MUSCULOSKELETAL SERVICE (MSK)
MSK Ayrshire and Arran have recently launched a new website to assist with the advice and management of musculoskeletal conditions. At present it contains information and exercises for OA knees, patellofemoral pain and chronic pain management. Although only recently launched early feedback shows an appetite for further information so over the next few months the website will be continually updated with other common MSK conditions.
