Musculoskeletal (MSK) disease or impairments comprise more than 150 different diseases or conditions which internally affect the human system and are characterized by deficiencies in the muscles, bones, joints, and adjacent connective tissues, which lead to lifelong hindrances in functioning and participation. The conditions are characterized by pain, limited gait movement, and dexterity, thereby reducing people’s aptitude to work and participate in society.
The management of MSK diseases involves consultation with a physician, integrated with telemedicine, which is the use of digital biofeedback systems (DBSs), musculoskeletal-focused digital apps (MDAs), and therapies. Physical activity and weight management programs are also important self-management activities for persons with arthritis. Virtual therapy or remote consultation entails a holistic approach with the implementation of video conference and phone consultations in MSK practice.
North America Musculoskeletal (MSK) Disease Management Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, opportunities, restraints, and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail below:
- Technological advances in the diagnosis of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDS)
Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are injuries and disorders that affect the movement of the human body in the musculoskeletal (MSK) system, such as muscles, ligaments, nerves, tendons, cartilage, and discs. Some of the more common MSK conditions are myasthenia gravis, Osteoarthritis (OA), gout, Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), back pain, osteoporosis, and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). MSK pain has various causes. For example, muscle tissue can be damaged by wear and tear during daily activities. The strain on human body parts due to sprains, car accidents, falls, jerky movements, fractures, dislocations, and direct muscle blows also cause MSK pain.
- In June 2018, Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas, Inc. launched the SONIMAGE MX1 portable ultrasound system developed for MSK and orthopedic practices, interventional guidelines, and ambulatory care centers. The SONIMAGE MX1 is built with the power and portability that doctors need to safely and effectively diagnose at the point of care. In March 2018, Philips presented a new 3-tesla MRI scanner called Ingenia Elition 3.0T at ECR 2018 in Vienna.
Thus, innovative steps and technological advancements by market players to improve the quality and efficiency of therapeutic research for MSDs are expected to drive market growth in the coming years.
- Rising awareness about musculoskeletal disorders (MSDS)
MSK diseases are associated with sports, occupational accidents, and aging-related dysfunctions. Some of the most common MSK conditions include back pain, RA, OA, osteoporosis, septic arthritis, gout, myasthenia gravis, SLE, and others. MSK disease management involves the diagnosis and treatment of all acute and chronic diseases that affect the MSK system, that is, muscles, bones, tendons, joints, and ligaments, as well as the treatment of non-surgical injuries of the MSK system.
According to reports published by the Bone and Joint Diseases Associations, the three most common MSK conditions are arthritis, back pain, and trauma.
Henceforth, the rising awareness about MSDs is positively associated with market growth in the coming years.
- High cost of diagnosis and treatment of orthopedic diseases
Chronic orthopedic diseases such as arthritis and bursitis affect the MSK system- most often the bones or joints. They can cause pain and dysfunction, making normal daily activities difficult. These conditions are different from orthopedic injuries, such as a dislocated shoulder or broken bone, which are often caused by sudden trauma. Unlike accidental or traumatic orthopedic injuries, chronic conditions are usually progressive, starting slowly and worsening or developing over time. They may be genetic or age-related, or they may be caused by overuse.
Some orthopedic conditions are treatable, and some cannot be cured at this time but can be treated to reduce pain and improve quality of life. Accurate diagnosis and targeted treatment can help reduce problems even in progressive conditions without treatment. Treatment recommendations depend on the type and severity of your condition. Treatments range from RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation) to major surgery.
- Full genome-genome comparisons
- Rapid assessment of polymorphic genetic variations
- Complete construction of orthologous and paralogous groups of genes
- Structure determination of large macromolecular assemblies/complexes
- Dynamical simulation of realistic oligomer systems
All these diagnostic, as well as therapeutic procedures, involve high costs. Thus, the high cost of diagnosis and treatment of orthopedic disease is expected to restrain the market growth.

- Challenges faced by physicians while treating athletes with musculoskeletal (MSK) diseases
Although primary prevention mainly involves coaches and trainers, secondary and tertiary prevention of sport-related injuries, the reduction of injuries as well as their consequences to allowing effective sport participation, are the main challenges for healthcare professionals who treat athletes suffering from MSK diseases. Several unmet needs are required to be addressed, such as heterogeneous epidemiological data reporting sport-related MSK injury.
Various challenges of implementing next-generation sequencing in the clinical laboratory are as follows-
- The challenge faced in improving the prevention and management of Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Diseases (RMDs) is peripheral nerve repair which is a major challenge in clinical practice
- The special issue by the Italian Society for Unified and Interdisciplinary Management of Musculoskeletal Pain and Algodystrophy (Società Italiana per la Gestione Unificata e Interdisciplinare del Dolore muscolo-scheletrico e dell’Algodistrofia, SI-GUIDA) provided an overview of current epidemiological data, diagnostic challenges, and rationale of therapeutic strategies in the field of sport-related MSK diseases from the point of view of the three specialists most involved in the treatment of MSK pain, including the orthopedist, the rheumatologist, and the physiatrist.
MSK pain is a broad term for multiple conditions with different trajectories but collated together. They represent a substantial burden on physicians, patients (athletes), and the healthcare system. It is a challenging condition for both patients and physicians. Many adults have experienced one or more episodes of MSK pain at some time in their lives, regardless of age, gender, or economic status. In addition, the challenges faced by the physicians would result in less supply and distribution of digital (telehealth) products and less use of therapies. Therefore, the challenges faced by clinicians while treating athletes with MSK diseases are expected to challenge the market growth.
- In January 2021, DarioHealth Corp. acquired AI-enabled MSK assessment company Physimax. The acquisition resulted in the addition of AI solutions and investments in DarioHealth Corp. MSK care portfolio.
