Pathology of the musculoskeletal system is widespread in the population and, together with involutive changes are among the most frequent diseases of elderly patients. The most significant of them – osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and sarcopenia. All three components in isolation, of course, lead to reduced quality of life. In this paper, the problem of interference of these states and their joint impact on the musculoskeletal system as a target organ; examined ways to improve the diagnostic search of osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and sarcopenia. It was noted that in addition to performing standard diagnostic algorithm of these states, the important is to use specialized (geriatric) diagnostics. It emphasizes that, given the integration of the pathology of the musculoskeletal system for the effectiveness of medical and medico-social rehabilitation programs require the use and development is integrated techniques.
