A 2016 study showed cos ts related to Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) in the US were over $200 billion:
“In 2016, the Bone and Joint Initiative put forth evidence that 1 in every 2 American adults has an MSD, costing an estimated $213 billion each year in treatment and lost wages.”
For every dollar a company spends on MSDs, they’ll spend three to five times that on indirect costs such as productivity loss, rehiring, retraining and overtime.
