The Musculoskeletal System: the Science of Staying Active into Old Age

Demystify the ageing process and how our everyday behaviours and choices are likely to affect our long-term musculoskeletal health

With a wealth of seemingly contradictory information in the media about healthy living, sport and ageing, this free online course will demystify the ageing process and show you how our everyday behaviours and choices affect our long-term musculoskeletal health.

This course has been developed by the MRC-Arthritis Research UK Centre for Integrated research into Musculoskeletal Ageing (CIMA), a collaboration between the Universities of Liverpool, Sheffield and Newcastle. Each institution holds world-leading expertise in areas of musculoskeletal ageing and together, within the CIMA collaboration, their expertise cover a broad spectrum of musculoskeletal health.
