Social prescribing and musculoskeletal health

Social prescribing link workers will see many people with Musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions such as back pain or arthritis. These are often long-term conditions which people will be managing for many years. Social prescribing has the potential to support people with MSK conditions and to reduce the chances of future MSK problems.

The Social prescribing and musculoskeletal conditions document is aimed at social prescribers without a specific MSK service or background in MSK conditions. It will help you use social prescribing to make a difference to people’s lives and become a champion for the importance of good MSK health.

“Our link workers will certainly benefit from having this in their toolkit. They will be better able to understand their client’s needs and sign post them onto the most pertinent services and extra resources.”
