Musculoskeletal therapy

musculoskeletal therapy

Musculoskeletal therapy is a multidisciplinary rehabilitation service.

We are a team of highly skilled physiotherapists and occupational therapists, specialising in assessment and patient centred rehabilitation for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. Our occupational therapists also specialise in vocational rehabilitation, supporting our patients to remain in, or return to work.

We are based at London Road Community Hospital on Level 3, and have a dedicated gym area for group rehabilitation, heavy workshop for vocational rehabilitation, as well as individual cubicles to support all different musculoskeletal conditions and patient needs. We work closely with the orthopaedic consultants as well as GPs, to support excellent care for our patients.
