PRODUCT LIABILITY ON GENERAL MOTORS Product liability is defined as a law in which the manufacturer or seller of a product can be held responsible for providing the customer with defective products that causes injury or undesirable side effects to the consumer. The manufacturer is responsible for the causes of defect or danger caused by the products they sell, hence the product must meet the ordinary expectations of the consumer. There are three types of product liability claims: 1. Manufacturing defect: this type of claim is due to defect in manufacturing process or some error with the workmanship.
DOI: 5/23/2016. Patient is a 48-year-old male sales employee who sustained injury due to a car accident. Per OMNI, he was initially diagnosed with cervical and left shoulder sprain/strain. Based on the latest medical report dated 07/15/16, the patient notes his neck pain radiating to his left upper extremity is now described as 5/10 in intensity and notes the associated tingling on his left arm is now worse.
After a long day, a massage can help you relax and unwind. Your body will appreciate this effective form of stress management. Learn about the physical benefits of this alternative therapy. Muscle Pain Reduction Muscle pain can be debilitating for many people.
The doctor will evaluate the areas of the body that are affected or injured and discuss what triggers the pain. When he has conducted a thorough physical examination and taken x-rays to determine any misalignments in the neck and back, the doctor will evaluate all of the information that has been
For example, if a player were to dislocate an elbow like Malcolm Mitchell recently did in early 2016, that often requires complex dislocation surgery to put the joint back in place, and to repair damage to the blood vessels and nerves in the joint during the
This belief is what makes the team at Crises Rahbilitation Center of Atlanta one of the leading Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) specialists in the country. "Injuries are not only a physical question, which is the most important thing, of course, but also a question of your mind. If you're thinking: 'I'm not going to make it', 'I can't cope', 'it hurts', 'it's never going to get better', then it won't." Luis Suarez You have enough stress in your life without having to worry about the quality of care you are receving.
2011). Healthcare expenditure for TSCI patients reflects the severity of the condition and the multidisciplinary approach to treatment and rehabilitation which is required. A striking difference is observed in the cost of managing TSCIs depending on the severity of injury. A Canadian study concluded that expenditure attributable to complete TSCIs averaged just short of 3 times the cost of managing incomplete TSCIs during the first year following diagnosis (Dryden et al. 2005). Follow-up care during the ensuing 5 years averaged just above 50% for complete TSCIs in comparison to incomplete TSCIs (Dryden et al. 2005).
CHAPTER ONE: BACKGROUND AND LITERATURE REVIEW 1.1 Background Carpal tunnel syndrome is the entrapment of median nerve at the wrist. The median nerve originates from the brachial plexus at level of C5 to T1. It passes down through the midline of the arm in front of the elbow joint supplying muscles of the forearm continuing to the hand supplying the front of the thumb, the two first fingers and the lateral half of the third finger (Elsevier 2001). The symptoms in carpal tunnel syndrome include numbness, tingling, burning sensation, loss of grip strength and pain.
Martin Henry Fischer, an American physician once said, “Diagnosis is not the end, but the beginning of practice.” Back then diagnoses weren’t as accurate as they are now. Diagnoses have improved throughout the years because of the innovative technology used by doctors and nurses. Research has shown technological advances in sports medicine therapy have assisted medical professionals in developing a more accurate diagnosis - contact sports often result in a high degree of injuries - More focused treatment plans, and created devices that are used in treatment that provide patients with improved results. Physical therapy, also known as physiotherapy, is the treatment method for diseases, injuries, and deformities.
In the past, pain was viewed primarily as a sensory experience produced by a nociceptive or neural response associated with tissue injury. To this effect, pain assessment does not need any formal training (Gregory 2000). Later it was discovered that pain also affects every other aspect of individual experiencing it, as well as the family and even the community as it is viewed to be pervasive and poorly treated in hospital setting (Smeltzer and Bare 2004). In USA, three quarter of surgical patients report inadequate relief of acute pain, four in ten people with moderate to severe chronic pain have inadequate relief, more than twenty six million people age 20 – 64 years live with frequent or persistent back pain, one in six suffers from arthritic pain, only 30% of
7. Some people feel tired and ill-tempered for a few days and have trouble concentrating. Diagnosis Usually the doctor will ask you some questions about your injury, such as where you are feeling pain, how it occurred, and if the pain is mild, shooting, or severe.
Further research on alternative methods for pain reduction and management techniques may be able to give some much-needed relief to a mass of individuals, not just a handful of patients (Bresler, 2012). Pain can not only harm individuals with the injury, it can cause harm to everyone around them (Bresler, 2012). No one wants to see their loved ones suffer. Also, patients themselves may damage their own personal relationships because of the extremity of pain and how it can isolate an individual (Bresler,
Pain experiences can be initiated by the expectancy of pain or suffering rather than just noxious stimuli alone, thus indicating many dimensions. (Loeser and Melzack 1999). Shaikh et al. (2010) cited somatic pain as located in the skin, joints and bones whereas visceral pain occurs in body organs. Acute pain is caused by injury to body tissue and subsequent nociceptive transduction, while chronic pain is relentless and tends to continue after the conclusion of treatment, this could be due to the injury being greater than the body’s healing power or damage to the nervous system (Loeser and Melzack
