About Proactive Works

Evelyn Morrison, owner of Proactive Works writes…

As a musculoskeletal physiotherapist I look for the risk factors that contributed to my patients’ injuries. One day in a clinic I had a eureka moment. It became obvious that if these risk factors had been identified before the onset of symptoms and a corrective exercise programme begun, that the injury would have been prevented. I thought why do we go to the dentist and GP for checkups but never consider getting our musculoskeletal system assessed – considering musculoskeletal pain is the primary reason for sickness absence. This led to the development of Proactive Works.

I really enjoy getting to the core reason as to why a problem has occurred or reoccurs. I am passionate about being proactive, hence the name ‘Proactive Works’. You can follow my handy tips for wellbeing in my blog or sign up for my newsletter it is full of valuable advice to help people stay well at work.
