Framing The Musculoskeletal Picture
Bones and Joints For the approximate 13 percent of Canadians suffering musculoskeletal conditions, common actions, from picking up grandchildren to playing tag on the school ground, are often painstaking, if not impossible, to undertake.
Experts recognize the first step to effective treatment begins with dispelling the misconceptions clouding musculoskeletal health. Bone health illness does not exclude — 24,000 Canadian youth are currently diagnosed with arthritic conditions alone. Another common misunderstanding is that bone and joint deterioration inevitably accompanies age, but healthy lifestyle and preventative measures have many elderly Canadians thriving rather than succumbing to musculoskeletal pain.
For those already suffering, hope is in reach. New technologies are constant, and for Canadians juggling multiple ailments, assessing your medical profile and determining a customized regime with your healthcare practitioner is an effective tactic for mitigating side effects. Most importantly, Canadians should engage in healthy, active lifestyles and nourish their bodies with nutrient rich foods and supplements in order to give bones — the framework of our being — a solid and sustainable foundation.
