Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy provided by White House Clinic

If you contact the practice with symptoms of musculoskeletal pain or discomfort (bones, muscles, joints) you may be offered an appointment with one of our musculoskeletal practitioners.

The aim is provide you with the best specialist knowledge and assessment for your discomfort as quickly as possible.

These appointments may be a mixture of telephone appointments or face to face – depending on our current arrangement at the practice.

Are they the same as physios?”

Not quite!

What can they do do for you?

They can carry out specialist assessment and screening of serious medical conditions. Give information on self-care and enable and support any behaviour changes. Discuss personal exercise and physical activity and give health advice (e.g. smoking cessation and weight management).

They can refer you for a “course” of treatment (e.g. physiotherapy or podiatry). They may also refer you to orthopaedic / rheumatology / pain services and request investigations without the need for a further GP appointment.

What conditions can they help with?

Face to face appointments are currently available on a Tuesday at Brailsford surgery (subject to change). Please contact Reception to book and make use of this fantastic service provided by White House Clinic!
