First Contact Physiotherapists
We have First Contact Physiotherapists working with us at Brockwood Medical Practice.
These clinicians will assess, diagnose and refer, they will not provide treatment. However, they can offer suggestions and guidance on how to manage a problem whilst waiting ongoing treatment and this often prevents patients' symptoms from getting worse and on occasion helps the patient get better themselves.
They are highly trained, skilled and experienced in their field and are a better option to the patient than seeing a GP; They have a huge amount of information and guidance to give to the patient.
Appointments can be made with the physios for anything related to musculoskeletal issues, for example, painful neck/whiplash, painful back/sciatica, painful knees, joint pain/stiffness, muscle aches, sprained ankles, tennis elbow, in general anything where the patient may describe pain, tingling, numbness, stiffness or weakness relating to a muscle, bone or joint.
