MSK covers individual services like:

Aches and pains are a normal part of life. However, they can prevent you from carrying out your usual day-to-day activities and can make you feel worried and frustrated.

The good news is that most of the conditions that cause these aches and pains can be easily treated by you, at home.

MSK Together in partnership with Sheffield Aches and Pains, can provide the advice and information you need to help you look after yourself.

The Sheffield Aches and Pains website was created by Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
