Harrogate District patients can now seek quicker advice on managing aches and pains
A new website developed by physiotherapists has been launched by Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust and Harrogate and Rural District Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to provide patients with information and resources on musculoskeletal (MSK) pain prior to their physiotherapy appointment.
The website provides information on all musculoskeletal pain, including; neck, back, shoulder, elbow, wrist/hand, hip, knee and ankle/foot. It also offers pain advice as well as health messages on stopping smoking, healthy lifestyles and local weight loss help. Patients can access the self-help information at home as a way to start their rehabilitation, meaning quicker resolutions and management for their aches and pains.
Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist Matt Halpin started the website along with colleagues “It’s fantastic that we’re able to provide resources on managing musculoskeletal pain to patients across the Harrogate District.”
“The quicker someone is able to commence rehab after an injury or episode of pain, the better their outcome. The website allows them to access self-help advice and information straight away, meaning they can get help quicker. The information we’re providing will complement the advice we offer patients at hospital appointments, and patients can be assured the information available via the website is from a reliable source direct from their local NHS services.”
