Do you have a joint or muscle problem?
Did you know that most musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions can be treated at home and get better with self-management recommendations, activity modification and gradual progression of exercises? Braintree PCN is partnered with getUBetter which gives you the knowledge, skills, and confidence you need to improve your MSK health and lifestyle. This can empower you to manage your own condition/injury without needing to see a specialist for this. Although you could always get further help from your GP Surgery to discuss with your FCP Physiotherapist if any issues, questions about your condition or if not improving.
