How can my bones and muscles be impacted by my genetics?

Musculoskeletal disorders (bones and connective tissue) affect more than 11 million adults in Canada every year, making it a leading cause of missed work in developed countries. These disorders also lead to economic burdens in an order of 10s of billions of dollars requiring disability pay, physician consultation, missed social interactions, mental health depreciation, and cardiovascular conditions. (Canadian Orthopaedic Care Strategy Group. (2010). Backgrounder Report: Building a Collective Policy Agenda for Musculoskeletal Health and Mobility.) Genetic testing can ease the burdens put on the individual, healthcare, and national economic systems by improving preventative, treatment, and monitoring care. Current Osteoporosis Reports volume 17, pages 86–95 (2019).
