From sudden and short-lived injuries, such as fractures and sprains, to lifelong conditions associated with ongoing disability or functioning limitations, musculoskeletal conditions afflict approximately 1.71 billion people worldwide according to the World Health Organization. In fact, musculoskeletal disorders are the leading cause of disability in the U.S.
