The largest patient group treated by physiotherapists is people suffering from musculoskeletal disorders (MSD). A staggering 6.7 million people visited physiotherapists in the last few couple of years, with both first appointments and follow ups, with MSD.
It’s such a common problem, with 1 in 4 adults affected by chronic MSD in England alone. There are so many variations of the problem; in fact, there are over 200 types of MSD. The most common is lower back pain with 80% of people experiencing it at some point in their life.
Musculoskeletal disorders are not only physically detrimental; they are also a financial burden. 60% of people on long-term sick leave cite a MSD as the cause. But physiotherapists can help. Getting physiotherapy as quickly as possible can help tremendously, often preventing an acute problem from becoming chronic and long-lasting. This in turn, reduces the amount of time people are off sick. Physiotherapy really is a cost-effective and clinically effective treatment.
