Musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders, which include joint, back and other muscle/bone problems, have a high prevalence and are a top healthcare cost driver. In a recent survey, 44% of employers ranked MSK disorders as the top health condition impacting their costs while 85% ranked it among the top three conditions. In addition to the cost of care, MSK disorders also cause a high degree of absenteeism and low productivity among workers. For these reasons, employers are especially interested in better care delivery models for MSK.
