Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist

Musculoskeletal disorders such as back and neck pain present major health care issues with huge effects on the individual suffer, family and work-related productivity.

In 40-70% of people, back and neck pain recovers fully with little or no treatment required. The remaining 30-60% of people however, 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: Generalist 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 100+ Specialist Physiotherapists in Australia, including David Francis F.A.C.P.* the Director of Physioworks Health Group, who heads the practice team at Physioworks Health Group Pakenham
