Together we can change a paradigm in MUSCULOSKELETAL HEALTH


Identified by Jo Abbott (PhD Studies)


DISORDER (MSD-1) phase of musculoskeletal imbalances. This gives a rehabilitation professional(s) the perfect opportunity to intervene early.

Using MSK screening and treatment to greatly reduce an individuals risk of progressing to DISEASE.


DISEASE (MSD-2) phase of musculoskeletal imbalances are where trauma to the body is more permanent.  Continued ADLs in an unbalanced body have accelerated wear and tear (premature ageing) of body.

Compensatory mechanisms are often fully integrated, and rehabilitation principles are focused around management of the diagnosis.


DISABILITY (MSD-3) is the end of the journey for the initial DISORDER (MSD-1).  World Health Organisation states 33% of the World’s population are within this group.

100% of this population are at risk of Coronary Heart Disease (CHD), Respiratory Disease, Obesity, Diabetes, and deteriorating Mental Health.

Fantastic. I saw Jo back in early December and it was really refreshing to take the focus away from firefighting... specific areas and start to understand from head to toe what is happening. Jo encourages you to take ownership and responsibility for your rehab and it's great to start to understand what is happening and why. I'm early on in my journey but feel motivated to follow Jo's advice and break that cycle. Jo is really passionate about what she does and you feel that she is on the journey with you which is quite rare. Watch this more

PRO-MSK health needs to be a paradigm shift for all.

Jo Abbott’s Ph.D. campaign:

STOP waiting for an MSK ‘trigger’ to tell us something’s wrong.  There ARE ways to screen your musculoskeletal system to ensure it’s not going to break.

Let’s change the REACTIVE nature of musculoskeletal science and practice to one of PROactivity.

Please help Jo Abbott raise the paradigm for PRO-MSK Health.
