After mental health and cardiac health, treating musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions uses more NHS resources than any other diseases. Around 20% of all GP consultations are MSK related, and it accounts for around 25% of all surgical interventions. The most common MSK condition, osteoarthritis, also known as chronic joint pain, affects over 8.75 million people in the UK. Low back and neck pain specifically, is the greatest cause of years lost to disability.

We support people with osteoarthritis through early intervention and a focus on prevention and self-care. We have also worked extensively to train people from other sectors to support with MSK care and intervention, so they can offer a safe and cost-effective alternative to GP consultations.
