• Oxford Pain, Activity and Lifestyle study

Welcome to the website for the OPAL study - the Oxford Pain, Activity and Lifestyle study. The OPAL study is a 5-year survey study which looks at how people's health and physical activity change over time. With the help of GP practices, we are aiming to gather information from over 4,000 older people from across England.
