Musculoskeletal conditions are wreaking havoc on many employees and having a direct impact on organizations’ bottom lines—but there’s more employers can do than simply paying for pricey surgical procedures. Smart employers need to pay attention to the lifestyle issues that contribute to musculoskeletal pain.
Diet, stress, mental health, and lifestyle all impact pain levels in the back and joints. In fact, studies demonstrate that recovery depends on lifestyle change, whether it’s eating less sugar, losing weight, exercising more, or reducing stress and depression. That’s why over 700 employers have adopted a more holistic MSK care approach that combines physical therapy with lifestyle changes including tackling diet, weight, and stress and depression. A a result of this lifestyle medicine approach: Employers saw better outcomes at lower spend. Employees on average experienced a 69% drop in MSK pain and saved up to $3,523 worth of surgery claims per person.
After the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Understand the latest research on how & why member MSK outcomes improve when treated holistically with a lifestyle medicine approach
- Take back to their organization how they can implement an integrated digital MSK care and lifestyle medicine approach for their employees
- Walk away with how they can drive better member outcomes and reduce their MSK surgery claims
