What is it about?

The Investigating Musculoskeletal Health and Wellbeing study aims to measure and describe the development and progression of pain, frailty and disability in an ageing UK population.

Why is it important?

This study will identify how pain, frailty and disability progress and how they are linked together. It will allow us to identify people at risk of poor musculoskeletal health and wellbeing who might be suitable for specific interventions to improve their health outcomes in the future.
