Samantha Pothier Lateral Ankle Sprains An inversion ankle sprain is when the ankle is turned inwards and there is an injury to a ligament either tearing or stretching. Inversion Ankle sprains are the most common and usually happen when the ankle is forced into plantar flexion and also forced inward. An ankle sprain can be just a stretch of the muscle or tendon, and it also can partially or completely tear. (2. Ferrel) There are different degrees of ankle sprains.
A sprain is an injury that involves the tearing or stretching of a ligament or a joint capsule. Sprains happen when a joint is forced past its regular range of motion. I believe Jill sprained her ankle because there was severe ankle pain, swelling, bruising and Jill could not walk after the second incident. A strain is an injury that involves the tearing or stretching of a muscle and or tendon structure. An acute strain of the muscle or tendon structure happens at the connection where the muscle is becoming a tendon.
Running head: FINAL PAPER Final Paper: Anterior Cruciate Ligament Alexis C. Howard SPHE419 American Public University January 27, 2013 Thesis Statement Approximately 80,000 cruciate ligament injuries occur in the United States every year. The majority of the injuries accounted for involve the Anterior Cruciate Ligament also referred to as ACL. This knee injury is mostly common among athletes who participate in sports requiring sprinting, jumping, and swift sudden changes in direction. Studies suggest that women are more prone to ACL tears. This writer will present research on the common mechanisms of injury, the sports they are most common in, the recovery and rehabilitation involved, as well the incidence rates of injury.
Introduction Patella fractures are common injuries of knee joint after certain degree of direct trauma. It accounts about 0.5% - 1.5% in all kind of bone fractures (1). The disruption of the extensor mechanism in knee restricts the range of moment of the joint. However, worldwide orthopedic surgeons still face a significant challenge in fixation methods (2). Open reduction and internal fixation is the golden surgical technique for transverse patella fractures.
The hamstrings are tendons that attach three large muscles at the back of the thigh to the bone. Also known as the posterior thigh muscles\ are made up of three large muscles, the Semitendinosus, Semimembranosus, and Bicep Femoris. The Semitedinosus begins at the Ischial Tuberosity and is inserted at the medial surface of the Tibia (-------------). The Semimembranosus origin is located on the Ischial Tuberosity and is inserted on the medial tibial condyle. As for the Bicep Femoris, there are two sections to this muscle.
But whether single or multiple, their similar morphology. This tumor occurs in the metaphysis of long bone, especially in distal femur, proximal tibia is most prevalent, followed by the proximal humerus, and foot bones were very few at. Tumor size ranging in diameter is generally 3 ~ 4cm, large by up to 10cm or more. Tumor type and can be divided into broad-based pedicle two kinds, bulge outward from the bone surface, the surface was hemispherical, cauliflower-like or polypoid. Osteochondroma of the structure is more special, and can be divided into three layers.
jaw, knee and elbow), gliding (e.g. wrist and ankle), and pivot (e.g. between the vertebrae in the neck) Bones: - Moving and positioning an individual in an incorrect manner can cause bone fractures (breaks). There are also several different types of fracture, which vary in cause and severity: - A “simple” fracture is the most common of these and is when the bone breaks cleanly. This may be caused by even small amounts of pressure when assisting someone or even when standing for a short while to transfer.
It’s a weight-bearing joint that straightens bends, twist and rotates. All this motion increases risk of acute or overuse knee injuries. Acute knee injuries including torn ligaments and torn cartilage are often caused by twisting the knee or falling. Sports that involve running
The knee is the largest synovial joint (the most common and moveable type of joint) in the human body. It allows extension and flexion as well as slight medial and lateral rotation when the knee is flexed. The knee is also the most injured joint in the body as it is responsible for most of the weight bearing of the body. When we walk, our knees support 1.5 times our body weight; climbing stairs is about 3-4 times our body weight and squatting about 8 times. The knee is also responsible for providing flexibility that allows movement like walking, running, and climbing.
The most common golf injuries that can happen to golf players are hand and finger injury, wrist injury, and tendonitis in the elbows. The first common kind of golf injury is hand and finger injury. According to the article 10 common golf injuries by Palacios-Jansen and Karen, it says that “the repetitive motions of golf, and the high speed of the typical golf swing can place the hands and fingers at high risk for injury” (p.27). The symptoms of hand and finger injury are blunt trauma, single severe trauma to the hands and fingers. Moreover, repetition of these injuries could lead to many worse conditions, like tendonitis and broken or deformed bones.
