Ankle sprains are the most common injury to the lower foot. 80%-85% of ankle injuries are Lateral ankle sprains. (4. Ibrahim) This is because the foot can turn inwards about 45-60 degrees and so it has more laxity to be pushed further inwards. Regular ankle strengthening exercises are recommended to reduce the rick of getting an ankle sprain or reinjuring an ankle.

Reflection – Handover During my time on placement so far I have encountered the handover of patients between nurses coming on and off duty every single day. The purpose of this essay is to reflect on this event. The purpose of reflection is to promote desirable pactise though the practitioners understanding and learning about his/her lived experiences (John 1995). I have decided to use the first handover that I saw being given for this reflection. It was my first placement on a rehabilitation and palliative care ward.

Ci) The best way to help Marcus to make an informed choice is to help him find as much information as possible about his options, such as what they are and what the consequences of each option might be in the best and worst scenarios. Cii) It is important not to let Marcus be influenced by my point of view because if ever something wrong happens he can blame me for it, giving my point of view if it is requested may be acceptable but not to the extent that I will encourage
The procedure is used to help realign the kneecap to a more normal position and relieve pressure on the articular cartilage. In this procedure, the lateral retinaculum is cut and released; this allows the kneecap to return to proper tracking in the trochlear groove (Figure 10). The ligaments heal overtime, and scar tissue fills in the gap left by the surgery (25). In some cases, if a lateral release is not enough, ligament tightening procedures may be the next step for a severe patellar misalignment. 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).
Eyes and Ears And Reflexes, Cutaneous receptors, Referred pain [pic] December 5, 2008 Introduction Reflex arcs are the pathways from the muscle fiber to the spinal cord. They act as a go-between for your reflexes. The Arcs involve a receptor, an afferent nerve fiber, sometimes one or more interneuron, an efferent nerve fiber, and an effector.  Without these pathways we would have no quick “life saving” reflexes. One example would be a situation in which your nerve signals to the spinal cord to withdraw your hand from a stove eye.
I made sure dignity was maintained at all times by exposing only the part of the body I was cleaning. As patient A was less mobile, patient A couldn’t fully assist with rolling; however, with support from myself and the nurse, we could roll patient A enough to clean the back and buttocks. To enable this to happen; I put patient A’s arms across their chest and gently rolled patient A onto their side, I provided support to patient A while the nurse cleaned and put clean sheets on the bed.

In most classical homeopathy remedies they are so diluted that molecules of the healing substance are no longer present. The homeopathy doctor is different from the mainstream doctor in that he will prescribe separate forms of therapy for patients that are suffering from the same condition. This is one of the qualities that people that have used the services of a homeopathy doctor appreciate about this method of care. Every diagnosis is individualized, finding the root cause of the condition that is responsible for the illness. When a person with an ailment seeks the services of a homeopath he or she must first understand the process of diagnosing the condition takes longer.
