Why is my first appointment by telephone?

  • Physio-Direct is a telephone service to provide early advice and management for people with musculoskeletal problems
  • Patients would receive earlier intervention dismissing any clinical red flags (i.e., whether they require urgent medical attention) and assessing the individual’s psychosocial response to their MSK injury.
  • By tackling MSK problems earlier on, the likelihood of them becoming long lasting is reduced. Accessing intervention at the earliest point will allow self-management and treatment to begin efficiently and reduce the likelihood of progression from an acute to a chronic problem.
  • This earlier intervention aims to improve overall health and well-being.
