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.
An acute strain of the muscle or tendon structure happens at the connection where the muscle is becoming a tendon. These strains occur when a muscle is stretched or suddenly is contracted (Sutton, n.d). 3. What are the four major ligaments of the knee along with their individual function in respect to the femur? (1 point) The medial Collateral Ligament also known as the MCL is a band that runs in between the inner surfaces of the femur and the tibia.
The long head of the bicep femoris ends the hip as we begin to walk. In the initial movement, the long and short bicep Femoris both flex the knee and laterally rotates the lower leg when the knee is bent ----------------------). Everyone is vulnerable to hamstring injury since our hamstrings are crucial for everyday use. One common cause for a hamstring strain is simply muscle overload. This occurs when the individuals muscles is stretched beyond its capacity or suddenly challenged with a sudden or large load.
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.
The radiologist reported signs of osteoporosis. Describe the characteristics of an osteoporotic femur as seen on an X-ray. (How does it differ in appearance from a normal femur?) Osteoporosis is a loss of bone density. The compact and spongy bone are both affected, but not equally - there is more of a deterioration
The vertebral column forms a stable but mobile axis for the rest of the body. It is made up of • Bones • Joints • Discs • Ligaments • Muscles • Tendons • Blood vessels The bones provide strength and are honeycombed for lightness, and ligaments , tendons and muscles provide stability. The muscles are also a source of power and provide movement and support for the spinal column, maintaining the natural curves and controlling excessive bending. Muscles are the first line in defense in protecting other structures of the back. Joints are where two or more bones meet.
A joint is the location at which two or more bones make contact. They are constructed to allow movement and provide mechanical support and weight bearing. 2. What is a synovial joint? Synovial joints are made up of bones that come together to formulate the joint, the ligaments attach bone to bone and allow for the joint movement to be stable and in the correct direction.
The Muscle Anatomy (http://anatomy.askthetrainer.com/) The Skeleton system (http://www.faqs.org/health/Body-by-Design-V2/The-Skeletal-System-Design-parts-of-the-skeletal-system.html) Nerve fibres run all the way through the body and send impulses to muscles, which enable the muscles to contract and relax. Nerve fibres are delicate structures and can easily become damaged through poor moving and handling techniques. The Nerve System (http://oldtownhypnotherapy.com/?page_id=75) 1.2 Describe the impact of specific conditions on the correct movement and positioning of an individual. There are many different specific conditions that have an impact on moving and positioning here are some of those… Arthritis - People suffering with arthritis will often have

Joints and movement - muscles bring about movement at a joint - muscles can only pull they cannot push so two muscles are needed to move a bone back and forth. - a pair of muscles like these are called antagonistic. - a muscle that contracts to cause extension of a joint is called an extensor - a flexor contracts to reverse the movement - the hip, knee and ankle joints are examples of synovial joints - the bones that move in the joint are separated by a cavity filled with synovial fluid. - the bones are held in position by ligaments that control and restrict movement. -tendons attach muscles to the bones - cartilage protects bones within joints.
