We thank you for your patience, you can access our Patient FAQs here.
Physiotherapy for MSK conditions involves the assessment and treatment of muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, spinal discs, nerves and other structures to keep you moving.
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.
Our Clinical Assessment and Treatment Service (CATS) is designed for people for whom physiotherapy is not appropriate. This could be for a number of reasons; it could be that their physiotherapy treatment has not been successful, or that their diagnosis is unclear and they need further, more specialist intervention. The CATS service can also order diagnostic tests, such as MRI scans or X-rays if appropriate.
