30th March 2020 – the Australian government issued a statement that “People aged over 70, aged over 60 with pre-existing conditions, or Indigenous people aged over 50 should stay home wherever possible for their own protection.”

The decision to come in for physiotherapy treatment really is an individual one – if you feel that your treatment is medically necessary, and are comfortable with the risks of leaving your home and coming to physiotherapy, then rest assured that when you attend our physiotherapy clinic, we are following our strict infection control processes and doing everything we can to minimise your risk whilst in our care. However, we completely understand if you are not comfortable with coming in for treatment.

TELEHealth Consultations

We are offering telehealth consults and home visits (where suitable) for patients who cannot attend our clinic.
