Musculo-skeletal (MSK) Outpatient Physiotherapy Services in Scarborough,Whitby and Ryedale locality
What we do
We provide a specialist service to deal with conditions of neuro-musculo-skeletal origin, which covers necks, backs, all joints, muscles, ligaments and the peripheral neurological supply to these structures.
The team covers musculo-skeletal injuries and works as an outpatient department. Patients are referred into the service by GP’s and Consultants.
Assessment will take into account the individual needs and demands of the patient to customise a course of treatment that can include exercises, stretches, joint mobilisation, tissue mobilisation, manipulation , acupuncture, pacing , advice ,education, joint / soft tissue injections and electrotherapy.
Access to our Gymnasiums is also provided, where a number of specific rehabilitation groups run to aid long term recovery and return to full fitness (be that work, sport or leisure). These classes deal with upper and lower limb conditions, chronic back conditions and post operative orthopaedic rehabilitation.
We also have a number of Extended Scope Practitioners (ESP’s) who work within a specialist assessment and treatment service aligned to MSK Physiotherapy called MSK Clinical Assessment and Treatment Service (MSK CATS).
The ESP’s provide a high level of orthopaedic assessment, diagnosis and management. This can include requesting further investigations, interpreting results to formulate a management plan. They also carry out joint and soft tissue injections. They are highly specialised musculoskeletal physiotherapists with extended skills to enable them to work closely with the Orthopaedic Consultants.
