Improved treatment for musculoskeletal health in Wales

People in Wales with Musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions including osteoporosis and arthritis are benefitting from new methods of treatment.

Health boards are providing wellness coaches, voucher schemes, group coaching and discounted gym memberships.

This is all part of a plan to improve patient outcomes, better support people on waiting lists to manage their conditions and provide equal care across Wales.

'A Healthier Wales' means the government is working on initiatives such as earlier access to services, prehabilitation, and digital tools for patients.

Minister for Health and Social Services, Eluned Morgan said: "It is fantastic to see the wide range of care available to those suffering with musculoskeletal conditions. We know the physical pain MSK conditions can have as well as a debilitating effect on mental health and wellbeing, these services will make a real difference for people living and managing these conditions and their families.

"MSK health is influenceable and we can improve it by transforming services to focus on prevention and building sustainability in the system. Creating systemic change is never an easy task but by transforming the services we offer now whilst bringing down waiting lists is vital if we want to stop the waiting list growing in the future and help people to live healthier lives.
