Musculoskeletal conditions, as defined by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare , are conditions of the bones, muscles, and connective tissues. In Australia, musculoskeletal conditions with the highest prevalence include various forms of arthritis, back pain, osteoporosis, and gout . For men, communication and consultation with physicians can be a barrier in identifying and treating musculoskeletal conditions as they start to appear leading to later diagnosis and worse health outcomes.
