New physio service to be available in west Cornwall
18 March 2015

A new Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy (MSK) Service will soon be available to patients in the West of Cornwall.

The new service launches on Wednesday 1 April at the Mounts Bay Surgery, offering Musculoskeletal Specialist Physiotherapy treatment for patients with back pain or neck pain.

Located in Sainsbury’s, Penzance, the Mounts Bay Surgery is a satellite GP surgery shared by three local GP practices – Rosemellyn, Alverton and Sunnyside.

Our specialist MSK service offers expert assessment, treatment and advice for patients with back or neck pain. Our highly qualified clinicians are able to offer a wide-range of treatment options, including manual therapy, acupuncture, manipulation and tailored therapeutic exercise programmes, as appropriate.

To access the service, patients must be referred by their GP.

Once they have been referred they will be seen quickly for their assessment and treatment. Patients can call 0845 2077701 for more details on their referral.

Our Musculoskeletal Therapy Manager, Maria Stickland, commented: “We are delighted to be working within Mounts Bay Surgery at Sainsbury's Penzance offering high quality specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy to the population of Penzance and surrounding areas. We are happy to accept referrals from any GPs for patients with back or neck pain. Clinics will start from Wednesday 1 April.”
