Discussion Group: On the Frontlines - Solving the Billion Dollar Problem
Musculoskeletal conditions have quickly become the largest cost to insurance companies, but the biggest cost is to our own long-term health.
- 1.71 Billion individuals worldwide have a musculoskeletal condition
- 568 Million of these cases are low back pain
- 1 in 2 adults experience musculoskeletal pain
- 80% of these chronic conditions can be prevented with lifestyle changes
Ignoring conditions and labeling them as "normal aging pains" has not worked. It is up to each of us to take this global musculoskeletal crisis into our own hands. As fitness and healthcare professionals, we are on the frontlines and have the opportunity to effect positive change on these ever increasing statistics. FMS is dedicated to providing tools to our professionals to begin fighting for our long-term health.
Gray Cook and Lee Burton, co-founders of FMS, had an open conversation with our community to discuss how we all can be part of the solution to this worldwide crisis.
