    NHS Patients

    Access to the service is via GP referral. If you are registered in a GP surgery in Cornwall you will need to speak to your GP about being referred to the service. You could discuss a referral with your GP if you suffer from one or more of the following complaints:

    • Primarily back or neck pain with or without ‘referred’ symptoms to the limbs.
    • Whiplash associated disorders
    • Stiffness and restricted movement
    • Cervicogenic headaches
    • ‘Mechanical’ neck and low back pain
    • Degenerative pain.
    • Postural related neck and back pain.

    Some patients may not be eligible for the service as some conditions are not appropriate for referral. Exclusions:

    • Suspicions of serious pathology– urgent to secondary care or as per locally agreed pathways.
    • Patients under 16 years of age.
    • Patients that do not meet referral criteria.
    • Patients who are not registered with a GP in locality.
    • Patients who it is recognised at point of referral / initial assessment have little or no potential for further or sustained improvement through undertaking a course treatment.
    • Patients with widespread musculoskeletal pain.
    • Patients who have a primary peripheral limb problem with secondary back and neck pain (e.g. hip or shoulder problems, foot or gait abnormalities).
    • Women who are over 35 weeks pregnant.

    If you have any questions please speak to your GP or call our reception who can pass your query to a clinician to answer.
