The Wharfedale Clinic specialises in musculoskeletal medicine and musculoskeletal sports injuries. The musculoskeletal system comprises the bones, joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons, along with the supporting blood and nerve supplies. From back pain to sciatica, Achilles tendinopathy to osteoarthritis, the range of musculoskeletal conditions and injuries is vast and can account for up to 25% of a GP’s workload. Indeed, such conditions are the second most common cause of disability in the UK.
For this reason, we have brought together a multidisciplinary team of independent practitioners who each offer their own specialist skills. The majority of our practitioners have been in practice for many years, and have a wealth of experience, expertise and a well-deserved reputation in their own right. And, we don’t just treat musculoskeletal problems and injuries, we try to identify why they have occurred and address any causative and/or perpetuating factors too, in the interests of preventing any recurrence/relapse.
We see a range of clients of all ages and backgrounds with a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, as well as amateur and professional athletes with sports-related musculoskeletal injuries.
