GET SUPPORTED


Musculoskeletal Australia is a charity representing over 7 million Australians living with arthritis, osteoporosis, back pain and other musculoskeletal conditions.


We’ve been supporting people with musculoskeletal conditions for 50 years.

It all started in 1968 when Dr Leslie Koadlow, a passionate rheumatologist, decided we could do better. Newly diagnosed patients kept coming to his clinic totally overwhelmed, isolated and confused about where to start.

A firm believer in the benefit of ‘real people helping real people’, he set up the Rheumatism and Arthritis Association of Victoria (RAAV) with his secretary Alice Petty and patient Mollie Riches. RAAV became a place for those living with musculoskeletal conditions to get informed and get supported.

Fifty years later we’re still helping people with information and support. We’re here to help you.
