We can deal with many types of joint and muscle injuries including

Ideally, you should book an appointment within 14 days of sustaining your injury. But if you have an older injury then we will also see people with on-going injuries.
What happens during an appointment?
On arrival at the clinic, you will be seen by one of our top orthopaedic consultants and you will also have an X-ray taken of your knee. This clinic will provide a rapid specialist diagnosis and treatment plan allowing for a speedy return to work and sports participation.
