Musculoskeletal disorders

We are witnessing a constant de-conditioning and literally premature aging as a result of a collective decrease in physical activity, unprecedented time spent sitting, and incorrect posture among the current generations. This fact alone implies that younger people are complaining of more medical conditions sooner, leading to a tremendous financial burden on governments and corporations at an unsustainable rate. The current economic climate has created more stress physically and emotionally with increased demands on existing employees to produce more efficiently. Companies must invest in the health and prevention of musculoskeletal conditions for they lead to the more serious visceral conditions such as digestive problems, hormonal imbalances, obesity, headaches, depression etc.

What is your MSDscore?

  • Absenteeism

    According to research by Mercer, Musculoskeletal disorders (MSD’s) were identified as the cause of 78% of absences.

    Studies show that rarely are your employees working at 100% productivity rates. This is due to symptoms, medical conditions, or even side effects from treatments and/or medication, inevitably resulting in significant indirect medical costs:

    “Unlike absenteeism, presenteeism isn't always apparent. You know when someone doesn't show up for work, but you often can't tell when - or how much - illness or people will miss work in the next 2 months due to musculoskeletal disorders in the workplace. a medical condition hinders someone's performance” Harvard Business Review, Oct. 2004
    Bank One (JPMorgan Chase & Co. since 2004) concluded this a few years ago, when the company did a breakdown of its medical costs:

    Following our philosophy that “Wellness is a Lifestyle”, our one-of-a-kind pioneer method delivers unprecedented medical Cost Avoidance.

    We help companies analyze, correct and prevent all compo- nents that cause health related productivity loss - empowering their employees with greater productivity, job satisfaction, lower absenteeism and presenteeism.

    It is a proven phenomenon that 20% of employees are responsible for 80% of the direct and indirect medical costs and lost productivity. Our objective is to detect and convert the high cost members to a low cost, and more importantly prevent the low cost members from transitioning into higher costs.


    The nervous system runs throughout our body composed of nerves that are transmitting electrical and chemical impulses that promote the functioning of our body.

    Without interruptions or external interferences the body has the ability to function in a nearly perfect state, which translates into health and wellbeing. If any interference occurs, the nervous system cannot send the proper signal or information.

    Thus, any interference in the nervous system caused by poor posture when sitting, standing or lifting objects may adversely affect how it relates to the organs and the various body functions resulting in most medical conditions and symptoms responsible for absenteeism and presenteeism.

    We have been saving companies millions per year in direct and indirect medical costs since 2006.
