Better Care

MSK Physiotherapy

For patients aged 16 years and over, the musculoskeletal physiotherapy service offers patients across Birmingham a wide range of expert assessment and treatment options such as electrotherapy, manual therapy, exercise prescription, classes such as Pilates and acupuncture as well as condition-specific advice to facilitate a prompt return to work, sport or function.

Utilising specialist skills, the team works together to provide comprehensive patient-centred treatment that effectively empowers patients to improve their musculoskeletal health.  As part of our commitment to providing accessible healthcare the service offers extended opening hours between 7am and 8pm. 

Physiotherapy helps patients with restoring movement and function of limbs and muscles when affected by injury, illness or disability.

Physiotherapists maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease.

The profession helps to encourage development and facilitate recovery, enabling people to stay in work while helping them to remain independent for as long as possible.

You can benefit from physiotherapy at any time in your life. Physiotherapy helps with back pain or sudden injury, managing long-term medical condition such as asthma, and in preparing for childbirth or a sporting event.

What is pain management?

Many people struggle with long-term pain. But help from your GP and pain services can lessen the pain, improve your independence and help you cope in general. Often, chronic pain is an illness in its own right, due to a fault or malfunction in the body's pain system. Pain clinics vary but usually offer a variety of treatments aimed at relieving long term pain, such as painkilling drugs; injections; hypnotherapy and acupuncture.
