Leeds Musculoskeletal and Rehabilitation (MSK) Service
Our service offers assessment and treatment by Physiotherapists, Musculoskeletal Consultants and Podiatrists who strive to use the latest evidence based approaches to musculoskeletal problems for patients of all ages and with a wide range of needs. This has led to the ongoing development of Leeds MSK expert clinical care pathways, ensuring that all our treatments are evidence based and patient focused, with integration between primary care & secondary care.
All our clinicians work together to ensure that our patient's rehabilitation follows the best course possible, whether they need treatment from one or more experts and whether the patient requires manual therapy, exercise, injections, investigations, orthoses or advice and education to promote self management of a long term condition.
Our service operates from over thirty sites throughout the city of Leeds, enabling you to choose a venue convenient to you. All of these locations are available through the "Choose & Book" appointment system.
