A NEW physiotherapy help service has been launched by NHS 24 and NHS Lanarkshire. Free expert advice for those with muscle and joint problems will be provided by The National Musculoskeletal (MSK) Advice and Triage Service.

Senga Cree, NHS Lanarkshire’s head of physiotherapy, said: “Through the MSK service people can get advice on their muscle and joint pains and aches without having to wait for an appointment or visit a health centre.

“They can also receive information on how they can treat their individual injury.”
