Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Support from the team

IANDS - MPT - Support from the team - Introduction
We support children and Young People ages 0-17 registered with an Islington GP.   A valid referral from a doctor or other health care professional is required to see one of our physiotherapists.
Unfortunately, we cannot accept self-referrals.
Common conditions seen in our clinic:
  • Sports injuries
  • Back /Joint pain
  • Rehab post fractures
  • Post-surgery rehabilitation
  • Walking and movement problems
  • Rheumatology conditions like Arthritis
  • Gross motor developmental delay
  • Scoliosis
  • Infant Orthopaedic conditions including; torticollis (tight neck muscles), plagiocephaly, talipes, erbís palsy.

What to expect?
At your appointment, the physiotherapist will ask you questions about your condition and lifestyle.
The physiotherapist will need to do an assessment so you will need to wear appropriate clothes Ė e.g. shorts / vest.
You may only require one appointment, however if you require more, this will be discussed with you.
Treatment may include the following:
  • Advice and education
  • Individual exercise sessions
  • Group gym exercise sessions
  • Manual therapy

Treatment options can vary greatly depending on your individual needs but often include specific home exercises and advice. It is very important to follow this advice to see changes in your symptoms.
At the end of your treatment we will inform your doctor of your progress. If required, we can also make requests for other referrals. An individually prescribed home exercise programme can be emailed or accessed via an app which can include instructional videos, reminders, and allows the young person or parent to provide feedback to physiotherapists.
