This helpline is a phone triage service for people experiencing muscle, back or joint problems.
These problems are often known as musculoskeletal problems or MSK for short. Many MSK problems will
settle with self-care and often you do not need to see a healthcare professional. Fully trained call operators, supported by clinicians offer expert advice about what you can do to treat and manage your condition.
If required, they can refer you to a local NHS Healthcare professional –
such as a physiotherapist or podiatrist.
