Posted on 28 Feb 2022
Catherine Adams Physiotherapy FCP Services
FCP First Contact Physiotherapy, is a new NHS service in which you see a physiotherapist instead of your GP for your first appointment about your musculoskeletal condition. This service is available for patients 16 years of age and over.
Musculoskeletal conditions can be:
• Soft tissue injuries, sprains strains or sports injuries
• Arthritis in any joint
• Possible problems with muscles, ligaments, tendons or bones e.g. tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome
• Spinal pain including lower back, mid back and neck pain
• Spinal related pain in arms or legs including nerve symptoms e.g. pins and needles or numbness
• Post orthopaedic surgery
The appointment will involve taking details to assess and make a diagnosis.
We will then discuss a treatment plan with you, this may be, exercises to self-manage or refer you for onward treatment to the appropriate service.
Contact directly on telephone: 07436797891
