More people visit doctors for musculoskeletal problems than for any other reason. Musculoskeletal conditions include arthritis and osteoporosis as well as injuries to the bones, muscles, tendons or ligaments. However, getting accurate diagnoses and effective care for these conditions can be as frustrating as living with the pain.
