Once you have registered (which we will give more details on in the sections to follow), you will be able to arrange an initial video consultation with your physiotherapist.   The exercise programme is run over 12 weeks, as this is the ideal timeframe to assess whether you’re likely to benefit from the exercises and advice contained within the programme and includes 2 further follow-ups with your physiotherapist.  You can also message the physiotherapist at any time during the programme, ensuring you’re supported throughout.

During your program, you will receive two easy exercises with video instructions every day in the app. They take 5-10 minutes to perform. After completing an exercise, you report to your Physical Therapist how it went. If necessary, your Physical Therapist will adapt the exercise according to your pain and your physical ability. Initially, the exercises will be of a simpler nature so that you get used to the movements and find the right technique. The exercises will gradually increase in difficulty as you become stronger, have less pain and feel safer. This is guided by your Physical Therapist and your feedback in your regular follow-ups.

If your symptoms do not improve, your physiotherapist will discuss this with you at the final follow-up.  They will then transfer your care back to us at Circle Integrated Care. We will assess this information and arrange the most appropriate next step for you, whether this if a face-to-face assessment, referral for an X-Ray or other test, or getting booked in for an injection.

Once you have decided that this is a treatment route that suits you, it is important that you let us know as soon as possible.   We will provide you with a 4-digit code, so that you are able to access the course for NHS treatment for free.

I’ve had an excellent experience at MSK in Bedford. From the physio – who was superb, through to the consultant app.

The exercises they prescribed made a difference in 3 days and now just over a week after seeing them, the pain is MILES better.
