Common conditions impacting the musculoskeletal system

As we get older our body’s ability to adapt to the stress and strain of everyday activities can affect people to a varying degree. Factors such as birth deformities, age, lifestyle (e.g. smoking, alcohol, inactivity), as well as some medications can make us more susceptible to certain musculoskeletal conditions. If you are concerned about your bone, muscle or joint health, speak to your healthcare practitioner (GP, Chartered Physiotherapist, Nurse, Consultant).

They can give you specific advice, tailored to your individual concerns and needs. Early diagnosis is important for the best treatment and results. X- Rays, bone density (DXA), CT, and MRI scans are examples of painless imaging techniques that may be used when examining the tissues of your musculoskeletal system.
