A massive congratulations and Thank You to all of our magnificent London Marathon runners, who have trained long and hard for the Marathon and raised so much money for BackCare. You are all incredible.
No single specialty is in a position to make a bigger contribution to this agenda than rheumatology. Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) represent the single biggest cause of sickness absence in the UK, accounting for more than 30 million sick days taken in 2013
