This website has been put together by hospital consultants, GPs, physiotherapists, and clinicians with a special interest in managing joint pain and rheumatological conditions.
The site represents their agreed approach to sharing knowledge and skills for people living with joint pain and rheumatological conditions and takes into account the latest national and international best practice guidelines on management.
It should be used in conjunction with advice given to you by your GP, physiotherapist or rheumatologist.
The website has been designed as a one-stop advice site for people in Sheffield to find out about musculoskeletal problems, how to manage them and what to do to prevent further problems.
Every effort has been made to avoid any influence from commercial bodies. Where recommendations are made for resources, these are based on quality and where authors believe they offer best benefit for patients.
