The purpose of this essay is to describe structure and function of the tendon, present a discussion on the process of pathophysiological Tendinopathy and provide a review of known intervention used to manage or treat both acute and chronic tendinopathies.
When Lieutenant Charles Scalzo from the NYPD visited Manhattan Orthopedic Care, he quickly became one of our dearest friends. He had an appointment with Dr. Armin Tehrany due to an awfully painful condition which limited the range of motions in his left arm and shoulder.
The symptoms can vary and the symptoms can worse on some days and not really noticeable on others. If the condition is serious, the pain may not go away and it may affect you in your everyday life. For example, it may stop you from sleeping through the night and could cause difficulties when trying to carry out daily tasks like climbing
DOI: 08/29/2006. Patient is a 57-year-old male bookbinding operator/route salesman who sustained injury when he was startled by a cat while making a delivery and fell. Per OMNI, he was initially diagnosed with lumbar herniated disk. The patient is currently temporary totally disabled due to knee surgery in April 2013.
On behalf of Cpt Wu 's, Major Blount reviewed have reviewed your MRI. MRI findings are the following: 1. Degenerative tear of the glenoid labrum. 2. Full-thickness tear of the anterior portion of the supraspinatus tendon. 3. Partial thickness articular surface tear of the remaining portion of the supraspinatus tendon and infraspinatus tendon and subscapularis tendinopathy. 4. Severe osteoarthritis of the glenohumeral and acromioclavicular joint.
“OK, Team! We have a new patient in Room 3B who is being admitted with a progressive (gradual, advancing) decrease in mobility (movement) of his back and legs, and increase in pain located in the lumbosacral (lower back above the tailbone of the spine) area. The patient’s Primary Care Provider has sent along Computed Tomography scans (CT, a rotating x-ray emitter, detailed internal scanner) showing spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spine causing pressure on the nerves and spinal cord causing lower back pain.) and decrease of the normal lordosis (abnormal curvature lower spine, excessive inward curvature of the spine) in the thoracic vertebrae (upper and middle back). Lumbosacral
This injury is the stretching of ulnar nerve that runs through cubital tunnel, which is is the largest unprotected nerve on the body. The nerve can tear when the ulnar nerve is compressed. It is between the medial epicondyle and olecranon, and runs along the ulnar bone. For the muscles, the cubital tunnel is adjacent to to triceps and continues down the forearm between the flexor carpi ulnaris muscle.It can be either chronic or acute, but it typically acute. It is near the medial head of the tricep and the arcuate ligament. Also, the arcade of struthers, medial intermuscular septum, and the deep flexor aponeurosis are affected.
The plaintiff lives at 606 East 49th Street in Brooklyn with his mother, aunt and grandfather. He is currently employed by Sprint. At the time of the accident he was employed by Metro PCS, he had worked with them for 2 years prior to the accident as a customer service agent. He had health insurance but no fault paid his medical bills.
When players are out with an injury, game announcers will often say they are, “out with an ankle” or “out with a knee.” I’m pretty sure most of the players are out with two ankles and two knees; it’s just that one of them is injured and that is why they are not playing. I guess we all know they are referring to an injury, but the announcer’s job is to effectively communicate as much pertinent information as possible about the game.
Snapping scapula is a condition in which the shoulder blade (scapula) rubs against the ribs and causes a “snapping” sound or feeling. This can cause pain and affect shoulder function. In some cases, snapping scapula is painless. This condition usually goes away with proper treatment.
Shoulder burisits is a common shoulder condition caused by repetitive motions and excessive use of the shoulder, but it can also occur as a result of a sudden and serious injury or trauma to the shoulder. This shoulder injury is inflammation or irritation of the bursa, a fluid-filled sac that creates a cushion between the acromion and the head of the humerus.
The ankle is the most frequently injured major joint in the body. Ultrasonography (US) performed with high-resolution broadband linear-array probes has become increasingly important in the assessment of ligaments around the ankle because it is low cost, fast, readily available, and free of ionizing radiation. US can provide a detailed depiction of normal anatomic structures and is effective for evaluating ligament integrity. In addition, US allows the performance of dynamic maneuvers, which may contribute to increasing the visibility of normal ligaments and improved detection of tears (1).
