Welcome to Physio MSK. The main aim of this site is to provide honest, evidence based advice and information for everyday people with common musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions. 

In keeping with modern healthcare policies including the NHS long term plan, this site has a strong bias towards self-help and encouraging people to take responsibility for managing their own MSK health. 

We have seen huge changes over the past few decades in technology, convenience products, diet and a move towards more sedentary occupations. An unfortunate consequence of our modern lifestyles is that our activity levels have significantly declined and body weight has increased. As a result, we have seen a dramatic increase in public health issues such as diabetes, heart disease, mental health problems and MSK conditions. 

The main objective of this site is to provide good quality honest advice for normal everyday people with the most common MSK conditions from the perspective of an experienced MSK clinician. The site is not aimed at elite sports or those who wish to enhance their sports performance. There are plenty of other websites out there to cater for this area. This website is aimed squarely at 'Joe Public', normal everyday folk with common MSK problems.

I strongly believe that a well educated person who understands the nature of their condition is more likely to be pro-active with regards to self-help and when implementing treatment suggestions. The most helpful thing I can do for my patients is provide good quality information that they can use to help understand and manage their condition by themselves. And so the main intention of this site is to educate and encourage self-management wherever possible, and then to provide advice and information about other treatment options if they are needed. 
Please be aware that the site is in its infancy. New articles and videos will appear every few weeks with the aim of addressing the most common MSK conditions over the next 2 years. 

Many Thanks for visiting
