Musculoskeletal (MSK) and Physiotherapy Services

We’ve been running MSK and physiotherapy services in the community since 2009 and have treated more than a quarter of a million people. Our services offer free consultation, advice and treatment for people with joint or muscle problems.

Although each one is slightly different, generally your GP will refer you to these services. We’re always looking to improve how this works so you receive advice and treatment as soon as possible. You can now refer yourself into a number of our MSK and physiotherapy services and we use a telephone triage and advice service, where appropriate, to find out what treatment you need. With our support know that self-help techniques and exercise at home can make all the difference, so you don’t have to attend unnecessary appointments and so we can make sure we treat the most critical cases as quickly as possible.

Our physiotherapists are highly trained and experienced, so you will feel safe and involved throughout your course of treatment. They’ll also work closely with other specialist services to make sure you get the care you need.

All of our physiotherapy and MSK services are slightly different, but they have a common approach:

These services have telephone advice service so we can find out what treatment is best for you and potentially, if supported exercise at home is appropriate, this avoid unnecessary appointments.
