Noticeboard

We would like to welcome Darren our MSK Specialist to the team

Darren is our Musculoskeletal Practitioner and is a Chartered Physiotherapist. He is able to assess musculoskeletal problems (joints, bones and muscles) and provide you with a diagnosis and treatment plan.  You can now book an appointment directly with him either via the online booking service or reception without needing to see the GP first.

Some of the conditions he can see are:

-          Joint pain

-          Back and neck pain

-          Sciatica

-          Osteoarthritis

-          Muscle, ligament, tendon injuries

-          Sports injuries

-          Work related injuries

If you require a period of treatment or rehabilitation from a physiotherapist then Darren can refer you into the local services directly. If necessary, he can also refer you on for further investigations (blood tests/x-rays etc.) or for specialist consultations such as with Orthopaedic or Rheumatology consultants

Finding the best health Apps

Apps present a fantastic opportunity to not only improve the quality of our healthcare, but also help us to live healthier lives. The market is awash with apps, though, and we have no ability to see whether what is being downloaded will actually improve our health or if our personal data will be stored safely.

At the Practice, we want to ensure that if you are using apps to look after yourselves or manage any conditions you have, or if you are looking to start using them, you can find the best and safest ones available.

For this reason, we would like to make you aware of bolton.orcha.co.uk - essentially a comparison website for health and care apps.  On there you can see how an app performs along three main strands: user experience, clinical effectiveness (i.e. how well it works) and data security (because we know how seriously we all take this these days).

As a Practice we will be working to support you with using apps to support your self-care - so next time you're in, if it feels appropriate, we might well ask if you're interested in using an app to help you live more healthily.
