Health State Descriptions for Canadians: Musculoskeletal Diseases - ARCHIVED

Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 82-619-M2006003


This document examines the functional limitations, physical, emotional and social, related to the musculoskeletal conditions having the largest impact on the health of Canadians. These functional limitations are described and classified using the Classification and Measurement System of Functional Health (CLAMES).

These descriptions and classifications are the first step in a new approach to measuring the health of Canadians that examines what factors are adversely affecting population health and how to address them. This document also provides health professionals, advocacy groups, and individual Canadians with an overview of how living with certain musculoskeletal conditions affects day-to-day functioning.
