On a grizzly Saturday in March, a team of eight colleagues from Back in Action UK came together in Nechells, Birmingham to makeover the Fareshare office. The space was looking dull and tired an in need of some TLC. Fortunately, for Fareshare it was given a fantastic overhaul by a dedicated team of volunteers. They painted all the walls in the lounge and main office white and glossed the woodwork, as an extra they painted the kitchen and stairwell too! Two huge Fareshare logos were painted beautifully onto the walls to help to demonstrate a more professional look. The bench at the front of the office was sprayed red, with two tyres spray painted green. The tyres will be filled with flowers to help bring the front of the building to life in line with the brand colours. To top it off, as the team were trained physiotherapists, they were able to leave their mark on the office by re-arranging the layout so that its more ergonomic for the staff who work there. Well done team!

The staff are always courteous and friendly while maintaining a professional approach. This service has raised employee morale and shown our company in a caring, supportive light. I would not hesitate to recommend Back in Action UK to any company who needed a physiotherapy service.”
“We have enjoyed working with the Back In Action UK’s physiotherapists during the formation of the manual handling risk assessment report… should be highly commended.”
“I wanted to personally thank Back in Action UK for the work you have put in and I genuinely believe that without the treatment I would not be able to work now.”
“The service provision is very user friendly, no long drawn out processes and form filling required as appointments are handled through a secure, easy to understand website and Contract Managers have direct access and flow of two way information relevant to employees working conditions with the physiotherapist.”
“I was very pleased to find out we had an onsite physiotherapist as I’d been suffering with some lower back pain at work and needed to have it seen to. I found Amy to be both approachable and friendly and also very professional about her job. Within only 4 sessions she’d managed to get rid of my back pain and also gave same great advice and tips of what exercises to do to keep the pain at bay, and as she is on site weekly, I know now that I can return if I have any other muscle aches and pains”
“Within my first session, my physiotherapist was able to identify and then treat the problem with my back. They then she showed me various exercises that would prevent recurrence. She is very professional and very friendly. I would definitely recommend Back in Action UK to anyone in need of Physiotherapy in the workplace. Thanks again for all your help”
“Since the early part of last year I started to have a problem with my right shoulder, the Back in Action UK team started a course of treatment on my shoulder and advised me on how to set up my work station which was the suspected cause of my problem. It is very handy that I can have treatment while at work and to my shoulder this saves me and the company a great deal of time.”
“Working with Back in Action UK, we developed a simple procedure for swift action and constructive utilisation of the Back in Action UK physiotherapy service.
In the four years of utilization of this resource, I am 100% certain that the benefits of time and cost savings were clearly apparent with additional benefits such as better moral among employees. For instance, having a full crew and less dependence on agency use had a positive impact on team morale productivity. Back in Action UK fully acknowledge the importance of working with management with company AND employee interests at heart.
My personal belief of the “Back in Action UK” program is it is essential to an industry that requires its work force to carry out duties of a physical nature, the expertise and speed of which services can be delivered ensures an active, well motivated, high-morale work force, keeping training and agency employee costs down.”
