Dorset Musculoskeletal service (DMSK) provides assessment, diagnosis and support with musculoskeletal conditions.

These are conditions that can affect muscles, bones, and joints, in any part of the body. They include common problems such as lower back pain, tennis elbow, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome and osteoarthritis. You can be referred to this service by your GP or physiotherapist.

Our specialist orthodpaedics staff work from clinics across Dorset, and offer a range of treatments, including injections, epidurals and hand and wrist splints.

Following your assessment we may refer you for physiotherapy to assist your rehabilitation.
