Musculoskeletal system is the medical term used to refer to all your bones, joints, muscles and tendons. You may have injured a bone or a muscle in your arm or leg, or you may have injured a bone in your back, hip or pelvis. All of these are musculoskeletal injuries.
A catastrophic injury
A catastrophic injury is an extremely serious injury that may result in permanent disability, or long lasting medical conditions. At least one of the body’s systems is affected in a catastrophic injury, such as the respiratory system, muscular system, or neurological system.
If your injuries are deemed catastrophic an injury case manager, or disability specialist with appropriate training and understanding, will be working with us to coordinate your care in these instances.
Our Alter G’s are located at our Mississauga and Brampton Locations!
Who makes up the Team at Focus Physiotherapy?
Focus Physiotherapy Registered Physiotherapists are professionals who deal with the rehabilitation of the musculoskeletal system, caring for broken bones, called fractures, as well as other injuries to the musculoskeletal system.
We are frequently consulted to care for patients with severe fractures or multiple injuries, but also care for basic fractures and other orthopaedic problems.
Being registered physiotherapists we focus on optimal management of your injuries through a multidisciplinary team approach. Our rehabilitation programs includes: identifying the injury, grading its severity and defining a plan to return you back to normal activity after traumatic musculoskeletal injury.
The rehabilitation plan aims at improving your mobility through strengthening exercises, co-ordination and functional training. We will provide a well planned program that will help you gain physical strength and assist in returning you to a maximum possible physical recovery. Focus Physiotherapywill also work with you to prevent reoccurrence of the pain.
The treatment plan for treating traumatic injury is coordinated by registered physiotherapists, yet we integrate other health professionals at the same time to ensure achieving optimal outcomes.
