Therapies staff working in the Cynon Valley and Merthyr have come up with an innovative way to provide virtual care and reassurance to patients during the Coronavirus pandemic.
A campaign highlighting the many healthcare services available in the local community has been launched across Merthyr Tydfil, Rhondda Cynon Taf and Bridgend.
A new physio service in Bridgend means patients no longer have to see their GP to be referred for specialist treatment.
In January 2019 Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board physiotherapy staff teamed up with Merthyr Tydfil Leisure Centre to provide physiotherapy rehabilitation to patients in the community who need treatment for Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL). ACL is one of the key ligaments that help stabilize your knee joint and one of the most beneficial treatments for this type of injury is strength testing.
Patients with back, leg and hip pain are being helped to better health with quick access to expert physiotherapists.
