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.
* Acute Cruciate Ligament Injury The ACL, or Acute Cruciate Ligament, is one of the most important ligaments in the body. This ligament is located at the knee. There are four thick bands of tissue, called ligaments, which stabilize the knee and keep its movement in one plane. There is the medial collateral ligament, lateral collateral ligament, posterior cruciate ligament, and the anterior cruciate ligament, which forms an X with the PCL inside the knee joint to prevent the knee from sliding back to front and vice-versa. The ACL provides stability to the knee and minimize stress across the knee joint.
Wehbe 1 The ACL is a cruciate ligament that is one of four primary stabilizing ligaments in the human knee. The ACL is important for knee stability, acting as the primary restraint to anterior translation of the tibia on the femur (Cameron). This ligament also functions as a secondary restraint to forces of varus, valgus and internal/external rotation. It is located at the center of the knee, consisting of two bundles of fibers – an anterior medial and posterior lateral - which extend from the anterior medial tibia to the posterolateral femoral condyle (Griffin). These particular bundle names were given due to their location of insertion into the tibia plateau.
Explain the muscle anatomy or the hip and what function each muscle group performs. Discuss in detail how a femur fracture may be life threatening to an athlete. 31. Explain what myositis ossificans is and how it may develop. Myositis ossificans means that bone forms within muscle due to a blunt injury that causes deep tissue bleeding in an athlete.
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.
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
Alternative Treatments for Osteoarthritis Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common chronic condition of the joints, affecting over 27 million Americans ("What is osteoarthritis?" 2009). It has to do with the breakdown and wearing of cartilage, which is the hard and slippery tissue that cushions the ends of bones where they meet to form a joint. Healthy cartilage allows bones to glide over one another, absorbing energy from the shock of physical movement. In OA, the wearing of the cartilage allows bones underneath to rub together, causing pain, swelling, and loss of motion of the joint.
This is when the he stages of healing would have all ready started when the bone was firstly fractured starting with the forming of hematoma. The doctor has ordered a plain X-ray of Mr Jones’ femur and a CT scan of his abdomen 2) Outline the preparation required to transfer Mr Jones to the radiology department for these tests. Include the following aspects in your answer: a. Documentation and forms required b.
