When it comes to healthcare, the true desire of most Individuals is to live a long and healthy life. To have great relationships. To contribute to society. To be Well.
Achieving Wellness may seem to some like pursuing the Impossible Dream. And yet, such challenges have not prevented many from the pursuit nonetheless.
Interestingly, the greatest risk most people face when it comes to overall Wellness is not Cancer or Diabetes or Heart Disease or any one of several other serious conditions. This biggest risk is musculoskeletal health and the potential of injuring one or more joints in the body.
It turns out that the human body has over 350 joints, each comprised of bone, muscle, and connective tissue. And each year, Americans spend over $1 trillion* in musculoskeletal healthcare costs.
What is surprising, however, is that few people understand that many potential MSH risks can be identified and addressed before they become actual injuries.
That’s why we’ve created the J-Score™ — an easy-to-understand yet peer-reviewed scoring system that quickly identifies the current and potential joint-injury risk factors for the entire body or for a portion of a body, such as an arm or leg, or your back or neck.
In many ways a J-Score is similar in concept to a Cholesterol Score or a Blood Sugar Score in that it provides a number (from 100—399) to identify an individual’s risk for suffering a joint injury in advance.
And each J-Score is securely tied to one’s
- Personal Health History,
- Family Health History,
- Daily Activities,
- Body Type, and
- Range of Motion/Pain Level (if any).
In roughly 5—10 minutes anyone can finish a J-Score Quick Screen to provide an initial joint injury risk evaluation that does not require sharing private health information.
In contrast, the more comprehensive J-Score Full Assessment takes ~15—20 minutes to complete, but can provide healthcare providers with sufficient information to make a diagnosis and recommend a treatment plan (if warranted).
So if you’re concerned about your overall Wellness, we invite you to take a few minutes and learn more about your specific musculoskeletal health by getting your FREE, personal J-Score right away!
