Physiotherapists in the Southern Trust are now able to offer Injection Therapy for suitable patients with musculoskeletal conditions.
Patients who might benefit from a timely injection following a physiotherapy assessment, will be treated by an advanced clinical specialist physiotherapist who has completed approved post graduate training in Injection Therapy.
Denise Hall, clinical lead physiotherapist in Musculoskeletal Outpatients said, “Feedback to date shows that pain and quality of life are greatly improved for those patients who have availed of Injection Therapy as part of their Physiotherapy plan, helping them to return to work, hobbies and normal lifestyle. It is also much more convenient for patients to receive their injection from their Physiotherapist, avoiding the need to attend additional appointments at other clinics.”
Southern Trust staff can also access the service following an Occupational Health Physiotherapy Assessment to help reduce sickness absence.
Physiotherapy Referrals should be sent through the AHP Booking Centre via CCG or via email to HYPERLINK “mailto:Ahp.firstname.lastname@example.org” Ahp.email@example.com and following assessment a Physiotherapist will arrange an Injection as appropriate to the agreed Patient’s management plan.
