According to a study conducted in 2006 by the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS), musculoskeletal symptoms (e.g., pain, ache, soreness, discomfort, cramps, etc.) were the number two reason for physician visits. More than one in four Americans has a musculoskeletal impairment, and these disorders cost the United States nearly $850 billion yearly. The study also showed that there were more than 132 million physician visits for musculoskeletal symptoms and over seven million Americans required hospitalization for orthopedic conditions.
Despite this overwhelming need, the U.S. Department of Labor found that only 3-4% of practicing physicians are orthopedic surgeons, with the number reaching a measly 25,464 in 2008.
