Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist

Musculoskeletal disorders such as back and neck pain present major health care issues with significant impact on the individual, family and workplace productivity.

In 40-70% of people, back and neck pain recovers fully with little or no treatment required. The remaining 30-60% continue to suffer from back or neck pain for an extended period and contribute much to the medical costs associated with spinal pain.

Physiotherapists are experts in the management of musculoskeletal problems and spinal pain. However for patients, doctors, health professionals, insurers, and legal practitioners looking for specific expertise for musculoskeletal problems, it is important to be aware that there are differing levels of expertise within physiotherapy field.

There are currently three levels of clinical expertise within musculoskeletal physiotherapy. General Physiotherapists, Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists, and Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists.

Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists have undertaken advanced specialty training and undergone rigorous oral and clinical examinations to be awarded fellowship in the Australian College of Physiotherapists. Accordingly, Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists are recognised by their fellowship status indicated by the lettering F.A.C.P.

Currently, there are approximately 40 Specialist Physiotherapists in Australia, and approximately 8 practicing Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists in Melbourne. David Francis F.A.C.P, the Director of Physioworks Health Group, heads the practice team at Physioworks Cranbourne.
