Musculoskeletal conditions affect the body’s muscles, bones, joints, nerves, tendons, cartilage, or spinal discs. They are one of the leading causes of visits to primary healthcare practitioners each year and can substantially affect physical and mental quality of life.

Low back pain

Low back pain is the most common musculoskeletal disease worldwide, affecting 577 million people. Most cases of lower back pain are mechanical. Mechanical low back pain results from weakness in the muscles surrounding the spine.


Arthritis is a common condition that causes pain and inflammation of the joints. Inflammatory arthritis (Rheumatoid Arthritis / Ankylosing Spondylitis) occurs when the body’s immune system attacks its own joints.

We are advocates for the role that Lifestyle Medicine can play in maintaining and improving health and well-being. Lifestyle Medicine is healthcare that centres around alterations to patient behaviour to improve physical and mental health where the use of medicines may be inadequate. Factors of lifestyle which can influence health include:

  • Maintaining social connections
  • Healthy eating
  • Engaging in physical activity
  • Ensuring adequate sleep
  • Minimisation of harmful substances and behaviours

Lifestyle Medicine can help in cases of musculoskeletal pain in various ways. For example:

  • Healthy eating can reduce the amount of inflammatory foods we consume. Inflammatory foods, including fried foods and sweetened drinks, can contribute to Rheumatoid Arthritis and other inflammatory musculoskeletal conditions.
  • Engaging in physical activity can strengthen the muscles, reducing the pressure on the joints, thus improving joint health. Hence, exercise can help improve pain in an arthritic knee or mechanical back pain caused by weakness in the spinal muscles.
  • Inadequate sleep has been associated with worsening pain, physical ability, and mental health in patients with musculoskeletal problems. On the other hand, ensuring sound sleep can lead to better treatment outcomes.

Although lifestyle changes can improve health and well-being in many cases of musculoskeletal pain, some patients may require more rigorous medical treatment.

Rest assured that if our clinicians deem you to require care outside of Lifestyle Medicine, you will be referred for the appropriate treatments or investigations.
