Sports injuries a problem for HR departments

Monday is always a great day for golf but lets correct that – all golfers believe that a bad day on the golf course is better than a good day at work.

Injuries can affect a game of golf but private medical insurance can help solve problems quickly.

A friend of my mine recently needed to undergo some physiotherapy prior to his usual Monday veterans match. With the help of his private medical insurer, treatment was administered quickly and effectively (no waiting list).

Thank goodness since a few hours later he managed to beat odds of 67 million to one (similar to winning the lottery four times) by scoring two holes-in-one in a single round of golf.

According to golfing pundits there is no record in the USA and England of two holes-in-one by one golfer in a match.

On a wider sphere sports injuries continue to be a major cause of lost working time. A few years ago there were over 22 million sporting injuries sustained in one year! (This is about 30% of the population.) Football is the number one sport for causing injuries with rugby second.
Most injuries are sprains or muscle pulls where early access to trained physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors will generally enable you to affect an early recovery.

So for those who play sports, private medical insurance (or the cheaper cash plans) is essential to get you back to work or on to the golf course quickly.
