The CMAPS service provides physiotherapy care to patients across Dudley who have either developed or are managing a musculoskeletal condition such as osteoarthritis, back pain, injuries sustained after an accident, work related conditions & sporting injuries. The service consists of three strands that are explained in the graphic below. The service aim is to ensure that anyone with a musculoskeletal complaint can access the right clinician at the earliest point in their journey and is then subsequently supported within the service in a timely manner. The service prides itself on embracing innovative practice & technology to delivering high quality care within an environment that is accessible for individual patient needs.
