Musculo-Skeletal Conditions Are Still the Most Costly…                      And Getting Worse

The International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans recently published the outcomes of their Workplace Wellness Trends Survey. What we found most interesting was an answer to the question, what conditions had the most impact on a company’s health care costs between 2012-2019?

As shown in their data, musculo-skeletal conditions represent the greatest impact on health care costs and, unfortunately, these musculo-skeletal conditions appear to be getting worse.

These outcomes support the IPCS findings that continue to show that the muscular strength of the worker is 12-15% weaker today than 10 years ago and the worker is 13 lbs heavier. In addition, the worker’s strength to body weight ratio is on the decline which means the worker’s strength relative to his/her body weight is putting them at greater risk for injury and certain diseases. As the physical fitness of the worker continues to decline, the costs associated with musculo-skeletal conditions will only get worse.
