Our Musculoskeletal (MSK) Clinic offers a wide range of highly specialised services in one place during a single visit.

All of our patients have direct access to diagnostic assessments and pain relief, with no waiting times and without the need for a GP referral.

Our MSK Clinic offers treatment for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions and sports injuries. We see any person aged 16 years and above suffering from soft tissue or problems that are affecting a joint or the lower back. It is common for a patient to present with a sports injury or soft tissue problems, such as ligament sprains, bursitis, arthritis and tendinopathy at a consultation.

When you arrive for a consultation, you will be welcomed into the clinic by our staff. MSK specialist will perform a thorough examination of the affected body part and discuss your symptoms with you. The examination will be followed with a diagnostic ultrasound scan that will identify any soft tissue damage, such as inflammation of a bursa, arthritis and tears in tendons, muscles or ligaments.

Once you have been examined, MSK specialist will have a clinical discussion with you about your diagnosis and the different treatment options that are available to you. The specialist will outline an individualized treatment plan with you, whilst also offering general medical advice on your lifestyle to improve the efficacy of any possible treatment.

Our MSK Clinic offer a unique experience to their patients which allows them to have an examination, diagnostic scan and receive a treatment plan in one visit. It is also possible for the patient to have their first injection during their initial consultation.
