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.

For more serious longterm physiotherapy problems, please make a GP appointment for further referral. The MSK team will however, advise you on this, so they should be your first point of call.

Helen and David are the husband and wife osteopath team at Back2Life Clinic. They run clinics out of APMC on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Friday mornings.
Osteopathy is a gentle, effective, hands-on approach to healthcare and is best known for relieving pain and discomfort. Osteopaths are recognised by the NHS as fully qualified to diagnose and treat independently.
The practice of osteopathy includes applying skilled soft tissue stretching/ balancing techniques and joint mobilisations and adjustments, with the aim of restoring movement and function which has been lost. Osteopaths firmly believe that the body is very good at looking after itself when it is in the right condition to do it. They simply help provide that environment.
They are best known for backs, but can help with most problems that relate to muscle, tendon, joint, disc, nerve and ligament damage in the body. Helen is also qualified in cranial osteopathy and helps many babies (and their tired parents)!
Appointments can be made by calling their central clinic on 01324 670 670 or by visiting their website www.back2lifeclinic.co.uk
