Musculoskeletal (MSK) physiotherapy is a specialised area of physiotherapy that treats injuries and conditions affecting the muscles, joints and soft tissue structures of the body, commonly seen in adults, children and young people. MSK physiotherapy restores movement and function and facilitates recovery.

It is important for patients to be involved in their own care, through education, awareness and participation in their treatment. MSK physiotherapy is a science-based profession and takes a holistic ‘whole-person’ approach to health and well-being, which includes the patient’s general lifestyle.


Conditions that can be treated include:


  • Back and Neck pain
  • Ligament sprains and muscle strains
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Sciatica
  • Knee pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Achilles Teninopathy
  • Osgood Schlatter disease in adolescents
  • Severs in adolescents

Physiotherapists use some of the following approaches:


Education and advice
Physiotherapists can give general advice on work-related posture, including correct lifting or carrying techniques.

Movement, tailored exercise and physical activity advice
Exercises may be recommended to improve general health and mobility and to strengthen specific parts of the body.

Manual therapy
Physiotherapists can use hands-on treatment techniques to help relieve pain and stiffness and to improve flexibility and joint mobility. This can include soft tissue massage and joint mobilisations and manipulations.

Sports Massage
Physiotherapy treatment can include sports massage which is the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of the soft tissues of the body including muscles, tendons and ligaments.

Physiotherapists use acupuncture to treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions. Acupuncture initiates a variety of physiological responses that can reduce pain and inflammation and help to promote healing and recovery.

Shockwave Therapy
For chronic musculoskeletal conditions that have not responded to conservative treatment methods, physiotherapists can administer shockwave therapy. This treatment is a revolutionary treatment that has an excellent success rate.

What our patients say

I've been going to Square One for treatment of my own injuries for several years and I've always ben amazed at how quickly they can get me going again. I've been prompted to write a review today though having been to see Jennie at Square One with my 11 year old son, who has pains in his knee. The way she spoke to him, treated him and helped him was exceptional. She spoke directly to him the whole time, in a language he could relate to and made him feel comfortable, and confident they can help him get better. I've always know these guys were very very good. Today showed me they're the best. Thank you Jennie, Jenine and team.

What our patients say

I have had a long-standing issue with severe sciatica for more than 12 months due to a prolapsed disc. It had got to the point where I needed some professional help and advice so as to move forward with the injury. The improvement in a matter of weeks has been amazing. I will totally recommend this company to anyone that needs physiotherapy. Great value for money based on the profound effect made to my everyday life.

What our patients say

I saw Laura today after suffering from severe back pain, since Saturday afternoon, I have been unable to walk without pain. Laura assessed, diagnosed and treated me with such professionalism and expertise. I am now able to walk with much more ease and I have been given exercises to do before she sees me again on Friday. I am so grateful that you are remaining open throughout this difficult time. Thank you.

What our patients say

I have been to Laura twice with severe back pains caused by a problem hip. She has sorted out the pain with the minimum fuss. I would strongly recommend the clinic, the booking system is easy and everyone is charming and friendly, not to mention a super physio.

Humphrey Spaight

What our patients say

I have been suffering with tension headaches on and off for a couple of years now. I tried everything to get them to go away to the point where I thought they would never go and it was really taking over my life. I saw Jenine on a recommendation and I finally have them under control. Jenine is really friendly, easy to talk to and a great professional who really knows her stuff, I would not hesitate in recommending to anyone who needs help.
