What bones form the articulation (joint) of the ankle? Did Jill most likely sprain or strain her ankle? Explain your reasoning and the difference between the two? (1 point) The ankle articulation consists of three bones that are the tibia, fibula and the talus. A sprain is an injury that involves the tearing or stretching of a ligament or a joint capsule.

HSC 2028 Outcome 1 1. If you do not move and position individuals correctly you can harm the individual unintentionally. For example when you are moving an individual you need to know how the muscles work. Muscles act as levers in the body which allows the bones at a joint ie hip to work like a hinge. The muscles pull and move the bones of particular joints which then make the joints move and in turn the body then moves.
Individuals with Parkinson’s may have limb rigidity which can affect their ability of movement and cause limitations. When moving the individual into certain positions you must make sure not to force the rigid limbs as this can cause further pain and discomfort. Individuals who have suffered a
This is where the surgeon may also need to realign the quadriceps mechanism, when the tendons on the inside edge of the knee (the medial side) may have to be tightened as well (26). Many doctors think that the lateral release and ligament tightening procedures are overused; they urge patients to try the non surgical options before considering
When someone sprains an ankle there will be swelling, bruising and tenderness and the pain will be at the lateral part of the ankle and sometimes at the medial part. The ankle is a hinge joint and articulates from three bones, which are the talus, tibia, and fibula. (1. Heck) The ligaments support the ankles stability and when someone has recurrent ankle sprains it is likely that they could lose their normal kinematics. (6 Maughan) Muscles that cause
Unit cu2625 1.1- Mobility means the movement of individuals from a particular place or position to another whilst ensuring that their independence is maintained e.g. moving from a wheelchair to a bed or moving from one bed position to another. 1.2- Strokes, fractures and dislocations, muscle weakness or stiffness due to arthritis may make mobility more difficult. With strokes the person may not have good balance and partial paralysis on one side which can make the person more at risk of falling. A fracture of a bone may mean that it does not heal quickly or may become infected which can restrict movement of a person’s hand or leg for example which makes it difficult for moving around.
Nerve fibres are delicate structures and can easily become damaged through poor moving and handling techniques. 1.2 There are a number of conditions that can have an impact on the correct movement and positioning of people. Arthritis People suffering with arthritis often have stiff painful and sometimes swollen joints and frequently have limited movement in the affect areas. Care needs to be taken when moving or positioning arthritic people, to reduce the possibility of causing pain and discomfort. You also need to be aware of the limited movement of arthritic joints and not attempt to move these beyond their limits.
Fibromyalgia is often present when an individual has low levels of this specific neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. The body tries to cope with pain to the best of its abilities, however the pain threshold is lowered considerably and pain seems to be intensified. This condition is also strongly associated with Raynaud syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, mood and anxiety disorders, and regional pain syndromes. (Huether, 2012). With a combination of preexisting factors such as imbalances in hormones and neurotransmitters, and also any trauma or pain inducing syndromes fibromyalgia is a risk for any
