We aim to be a single service to help you manage your persistent pain.
You can be referred by your doctor from 1st May 2018. Once we receive your referral, our team will arrange the best help for your problem as soon as possible. This might be:
- Telephone advice and exercise
- Group exercise classes
- Advice, education and self-management resources
- Condition management and rehabilitation classes
- Medication review
- Psychology input
- Referral on to other services
If we ask you to come for an appointment please wear loose clothing so that we can easily examine the affected area. We will take a full history, do a physical examination and talk about treatment plans with you before starting treatment.
Please let us know if you would like to see a female therapist when booking your appointment. You are welcome to bring a family member or friend for support or we can offer a chaperone on prior request.
It is very important that you are on time for each appointment. If you are late we might not be able to see you and if this is repeated you may be discharged from the service.
