Movement, for nearly one in two Americans over the age of 18, and many children, is restricted by a musculoskeletal bone or joint disorder — arthritis, back pain, fractures, osteoporosis, sports trauma, and other ailments which affect function and mobility.

As part of the Global Alliance for Musculoskeletal Health, US patient and healthcare professional organizations, industry, medical schools, government agencies, and health systems providers have come together as part of the United States Bone and Joint Initiative (USBJI) to improve prevention of bone and joint disorders, and the quality of life for those affected.

Through its key initiatives and Bone and Joint Alliance, USBJI strives to improve the musculoskeletal health of Americans by working collaboratively across sectors.
