WSIB aims to provide evidence-based treatment, the MSK POC, intended for muscle and joint injuries, other than those injuries to the low back or shoulder. Both the physiotherapist and chiropractors are certified to deliver this program of care at our Mississauga clinics.
The MSK POC described the best standard of treatment to deliver effective in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries. The emphases is task-specific and worker-specific rehabilitation. Our goal is to make staying at work or returning to work an integral component of rehabilitation.
Our Mississauga clinic is focused on functional assessment and functional restoration. We us the the Patient-Specific Functional Scale (PSFS) is the outcome measure the outcome for the MSK POC. It will be used at the initial assessment and again at discharge from the program.
The PSFS will help identify the work tasks that you might be having difficulty with because of the injury and will assess change in functional ability and help focus the treatment on specific functional tasks.
Modified work or graded exposure to work-related activities is an effective way to help workers regain their functional abilities. Return to work is an important part of successful rehabilitation.
