Expert Care for Musculoskeletal Issues

With over 650 muscles and more than 200 bones in our body, it’s no wonder we all suffer from musculo-skeletal pain and injuries at some time – and that numbers doesn’t include the thousands of other tissues: ligaments, tendons, cartilages etc.

Whilst many of our aches and pains will settle naturally, some are either very acute and painful, and others don’t heal in the optimal time frame, leaving lingering pains and dysfunctions.

SSPC's Musculoskeletal Expertise

SSPC Physiotherapists are trained to assess, diagnose, and treat all musculo-skeletal conditions, using a combination of manual therapy, therapeutic exercises, and other modalities to help patients regain function and reduce pain.

Common causes for musculoskeletal issues

Some of the more common Musculo-skeletal complaints we treat include:

Muscle Strains and Sprains

Overuse, sudden movements, or sports-related injuries can lead to muscle strains (damage to the muscles or tendons) or sprains (ligament injuries), resulting in pain and reduced function.


Overloading of tendons due to overuse, repetitive motion, or sudden changes to exercise patterns can result in tendon pain. Tendons can also be damaged with sudden high loads (like an achilles rupture).


The degeneration of joint cartilage and underlying bone, often causing joint pain, swelling and stiffness, commonly affecting the knees, hips, and spine. Many of our patients have avoided joint replacements by joining our classes!

Frozen Shoulder

A condition characterized by stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint, often restricting range of motion. Of unknown cause and origin, a frozen shoulder can sneak up on you and cause severe stiffness and pain, especially at night.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Compression of a nerve in the wrist, leading to hand pain, numbness, and tingling. At SSPC our hand physiotherapist regularly treats carpal tunnel syndrome and all other hand and wrist problems.

Plantar Fasciitis

The dread for all runners (and everyone who doesn’t run that has it). Plantar fasciitis causes acute heel pain, especially during the first steps in the morning. For those who have experienced this condition, you know how acutely painful it is, and that it often takes many months to get right.

Rotator Cuff Injuries

Tears or strains in the muscles and tendons around the shoulder joint, leading to pain and reduced shoulder mobility. Often diagnosed by scans, rotator cuff pathology may not actually be the problem (despite your scan saying so). The shoulder is a wonderful joint, but is also complex!

Knee Injuries

Conditions like anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears, meniscus injuries, and patellofemoral pain syndrome can cause knee pain and instability. Tendon and growth conditions like “jumpers knee” and “Osgood Schlatters” are common in the young.
