Musculo-skeletal (MSK)

The Global Burden of disease study identified musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions, particularly lower back pain, as being a significant health burden. This falls primarily on working age adults and is therefore potentially an important indicator of workforce health. Additionally, because of reduced mobility associated with MSK conditions this can increase the risk of other conditions (e.g. CVD) and the likelihood of a fall.

Key Statistics

MSK prevelance and outcome indicaters are drawn from the Physical Activity profile (PHE). * indicates a statistically significant difference from the respective English Average; * indicates missing data.
