The Burden of Musculoskeletal Disease


Back Pain 


Musculoskeletal conditions remain common, chronic, and costly.
Joint and back pain are just a few of the conditions that affect millions of Americans, not only physically and financially, but emotionally.

Beyond these statistics, the human toll in terms of the diminished quality of life is immeasurable. This situation is unlikely to improve in the foreseeable future and will likely be intensified by current demographic trends. The prevalence of pain and musculoskeletal injuries and conditions will affect most Americans in their lifetime.

The presentation will cover what musculoskeletal injuries are, how current courses of treatment address this disease class, and exercises that can be performed at work and at home. Attendees will leave the presentation with a better understanding of their conditions and resolution for their pain and suffering.
