Musculoskeletal conditions have a significant impact on older people’s lives.6

Osteoarthritis is the second biggest cause of disability in the elderly – second only to cardiovascular disease.7 NICE reports that 8.5million people in the UK are affected by joint pain that may be attributed to osteoarthritis.4

The impact of the condition on everyday life cannot be underestimated; more than one third of the UK’s over-50s say arthritic pain interferes with their normal activities, contributing to a worsening quality of life.8

In these case studies, people living with the reality of long-term pain tell us about the toll it takes on their daily lives.
