According to other learners, here's what you need to know

old age in 7 reviews

I now know that maintaining my muscular skeletal health is pivotal to a healthy, active and long old age.

The course clearly demonstrates how combining the most appropriate types and levels of exercise with the best nutrition can clearly help us to maintain our best possible health into old age.

This course is aimed at older people, their carers and professionals working with them who want to understand how the body works and how they can keep it working well into old age.

Wonderful insightful course which opened my eyes to many things I could be improving upon to stay fit and mobile into my old age.

very informative in 7 reviews

I thought the course was excellent, very informative about the need to do some exercise, whatever you can manage of course, basically " if you don't move it, you lose it" Great advice about the sort of foods to eat, at any age, but more specifically as we age.

A very informative and worth while course.

A very informative course highlighting the the body's ageing process and how we, ourselves, can play a role in maintaining good muskuloskeletal health.

Very informative, and showed me ways to easily tweak my habits to healthier ones.

musculoskeletal system in 6 reviews

I found it outstanding and would recommend it to anyone wanting to know more about the musculoskeletal system, particularly as it is presented in a non scientific and truly understandable way in which everyone can take part.

I would recommend this course to anyone with any difficulties or illness that effects your Musculoskeletal System as the course covers so many aspects and in so many ways; you really have to do the course to appreciate what knowledge can be gained.

For example, I was surprised at how little proteins beans/pulses had in comparison to other foods A real eye opener as to what happens to your musculoskeletal system as you grow older, and how to reduce the effects.

It is both suitable for participants without prior education in the musculoskeletal system and also as a primer for those with previous education.

I recommend this course for all those interested in learning about the function and ageing of the musculoskeletal system.

I really quite enjoyed this course I enjoyed getting further information on the effect of ageing on the Musculoskeletal system .
