Problems with muscles, bones and joints are known as musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions. There’s a lot you can do at home to help your recovery from most injuries or conditions relating to these areas.
How you access your local health board’s MSK services has changed over the last few years. Some services require a referral from a healthcare professional at your GP surgery while others you can self-refer to, this varies across the country.
MSK services can include:

— hand therapy
