A Southampton University student’s research into arthritis has won him a prestigious award.

Christopher Manson did a research essay that looked at how psychological treatment may improve the management and treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.

Now his hard work has paid off and seen him win £250 and a silver medal from Arthritis Research UK as he clinched the medical student prize in musco-skeletal medicine.

The 29-year-old medical student, who lives in Gordon Avenue in the Portswood area of Southampton, said: “I was delighted to have had the opportunity to conduct this research and would like to thank Arthritis Research UK for their recognition of my work.

“Rheumatoid arthritis can be extremely debilitating. My essay explored whether psychological treatments have a role in the treatment and its management, with a particular focus on pain.”
