About Us

The Physiotherapy MSK (Musculoskeletal) service in the East Riding of Yorkshire provides an outpatient physiotherapy service for adults and children aged 5 years and above who are registered with an East Riding GP (excluding Pocklinton) and have problems affecting:

  • Bones
  • Muscles
  • Joints
  • Tendons
  • Ligaments
  • Nerves

For example:

  • Following surgery, such as a knee replacement or shoulder operation
  • Following a fracture
  • Arthritic joints, for example, osteoarthritis of the knee
  • Back or neck pain
  • Soft tissue conditions such as ankle sprain, tendinitis and ‘frozen shoulder’

MSK physiotherapists are health professionals with specialist training in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. They will be able to help you manage your problem instead of seeing the doctor.

MSK physiotherapy can help you to become more mobile, active and productive in your daily life by helping you restore movement and function. We will help you to manage your problem by regaining and maintaining an independent lifestyle as far as possible if you've been affected by an accident, illness, injury or disability.

To access the service you must:

  • Registered with an East Riding GP (excluding Pocklington)
  • Have a musculoskeletal problem
  • Be age 5 and over
  • Be able to attend as an outpatient - we cannot provide home-visits.

The service does not see patients whose main problem is:

  • Neurological such as after a stroke or multiple-sclerosis (MS)
  • Respiratory (breathing) problems
  • Rehabilitation based problems such as after falls or amputation.
  • Bladder problems such as incontinence or vaginal prolapse
  • Dizziness or vertigo
  • Requiring a walking aid or equipment
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Bell's Palsy
  • Hypermobility

Alex is always happy to help you and explains things to you so you understand your injury properly
