Muscle Clinics at Central Remedial Clinic
MD Muscle Clinic Team at the CRC
The Muscle clinics at the CRC were started in 1985 to provide a Team Approach to management of Neuromuscular Disorders and facilitate families by having appointments with various consultants and therapists at the same centre and on the same day.
The Muscle Clinic Team is a Multidisciplinary Team and consists of:
· Paediatric Neurologist
· Orthopaedic Surgeon
· Occupational Therapist
· Family Support Worker, MDI
· Seating Department
· Nursing Department
It may not be necessary for each client to be seen by every discipline at every visit but they can be seen as required.
The CRC has two types of Muscle clinic. The “Young Muscle Clinic“ for the newly referred and younger clients and the “ Combined Muscle Clinic” which the Orthopaedic surgeon attends and which is mainly for the older clients and anyone requiring an Orthopaedic opinion. Muscle Clinics are held at the CRC on Mondays.
Most clients are reviewed every 6 months. After each visit the team members will liaise with the client’s local services to report on the outcome / recommendations.
If you require any further information, please contact MDI Head Office or your local Family Support Worker.
