A greater awareness regarding the disparities in musculoskeletal conditions and their management is needed. Further research into the reasons for differences in incidence of certain conditions will allow for better and possible earlier intervention. Moreover, enhanced understanding and defining the causes of racial disparities in the management of musculoskeletal diseases will allow improved and more equitable care in an increasingly diverse population.
