Face masks must still be worn in NHS buildings
To protect patients, visitors and our staff, all visitors to our sites must continue to wear a face mask (unless exempt). Face masks and hand sanitiser are available at the entrances to all our sites.
Aches and pains are a normal part of life. However, they can prevent you from carrying out your usual day-to-day activities and can make you feel worried and frustrated.
The good news is that most of the conditions that cause these aches and pains can be easily treated by you, at home. Click on the below tiles for advice and information from our clinicians to help you do this.
CSP resources to support self-managing MSK conditions - in partnerships with NHS England and other agencies
If you have an outpatient MSK physiotherapy appointment booked, please do NOT attend in person. Please be aware that the MSK service are utilising telephone and video software to enable the physiotherapist to complete a remote assessment. The telephone number will be withheld so please make sure that your phone allows you to receive incoming calls from withheld numbers. If a video call is required, you will need to download the appropriate software (Webex) to your mobile phone/tablet/laptop/PC and ensure that you have a web camera and microphone. In order to send the invite to the video call, we will require an e-mail address. If a video call is not possible, you will still receive a telephone assessment.
