Canterbury & West Coast Musculoskeletal Service

​​​​​​Who we are

Canterbury and West Coast Musculoskeletal Service is a publicly funded service for patients with non-urgent musculoskeletal conditions that do not require surgery.

The Musculoskeletal Specialty focuses on problems, including pain, in muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and bones. The exception to this is inflammatory joint disease which is usually dealt with by Rheumatologists.

Orthopaedic Surgeons deal with the surgical management of these problems.

Many patients presenting with these problems respond well to a non-surgical approach. ​​
