Musculoskeletal (MSK) Services
Musculoskeletal (MSK) Physiotherapy
Physiotherapy helps to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. It can also help to reduce your risk of injury or illness in the future. It takes a holistic approach that directly involves you in your care.
Our MSK Physiotherapy services provide advice and treatment for conditions that affect joints, bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons. We help people who have difficulty with their day-to-day living due to pain or problems with movement. We also treat people who have suffered an injury, or have had an orthopaedic operation.
Musculoskeletal Interface (MSKI) Services, including MATS, CATS and SATS
MSKI is a triage service which offers assessment and treatment for people with musculoskeletal (MSK) and/or spinal conditions in Bristol (MATS), North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (CATS&SATS).
It is aimed at people who have persistent pain and have not responded to normal GP care such as advice and pain relief, or other treatment such as physiotherapy or podiatry.
It is run by expert clinicians, including extended scope physiotherapists and podiatrists, and GPs with a special interest. We aim to determine the best course of care using our clinical expertise, evidence and shared decision making.
