Directory of Musculoskeletal Doctors

Medical Practitioners practising Musculoskeletal Medicine in NZ, depending on their training, qualifications and vocational registration fall into 2 groups:

  1. Specialist Musculoskeletal Physicians who are accredited and vocationally registered with the NZ Medical Council to specialize in Musculoskeletal Medicine and have passed the Australasian Faculty of Musculoskeletal Medicine Fellowship exams.
  2. General Practitioners who have passed the Postgraduate Diploma of Musculoskeletal Medicine and who practice Musculoskeletal Medicine as part of General Practice. They are vocationally registered as General Practitioners.

From this database, it is possible to find the medical practitioners in your area involved in Musculoskeletal Medicine. If you wish to see a specialist, then referral by your own GP is preferable. This allows continuity of care, as well as advantages of cost with regards to ACC ,Health Insurers or Publically funded clinics. (All ACC referrals by an ACC registered provider to a Musculoskeletal Specialist incur NO cost to the patient)

Musculoskeletal medicine concerns the diagnosis and treatment of dysfunction, diseases and disorders of the musculoskeletal system. This includes bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, cartilage and other connective tissue. Musculoskeletal disorders are very common, and people usually suffer pain and disability as a result of injury or dysfunction affecting the spine, pelvic or shoulder girdle, or to the upper and lower limbs. These may have occurred as a result of injury or of a gradual onset condition, such as osteoarthritis. There is a wide variety of treatments, including medication, pain management, exercise and rehabilitation programmes, education and support.

Medical Practitioner Bio Contacts

Jenny Keightley


MB.ChB; Dip Obst; Dip MSM; FRNZCGP

I am vocationally registered as a GP and have worked for many years in General Practice whilst raising three children. I completed the Postgraduate Diploma in Musculoskeletal Medicine in 2006 and continue to develop my knowledge and skills in this fascinating field. My interest is mainly in manual therapy and training people for self-management, believing we should avoid complex, costly and more risky treatments unless necessary. My interest in research and evidence allows me to inform you about the choices you have if referral is needed.
