Occupational Safety, Health and Rehabilitation Specialty Group (OSHRSG)

Occupational Safety, Health and Rehabilitation Specialty Group (OSHRSG)  is a group of HKPA members with a special interest in Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) in workplaces and work rehabilitation. Physiotherapy in OSH is about fostering a safe working environment and minimizing the risk and hazard at work. Throughout the risk assessment on workplace and individual, physiotherapists can provide professional advice on safe working practice with proper equipment and ergonomics. Besides, we also help injured workers return to work through treatments and re-training. If the worker could not successfully return to work with full function, physiotherapists would negotiate with the employers for the potential work adjustment.

OSHRSG has the following objectives:

  • To keep our members up-to-date knowledge, latest development and the study opportunity in the field of Occupational Safety, Health and Rehabilitation (OSHR)
  • To raise the public awareness by working hard on promoting the proper ergonomics and OSHR information in various means, including interviews in social media, health carnivals and talks, etc.
  • To liaise with other related local and international associations and organizations, for the sake of upholding the OSH standard in Hong Kong

Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine Specialty Group (AIMSG)

Our group was developed from previous “Acupuncture Specialty Group (ASG)” and was renamed as the “Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine Specialty Group (AIMSG)” on 20 th April, 2010. We aimed to promote the use of acupuncture and integrative medicine in physiotherapy.

Physiotherapy in Hong Kong is characterized by the harmonious integration of modern Chinese medicine and advanced Western medical approach. Therefore, physiotherapists in Hong Kong are using modern acupuncture practice for pain management, improving muscle strength and enhancing soft-tissue healing.

Also we will adopt integrative approaches such as Qigong in our daily practice to enhance recovery of functional movement, prevent diseases and improve general well-being and quality of life of the patients.
