Why choose physiotherapy?
"Physiotherapists are the most expert group regarding Musculoskeletal issues with the exception of Orthopaedic Consultants.
They have the same safety high safety record as GP's and are trained to spot and act on red flags" (Childs 2005 BMC)
Physiotherapy is recommended above other alternatives by QIPP (Quality Innovation Productivity and Prevention)
GP's are now endorsing and utilising Physiotherapy as a first point of contact - rather than a GP appointment - for Musculoskeletal problems (CSP & DoH)
