Our Northumberland Services

The local services in your area include:

  • Physiotherapy
  • Physiotherapy for MSK conditions involves the assessment and treatment of muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, spinal discs, nerves and other structures to keep you moving.

  • PhysioLine
  • In some cases, your GP may refer you to PhysioLine; a contact and assessment service completed over the phone by a Chartered Physiotherapist. PhysioLine has proven to be an extremely effective way for patients to speak with a physiotherapist quickly (usually within 2-4 days) and start managing their problem straightaway. By using PhysioLine you can access specialist guidance and support, while causing as little disruption as possible to your normal routine.

  • Pain Service
  • Our community pain teams are made up of medical consultants, specialist physiotherapists, clinical psychologists and nurse specialists. Everyone specialises in chronic pain and works closely as a team to support people struggling to live with this. Unfortunately it is not always possible to cure pain but our team will help you find ways to manage your pain and lead a better quality of life. They can help you start doing more of what matters to you without making the pain worse and to manage flare ups. The team can also support you with the emotional impact of living with pain.
