Bone and joint health: Reflecting the social mosaic
Published: Monday 31st July 2017
In the musculoskeletal field it is becoming increasingly clear that human skeletal health is influenced by a mosaic (or combination) of social and biological factors: indeed, the human skeleton could be considered a reflection of our social lives.
In this August installment of the IHA Live Long Live Well Colloquium, Dr Brennan-Olsen will summarize the evidence-base regarding social disadvantage and associations with lower bone quality, an increased fracture risk, and a greater prevalence of arthritis diseases. She will present results from a selection of studies that she and her team have conducted regarding social determinants and musculoskeletal health, including the role played by childhood adversity, chronic stress and inflammation on bone and joints.
