1.2 Impact of specific conditions on correct movement and positioning There are a number of conditions that can have an impact on the correct movement and positioning of people. Arthritis People suffering with arthritis will often have stiff painful 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. Parkinson’s disease Sufferers of Parkinson’s disease may experience limb rigidity that can affect normal movement and positioning.
When mobility he is reduced muscles become weaker and floppy making movement harder and slower but when muscles are in frequent use they remain stronger and more flexible movement easier. When we are supporting an activity that involves moving and positioning it is important to understand that an over extension of a movement extending the joints can cause damage and a lot of pain as muscles can only move at a joint up as far as the joint allows. Nerves run throughout our bodies sending messages to the muscles which enable them to contract or relax, these nerve fibres can be easily damaged when poor moving and handling techniques are practiced. 1.2 Describe the impact of specific conditions on the correct movement and positioning of an individual. A.
HSC 2028 MOVE AND POSITION INDIVIDUALS IN ACCORDANCE WITH PLAN OF CARE 1.1 Outline the anatomy and physiology of the human body in relation to the importance of correct moving and positioning of individuals The anatomy which the physical structure of the body and physiology which is the normal functions of the body help individuals to move their limbs. Muscles have the power of contraction thus it produce movement of the body and allow the bones to work like hinges. When moving someone/individual it is important to remember that the muscles can only move the joint as far as the bones will allow them. 1.2 Describe the impact of specific conditions on the correct movement and positioning of an individual If an individual has suffered from a stroke this may cause loss of movement in the limbs on one side of the body (hemiplegic). In that case it is very important to remember that when you are assisting an individual with regards to dressing you need to dress the individual firstly the bad side and when undressing him/her you do the bad side lastly to prevent discomfort.
Unit 4222-232 Move and position individuals in accordance with their plan of care (HSC 2028) Outcome 1 Understand anatomy and physiology in relation to moving and positioning individuals 1. outline the anatomy and physiology of the human body in relation to the importance of correct moving and positioning of individuals Having an understanding of basic anatomy and physiology can help reduce the risk of harm to yourself or others when undertaking moving and handling procedures. Muscles work like levers and allow the bones at a joint to work like hinges. Muscles pull and move the bones at particular joints; this makes the joint move and therefore the body moves. When a muscle contracts, it pulls the bones at a joint in the direction
First, stretching after the workout or game helps muscles and tendons which are tighten to loosen. This helps a lot to the body because it will help definitely the body from having cramps, muscle pulling, and letting the muscles to become stiff. Stretching is also really important especially to people who are trying to lose weight because the wastes, such as lactic acid may stay in the body after working out. It builds up in the muscles which don’t help the body to look fit. All these benefits can’t
When assisting someone with moving or positioning it is important to remember the muscles can only move the joints as far as the bone will allow them to. 2. Describe the impact of specific conditions on the correct movement and positioning of an individual. When assisting an individual you have to take into account if the individual has any conditions that might require certain moving techniques. For example people who suffer from Parkinson’s could have rigidity of their limbs which can affect their movement.
Move and Position Individuals in Accordance withtheir Plan of Care: 1.1 When moving and position an individual it is important to make sure that yu do not move them more then the body is capable of, as muscles can only move bone at the joint allows.Sudden movements and pulling can cause pulled muscles or tear tendons which can cause a lot of pain.Putting pressure on individual hand or body when moving from one position to another can cause fracture of the bone. 1.2 Specific conditions could be arthritis , stiff, painful joints and frequently have limited movements in the affected areas.Stroke ,paralysis or weakness which affects one side of their body. 2.1 Every time a care worker moves or position the individual they are manually handling
The individual and carers will not experience pains and discomfort. | 1.2 Describe the impact of specific conditions on the correct movement and positioning of an individual (Planned: 0 , Completed:0) Before moving an individual you must always consider if they have any specific condition that will acquire different moving and handling techniques. For example if an individual has suffered from a stroke they may have paralyses down one side of there body which will mean there muscles and limbs will be tight. The individual may need assistance to move parts of there body that are paralysed. Great care and training will be required for this.
Accepting the gradual loss of independence can be difficult. Being well informed about the disease can reduce anxiety about what lies ahead. Many support groups offer valuable information for individuals with Parkinson's disease and their families on how to cope with the disorder. Local groups can provide emotional support as well as advice on where to find experienced doctors, therapists, and related information. It is also very important to stay in close contact with health care providers to monitor the progression of the disease and to adjust therapies to maintain the highest quality of
The spinal column is also made up of individual bones called vertebrae and inbetween the bones there are joints that connect these together and ligaments connect bones to support joints and not moving an individual correctly can cause ligaments to sprain which is why individuals must never be dragged when being moved as this can cause joints to over stretch and then sprain the ligaments. It is also important to move and handle correctly to ensure nerve fibres are not damaged as they are delicate, but also important as they send impulses in the body which enable muscles to relax and contract and nerve fibres can be permanently damaged by leaving a person lying for too long with a limb pinned under them. When you are healthy pins and needles are the nerves' way of alerting you to the fact that you are sleeping in an awkward position, however, if you have had a stroke, you cannot feel that you are sleeping awkwardly and are relying on your carers to ensure you are lying comfortably and safely. When moving and positioning individuals, it is important to ensure the individual is not moved more than their body is capable of, as muscles can only move bones at the joint as far as the joint allows. muscles work by the fibres they contain contracting which
