Providing fast, accurate diagnosis and effective solutions for your musculoskeletal injury
Dr Mark Gillett, Consultant in Sport and Exercise Medicine leads the Rapid Access Clinic on Mondays 1.30pm – 8pm and Wednesdays 10am – 6pm each week.
This service is available to anyone who has a musculoskeletal problem i.e. one affecting bone, joint, ligament, tendon, muscle or nerve – from professional athletes to recreational sports participants, from the office worker to those involved in manual labour, from adolescents to those of retirement age.
One of the key aims of the Rapid Access Injury Clinic is to provide a fast, direct route for patients to see our musculoskeletal specialist, in order to establish an accurate diagnosis and provide an effective, evidence-based management plan. This cuts out unnecessary delays which can result in a prolonged absence from the desired activity (sport/hobby) or work.
It may be necessary to have some form of investigation/imaging in order to achieve the correct diagnosis – patients will be informed of this by Dr Gillett at their initial consultation.
Dr Gillett works closely with Perform Lead Physiotherapist David Hyde to provide conservative (non-surgical), evidence-based solutions wherever possible to your musculoskeletal problems.
The service will be particularly relevant in a number of scenarios:
Some common conditions we treat include:
Spire Little Aston Hospital has full access to X-ray, MRI and CT diagnostics on-site eliminating any further potential delays to achieving an accurate diagnosis.
Our late afternoon/evening clinic provides flexibility for appointments around work and other schedules and with free car parking, Spire Perform aims to make the process as easy as possible. Whether you are low on time due to a hectic lifestyle or pressures of returning to your sport, the Rapid Access Injury Clinic will get you back to fitness as quickly as possible.
