Musculoskeletal (MSK) Physiotherapy


Welcome to the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust Outpatient Musculoskeletal (MSK) Physiotherapy Service. We are a team of MSK physiotherapists who provide treatment for a wide range of orthopaedic, musculo-skeletal and rheumatological conditions. 

Physiotherapy takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and wellbeing. We look at a range of factors which may be influencing your symptoms including tissue injury, lifestyle, sleep, exercise and stress.We then use up to date, evidence based practice to manage your condition, tailoring treatment plans to support your personal needs. We encourage patients to take control of their own care through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in treatment.

Our service consists of a group of dedicated, experienced, highly skilled physiotherapists and physiotherapy assistants who work closely with consultants and other members of the wider department to facilitate your return to full health. We help to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability.Whether you have had surgery, are off work due to pain or injury, are unable to compete in your favourite sport or looking to increase your independence with day to day activities, we can help.
