Movement, for nearly one in two Americans over the age of 18, and many children, is restricted by a musculoskeletal disorder — arthritis, back pain, fracture, osteoporosis, sports trauma, and other ailments which affect function and mobility.
As part of the Global Alliance for Musculoskeletal Health, which was previously known as the Bone and Joint Decade; U.S. patient and healthcare professional organizations, medical schools, government agencies, health systems providers and industry, 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. This goal begins with increased awareness, solid information and more research.
The USBJI believes that advances to improve the musculoskeletal health of Americans are most likely to occur by working collaboratively.
