At Attenborough Surgery we have two First Contact Physiotherapists who are here to assess any musculoskeletal condition.
This means that if you have a joint pain, a muscle issue, spinal pain or any pain down your limbs then you can be seen without having to see a GP first.
By the end of one appointment, you will be assessed, diagnosed, given some initial treatment ideas, given pain relief (if necessary), referred for investigations (e.g. x-rays or blood tests) referred to the right service (physiotherapy, podiatry, pain management, rheumatology or back to a GP) or injected (if that is what is required).
So if you have pain anywhere why not ask to see a physiotherapist today?
Our in-house physio is available to treat problems such as:
- Sports injuries,
- Head and neck injuries,
- Shoulder injuries,
- Knee injuries,
- Back injuries,
Physiotherapists also help people with mental health conditions, neurological conditions (those affecting the brain and nervous system) and chronic (long-term) health conditions.
By using a number of different approaches and techniques, a physiotherapist can help a person to overcome injury or short-term health problems, or manage long-term disability.
