Sprains Sprains can be a painful injury that can affect the ligament by being over stretched or torn. Ligaments connect your bones together. The ankle, knee, and wrist are the most common injury. The way a person gets a sprain is by the ligament getting stretched too far from their normal position. The purpose of having them is to keep your skeleton in its normal alignment.
MRSA skin infections may develop pus or weep other fluids. If left untreated, a MRSA skin infection can go progressively deeper into the body, infecting blood and organs.

MRSA skin infections may develop pus or weep other fluids. If left untreated, a MRSA skin infection can go progressively deeper into the body, infecting blood and organs.
STAGE 3 The sore worsens and extends beneath the skin surface, forming a small crater. There may be no pain at this stage due to nerve damage. The risk of tissue death and infection are high. STAGE 4 Pressure sores progress, with extensive damage to deeper tissues (muscles, tendons and bones). Serious complications, such as osteomyelitis (infection of the bone) or sepsis (infection carried through the blood) can occur.
MG causes chewing and swallowing to be difficult, also the nasal bone because aspiration can happen in more severe cases. The Appendicular skeletal area is also affected because the arms and legs are involved because of the muscle weakness. All in all, one can say any part of the skeletal system can be
Without care, pressure ulcers can be very serious. They can damage not just the skin, but also deeper layers of tissue under the skin. We can prevent pressure sores by, * Regularly changing a person’s postion * Using equipment, ie pressure cushions and mattresses. Different grades of pressure sores. Grade 1 * Reddened or darkened skin that will not turn white when firmly pressed Grade 2 * Partial skin loss or damage,
In vivo, tendons support large mechanical loads and because of this, they are frequently injured. Examples of commonly injured tendons are: the rotator cuff, finger flexor tendons, patellar tendons and Achilles tendons. Tendon ruptures are injuries that occur due to accidental laceration or under extreme instantaneous loads. For example, the Achilles tendon can be ruptured in sport under actions requiring explosive acceleration, such as pushing off or jumping. Slow spontaneous healing does occur in the body however this often causes scar tissue formation or disorganised matrix made largely of dense collagen fibres, resulting in the repaired area having poorer mechanical properties than healthy and intact tendons.
The infection on the skin usually first develops a painful bump or mark in the skin like an insect bite (Davis, 2012). The bacteria often enter into the skin through opening in the skin, which can develop into a painful pus-filled swelling or boil. Infected people can also have additional symptoms such as high temperatures and the general feeling of being unwell. MRSA infections can also have abscess where it causes larger, pus-filled lumps to develop underneath the skin. More extensive skin infection such as cellulitis, a bacterial infection of the deeper layers of skin and the layer of fat and soft tissues under the skin can also be contracted.
If the pressure continues, the skin will continue to be damaged and will die, causing an ulcer or sore to develop. The resulting damage first appears on the skin surface as a red or dark patch. As the pressure sore progresses, the skin will break down to form an open sore or blisters, dead skin and ultimately infect underlying tissues, bones and joints. This type of skin damage can develop quickly in anyone with reduced mobility, such as an older people or someone confined to a bed or chair due to illness or injury, can get pressure ulcers. For those with impaired mobility or sensation, pressure sores are a major cause of hosiptalization.
In the case of osteoarthritis within the patients knee the cartilage that acts as padding between the bones wares away over time causing the bones to rub together this can be very painful. In the worse case causing the knee to lock or even give way leading to a fall. Unlike osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis is caused by an autoimmune inflammatory disease, which causes swelling in multiple joints. While surgery is always an option to relive the pain involved in knee issues there are a few less invasive things the patient can do to relieve their pain. These treatments include maintaining a healthy diet and maintain the proper weight for your height.
In these quadrants your heart, lungs and kidneys are the main organs that’s are affected and will have the most damage. This disease will also cause joint damage which can cause serve arthritis, swelling in your metatarsals, tibia, fibula, calcaneus, phalanges, carpals, your radius and your ulna. With all the swelling in your joints, hands, and feet causes a lot of pain and burning sensations (Robinson,
