"America's pain crisis: Pain is Personal and Traditional Musculoskeletal Care is Falling Short"

There is a growing crisis of chronic pain due to Musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions in America, and the associated healthcare costs are second only to cancer for 76% of employers. This eBook delves into the complexities of chronic pain, the shortcomings of traditional MSK care, and innovative solutions to enhance your employee’s well-being.

Much attention is rightly given to the mental health and opioid drug crisis plaguing Americans. Far less of a spotlight is put on the devastating and growing crisis of chronic pain—a problem that is inextricably linked to both of these issues, ultimately lowering Americans’ quality of life and resulting in skyrocketing healthcare costs.

Chronic pain is a personal and complex cycle. Research shows that treatments targeting both physical pain and mental health simultaneously are necessary to address either problem effectively.

The impact of chronic pain is substantial for employers:

  • 50% of all adults in the US have an MSK condition
  • Costs accrued for MSK treatment and lost wages range between $560 to $635 billion
  • People living with MSK pain missed an average of 10.3 days of work in 2021

This eBook serves as a crucial resource for HR managers seeking an understanding of America's pain crisis. Download now to learn more about the growing pain crisis, associated costs, gaps in current care, and innovation solutions to address it.
