New! MSK Kids Live – an online chatroom for kids with arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions.
Get excited! We now have a place where you can jump online and chat with other young people living with a musculoskeletal condition. Livewire is a safe space for people between the ages of 12-21 currently living with a chronic health condition, serious illness or disability. Siblings are also able to join as we know this stuff can really affect them as well!
Conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system include juvenile arthritis, fibromyalgia, back pain, Perthes, lupus, scleroderma, mixed connective tissue disease, hypermobility syndromes and many more. Musculoskeletal may sound like a big word but put simply it’s anything to do with the bones, muscles, joints, cartilage, ligaments and bursae in your body.
So…come chat with us and share your story! But don’t worry, you don’t have to chat about your medical history, you can chat about whatever’s occupying your mind. Music, films, school, sport, computer games, your favourite food or whatever. Jump online and connect today!
