Co-ordination key at new medical centre

Doctor Andrew Thompson said the Creaney Drive centre was designed to facilitate better communication between health practitioners.

‘By closely co-ordinating manual therapies with medical care and injection schedules ” cortisone, blood injections and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) ” we can maximise patient outcomes,’ he said.

‘This means a patient with chronic spinal pain can be treated with PRP and followed up with treatment by a physiotherapist specialising in spinal pain within 24 hours without waiting for pathology or imaging results.’
