Muscle and Bone Health
First Contact Physiotherapy at Tyntesfield Medical Group
We now have a great new service at TMG, where you can directly access assessment, diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal issues through making an appointment with our First Contact Physiotherapists (“FCPs”).
This is a nationwide scheme that is being rolled out to improve the treatment pathway for patients presenting to their GP surgeries with new sprains, strains and pains related to muscles, nerves, bones and joints.
Simon Carley-Smith and Nicky Milward are both experienced musculoskeletal specialists and you can book an appointment with them through contacting reception, just as you would your GP.
Their goal is to give you a thorough assessment and provide you with the most appropriate, evidenced based treatment options for your condition; from self-management and pain relief strategies to home exercises or appropriate investigations and onward surgical referral where required. If you have a condition requiring ongoing rehabilitation they will refer you into NHS physiotherapy whilst giving you the initial stage of your programme.
We see this as bringing great benefits to our patients, giving them access to the right person and the right musculoskeletal management advice first time.
