Specialist Doctors

Musculoskeletal and sports medicine is the area of healthcare which deals with conditions of the spine, muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints. This is a multidisciplinary area which involves a number of healthcare professionals such as physiotherapists, osteopaths and podiatrists. Musculoskeletal Physcians are experts in diagnosis and can refer on for a wide range of investigations such as x-ray and MRI where necessary to make an accurate diagnosis. They can use a range of treatment options from manipulation and exercises to a variety of injection techniques (e.g. soft tissue or joint injections, prolotherapy and epidural injections). If appropriate, musculoskeletal physicians can also prescribe medication as part of your treatment plan.
