About Us

The Physiotherapy MSK (Musculoskeletal) service in the East Riding of Yorkshire provides an outpatient-based 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’

Musculoskeletal 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.

Musculoskeletal physiotherapy is about us helping you to become more mobile, active and productive in your daily life by helping you restore movement and function. Our goal is for you to manage your problem by regaining and maintaining an independent lifestyle as far as possible when you are affected by an accident, illness, injury or disability.

  • Able to attend as an outpatient

  • Respiratory (breathing) problems
  • Rehabilitation based problems such as falls and amputees.
  • Bladder problems such as incontinence or vaginal prolapse

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Bell's Palsy

Elizabeth is very knowledgeable and she checked my shoulder problem thoroughly and guided me well. I highly recommend getting seen by her on first
occasion rather than after 5 months of suffering from pain.
