Symptomatic locomotor abnormalities are common in medical in-patients, form a significant part of a general practitioner's workload, and are the single most important factor influencing disability in later life.
That any qualifying doctor should have basic competencies with respect to the locomotor system thus seems appropriate.
A survey of medical schools undertaken jointly by the Arthritis and Rheumatism Council (ARC) and British Society for Rheumatology (BSR) in 1990, however, suggests that the locomotor system still has a relatively low priority in undergraduate medical training.
