Joint & Bone Initiative

Community/Public Resources Regarding MSK Issues

In partnership with the Canadian MSK Rehab Research Network, Western’s Bone & Joint Institute has developed a resource database to support researchers, clinicians, patients and community members who are isolated and living with mobility challenges.

With the help of our research members and partners, we have compiled a collection of trusted resources, current research efforts and published research studies that are focused on at-home exercise programs, remote rehab or self-management of MSK disorders and their related pain or mobility restrictions. These resources will be continually updated and selected Research Alerts posted through our social media channels.

If you are interested in learning more, contributing to our resources, or getting involved in any current ongoing research, please contact:
