Musculoskeletal Australia

Musculoskeletal Australia (formerly MOVE) is a national charity dedicated to improve the quality of life of people with, or at risk of developing, musculoskeletal conditions.

The work Musculoskeletal Australia does is actively supported by people with arthritis, osteoporosis, back pain and other musculoskeletal conditions, as well as our members, volunteers, health professionals, peer support groups, corporate and research partners.

They work collaboratively with these diverse groups of people to deliver evidence-based research, education, information, advocacy, policy and support services.
