“A functional impairment of the body’s musculoskeletal system through injury”
4.27 million Canadians, or 15% of the population aged 12 and over experienced an injury severe enough to limit their usual activities in 2009-2010.
That’s a huge chunk of people who aren’t able to move and function as they normally would. The unfortunate reality is, more and more people are injuring themselves, just through our day-to-day activities. This is a major problem, because as we get older, our bodies become more prone to injury, and these injuries will inevitably affect our lifestyles and our overall quality of life. However, we can do things to offset this aging process through specific rehabilitative movement.
Orthopedic Injuries – What Are They?
These are the most common form of injury, spanning from a sprained ankle, shoulder dislocation, back pain, or a lack of cartilage in the knee as examples. Orthopedic injuries do not have to be severe in nature, but left unattended for prolonged periods of time, these injuries can worsen, affect other parts of the body, and therefore be of greater concern.
