There are a large number of muscoloskeletal (MSK) health conditions that patients present to their doctors with. Many of them respond to self care interventions. On April 26th, two senior Specialist Physiotherapists from Berkshire Health Foundation Trust, Kate Watson and Claire Gibson from Berkshire Health Foundation Trust (BHFT) will be talking about Low Back Pain and Sciatica. I will then do a a more general evaluation of MSK conditions of the upper and lower extremities (arms / hands / legs / feet) and spine. We will explain what you can do to improve your condition and when to see a professional. Due to the vastness of this area we can only cover a smaller number of common conditions, but are happy to answer questions about rarer conditions.
