A team of leading researchers, including chiropractors, have founded a new research institute that aims to become a top centre for musculoskeletal health.
The researchers, from the University of Southern Denmark, have founded the
Center for Muscle and Joint Health.
With a stated aim of reducing the burden of musculoskeletal health, investigators will look at pain and functional loss in joints.Research has previously shown that a Dane loses an average of seven years of good quality of life due to pain and functional problems related to the musculoskeletal system. Muscle and joint disorders now constitute the major cause of functional impairment of populations in Europe – larger than other common disorders like depression, dementia and heart disease.
