What’s a J-Score™? And why do you need one today?
With over 350 joints in the human body, it’s not surprising that Americans spend over $1 trillion* in musculoskeletal health (MSH) costs each year.
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 Musculoskeletal Health 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 quickly help an individual identify his/her 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), and then
correlated against and compared with the entire database to produce the final J-Score™ predictions.
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 your healthcare providers with sufficient information to make a diagnosis and recommend a treatment plan if warranted.
So take a few minutes and learn more about your specific musculoskeletal health by getting your FREE, personal J-Score™
