This chapter provides an overview of musculoskeletal conditions, highlighting briefly the impact and the potential future burden of these conditions. Nurses and health professionals pay a key role in offering positive support to those presenting with musculoskeletal conditions. Guidance may be simply offering information that may enhance self-management, access to patient support groups, or referral to different treatment pathways based upon medical or surgical options. Nurses should be conversant with resources available. Links to a number of patient-focused websites that offer information on access employment, disability aids, and disease-specific support are provided.
