ChamplainMSKcare is a website hosted by the Champlain Regional Orthopaedic Network to help you learn more about musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions affecting your spine, shoulders, legs, or feet and how you can receive care.

The information on this site is meant to complement any information provided by your primary care provider or orthopaedic surgeon.

About MSKCare

The ChamplainMSKcare.ca website is designed to assist you to better understand musculoskeletal conditions affecting your spine, shoulders, legs or feet. It will also assist your family doctor or nurse practitioner (PCP) in choosing appropriate treatments, and how to refer to regional services, so you will receive care as quickly as possible.

Depending on your condition, your PCP will refer you to the Central Intake Centre where your symptoms, history and examination results will be assessed by a specialist who will recommend the best treatment (a process called triage).

Not all conditions require surgery. Where conservative treatments are most appropriate, we will connect you with practitioners and treatment plans that work for you and follow up with you as needed.

In cases where surgery is appropriate, we will work with you to find the most appropriate surgeon and location for your treatment.

Medical Conditions

Each medical condition section contains information that explains the anatomy of the relevant common musculoskeletal (MSK) problem, proven treatments or procedures, additional educational resources, and community care links.
