Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) can account for 20% of your medical spend.
MSDs affect more than 50% of adults in the United States. They are often the largest clinical cost driver for commercial employers, accounting for upwards of 20% of annual medical spend, according to the United States Bone and Joint Initiative.
MSDs have high cost for employers, but are not often addressed. According to Healthentic data, for every 1000 people you cover, you spend an average of $1.72 million on MSDs every year. Most employers spend twice as much on musculoskeletal conditions as they do on cardiovascular disease, yet most employers focus more attention on cardiovascular disease.
Procedures and surgeries account for much of their cost, many with little long-term benefit. The high cost of musculoskeletal conditions is driven primarily by procedures and surgical interventions. A 2009 paper published in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine showed a 62% increase in per capita spending on musculoskeletal treatments. In addition to higher treatment costs and risk, research shows that many invasive musculoskeletal interventions provide little or no long-term benefit.
individuals who have back pain are more likely to also experience a range of mental health issues. People with chronic back pain are three times more likely to experience a depressive episode and 2.6 times more likely to experience psychosis according to a journal published by General Hospital Psychiatry.
