Get to know MSK



Welcome

Musculoskeletal Australia (MSK) has been supporting people with arthritis and musculoskeletal conditions for over 50 years.

MSK was founded in 1968, when Dr Leslie Koadlow, a passionate rheumatologist, decided more needed to be done to support people living with these conditions. Newly diagnosed patients kept coming to his clinic totally overwhelmed, isolated and confused about what their diagnosis meant and how they could live well.

A firm believer in the benefit of ‘real people helping real people’, he set up what was then known as 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.
