Self-help

Use the resources in our Self-help section to find out more about your condition or injury and the things you can do to help manage it yourself. Your specialist will also advise you on what’s right for you as part of your care.

There’s advice on common upper limb, lower limb, back and generalised muscle and joint problems. We also have a guide to managing pain with useful tips on controlling long-term pain and easing discomfort. Our keep healthy and active section focuses on recovering from illness and injury and staying fit.
