Early Intervention Programme

Help your employees manage their pain and discomfort promptly before it becomes a bigger issue and requires time off work. The Early Intervention (EI) Programme is your simple answer to effectively manage musculoskeletal issues impacting your workforce.   


  • Acting quickly when an employee has a musculoskeletal issue can help them remain at work and return to full fitness sooner. 
  • EI Programmes significantly reduce workplace costs resulting from pain, discomfort or injury and related absenteeism.
  • The Programme enables a direct referral to a physiotherapist who are the experts in managing musculoskeletal conditions.
  • Improves your employee’s health and well-being.


A simple online Managers Booking Form will initiate the EI Programme for your employee. Our team will contact the employee or manager to arrange an appointment, and an initial assessment with a physio will be scheduled, all within 24 hours in most cases. We will keep you up-to-date along the way and provide a written report, so you have all the details you need to support your employee at work while they rehabilitate. In most cases 1-3 sessions of physio are all that is needed.


The Programme includes a Case Manager as your single point of contact for issues and management of care. 

The Case Manager will assist with:

  • Triaging referrals when appropriate to prevent unnecessary treatment costs.
  • Identifying potential issues with return to work.
  • Reporting and feedback to support your employee’s rehabilitation at work.
  • Assisting with a management plan if the condition is unresolved within the scope of the programme.
  • Liaising with ACC or third party advisors regarding ACC claims when required.


We are able to provide national coverage through our own Habit Rehabilitation clinics and a long-standing reliable network of sub-contractors. 

Having this comprehensive network means:

  • A seamless and consistent approach to EI across your business.
  • Simple online booking system.
  • Centralised invoicing model.
  • Access to our national network of Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Nurses to provide appropriate services to employees.

Take action early - it's all about keeping people fit and well for work.
