This report of a roundtable held by the Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Alliance (ARMA) highlights inequalities in relation to the prevalence of, and access to treatment for musculoskeletal conditions (MSKs). MSKs include a broad range of health conditions affecting the bones, joints, muscles and spine, as well as rarer autoimmune conditions such as lupus. Their incidence is correlated with deprivation, age, sex and ethnicity.
The report addresses MSK inequalities in the following categories:
- Digital access and health literacy
- Children and young people
- Waiting lists
- Care gap
- Status of MSK
