Data for specific musculoskeletal conditions has been analyzed through the 2009 to 2011 time period, and is shown in 2011 dollars. Total per person medical care expenditures rose for each of the major subconditions between 1996-1998 and 2009-2011. Osteoporosis, which rose from $8,572 to $10,978 per person had the lowest increase at 28%. Costs for injuries rose by 75%, from $4,053 to $7,104 per person, and was the largest relative due to increase. (Reference Table 10.4 PDF CSV and Table 10.7 PDF CSV)

Incremental costs for arthritis and joint pain rose by 192% between 1996 and 2011, nearly four times the rate of increase for spine, injuries, and other musculoskeletal diseases. Incremental costs were not calculated for osteoporosis due to insufficient sample size.  (Reference Table 10.5 PDF CSV)
