Rehabilitation of Patients - CIHI Report

From experience gained from assisting injured workers, the results here seem to be at odds to the reality of all those debilitating injuries of workers. There are many workers waiting months or years to go through the hoops to achieve the results that this report expounds.

If one only examines those cases which have sustained a traumatic injury that immediately requires hospitalization the statistics may hold true. Those of the walking wounded that would often recover more fully, with much reduced pain and pain-killers, and reduced loss of muscle mass clearly have been ignored in compiling this report.
