Moving Forward – Physiotherapy For Musculoskeletal Health And Wellbeing

Physiotherapy For Musculoskeletal Health Study

Released by the National Institute for Health Research is a publication called MOVING FORWARD Physiotherapy for Musculoskeletal (MSK) Health and Wellbeing. The publication highlights how important physiotherapy is for preventing and reducing the impact of musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions.

What Are MSK (Musculoskeletal) Conditions

MSK conditions range from simple strains and sprains to long-term conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. It covers problems affecting joints, bones and muscles as well as rare conditions of the immune system.

Characterised by pain and loss of function, these conditions can diminish quality of life, impact on family and social relationships, make everyday activities difficult and limit a person’s capacity to work.

Our team at DDB Physiotherapy Clinic specialise in MSK Physiotherapy and help you manage these conditions to improve your quality of life.

Research Into Musculoskeletal Health Shows That

One in four people are affected by musculoskeletal conditions, which are the leading cause of pain and disability in the UK.[1][2]

30.8 million working days were lost in 2016 due to musculoskeletal problems – it is the second leading cause of sickness absence at work.[3]

Caring for patients with musculoskeletal conditions is the third highest area of NHS spending.[4]
