Be at the fore front of your profession and provide top class quality Pilates services to your workforce from experts in health care provision.
Workplace and work force well being is a major concern and a relative small outlay for prevention can reap major rewards in preventing or minimising repetitive stress injuries, improving workforce well being and encourages a healthy work place environment.
Core Fusion is able to provide you with information and guidance to suit your requirements. Our range of services includes:
- On site Pilates classes to your workforce
- Postural assessments and advise on stress minimisation
- Advise specific to your work environment and tips that are user friendly and don’t take time away from your work. They may include sitting up and stretching each time you change computer program or standing up or sitting up straight when you answer the phone so you break habitual postural patterns and therefore decrease stress on the body.
All services can be negotiated dependant on what you require and we can arrange a meeting to discuss what may be most suitable.
Alternatively we can offer services here at our Wanneroo studio that are tailor made to address specific issues or needs utilising the specialist Pilates equipment – that may be an early morning session pre work / lunch time session / after work so your workforce can enjoy optimum health and reduce the risk of injury.
Remember sedentary jobs such as admin carry a high risk of repetitive strain issues due to long hours in prolonged sustained posture – tendonitis and postural dysfunction versus those in heavy manual work who have higher risk of more specific injury such as disc/ shoulder and back strain.

Low Back Pain in Australian Adults:
The Economic Burden
This paper reports the results of a “cost-of-illness” study of low back pain (LBP) in Australian adults. It estimates the direct cost of LBP in 2001 to be AU$1.02 billion. Approximately 71% of this amount is for treatment by chiropractors, general practitioners, massage therapists, physiotherapists and acupuncturists. However, the direct costs are minor compared to the indirect costs of AU$8.15 billion giving a total cost of AU$9.17 billion. LBP in Australian adults represents a massive health problem with a significant economic burden. This burden is so great that it has compelling and urgent ramifications for health policy, planning and research. This study identifies that research should concentrate on both direct but particularly the indirect costs including cost-effective management regimes that encourage an early return to duties.
