Occupational Medicine

Occupational medicine is a category of medicine that involves medical studies and practices that have to do with injuries or illnesses that occur in or because of a patient's place of employment.

This means a person who practices or studies occupational medicine cares for patients with injuries or health conditions that are directly related to his work and work environments. Likewise, a person in this field may study the manner in which a person’s health may affect their ability to work efficiently.

A health care professional who specialises in occupational medicine may focus not only on treating work-related injuries, diseases, and conditions, but also on preventing them in the first place. 

There are many types of conditions that can be treated or prevented through the application of occupational medicine. For example, an office worker who spends much of his time typing documents and handling other computer tasks may suffer from repetitive stress injuries. A health care professional in the occupational medicine field may treat him for such injuries. In some cases, a person in this field may even work to help prevent workers from developing repetitive stress injuries instead of treating them afterwards.

Our consultants will be happy to discuss any questions that may arise and are experienced in diagnosing and treating any work related health issues. 

This will include not only the medical reason behind them but also any underlying factors that may not have been addressed with the employer. Our team aim to return each patient back to work as soon as possible with a clean bill of health and advice on how to avoid the initial problem in future.
