Musculoskeletal Conditions

The main research focus is in the area of musculoskeletal conditions. This work is carried out by multi-disciplinary teams of academics and clinicians, with input from active research user groups. Our research aims to contribute towards preventing musculoskeletal conditions from starting, getting worse or causing long-term disability in later life. These conditions, which include low back pain, chronic pain, regional pain, osteoarthritis, and multi-morbidities, are researched using a range of traditional and innovative approaches and methods.
