Our practice will be offering appointments with a MSK Physiotherapist without having to see the GP first for patients with joint or muscle problems, a back or neck problem or sports injuries.
The Physiotherapist will offer a 20 minute appointment. This appointment will allow for assessment of the problem, advice and signposting for management of the problem that you have.
Please note that these appointments are not for on-going physiotherapy but are for assessment and advice only. If the Physiotherapist thinks that you need further treatment, investigation, medication, fit note or onward referral, he/she will be able to liaise with your GP and arrange this for you so that, in most cases, a separate appointment with the GP will not be required.
If you are otherwise well and over the age of 16 years you could be seen by the Physiotherapist for the following problems:
· Back pain and sciatica
· Neck pain and whiplash
· Shoulder pain on movement
· Joint pains – e.g. elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle, foot
· Muscle and tendon pains
· Sports injuries, sprains, strains
