Musculoskeletal and Sports Medicine:
By its very nature, Musculoskeletal and Sports Medicine can involve a multidisciplinary range of practitioners such as physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors and podiatrists to specialist medical practitioners including physicians and surgeons.
Musculoskeletal Physicians have expert skills in the diagnosis of conditions of the spine, muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints. They can use a wide range of treatment options from manipulation and exercises to a variety of injection techniques where appropriate.
