A musculoskeletal (MSK) condition includes any pain or loss of movement or function that involves muscles, bones, joints, nerves, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and spinal discs.
This service is for adult patients (aged 16 and over) who are not able to manage their musculoskeletal (MSK) symptoms, despite having appropriate treatment. The role of this service is to clarify the diagnosis. If appropriate, we could request blood tests, nerve conduction studies, X-rays, CT or MRI scans to aid this process.
Once we have established the diagnosis, we can refer you to the appropriate health professional or service to best manage your condition.
The clinical specialists are also able to provide injections of steroid for certain conditions.
