Musculoskeletal conditions affect an estimated 17.8 million people in the UK (Arthritis Research UK) and are on the rise. Unhealthy lifestyles, an ageing population, rising obesity rates and reduced physical activity are contributing to poor musculoskeletal health. How can diet and nutrition support musculoskeletal health not only for older consumers but also younger consumers in pursuit of an active lifestyle? During this session leading experts will examine the latest advances in the nutritional management of musculoskeletal health.
