It was understood that kyphosis was studied in addition to the other deformities in the papers related to the etiology of kyphosis with some exceptional cases. Definition Kyphosis is a forward rounding of the back. Some rounding is normal, but the term "kyphosis" usually refers to an exaggerated rounding of the back. While kyphosis can occur at any age, it's most common in older women. Age-related kyphosis often occurs after osteoporosis weakens spinal
Osteoarthritis is diagnosed based on the symptoms and x-rays of the elbow joints (which shows the arthritic changes). Symptoms can typically show in people older than 50 but it can occur to people of earlier ages. Osteoarthritis is found in men more than women if they had never had a previous elbow
“(SIS) occurs when a person with a concussion, even a very mild one, suffers a second blow before fully recovering from the first. The brain swelling and increased intracranial pressure that can result is potentially fatal” (Davidson, Atkins, and Longe). 95% of repeat concussions occur within 10 days of the first, and 75% within 1 week (“Head Injuries”). Because the vessels in the brain take about 15 days to heal, the player is at higher risk for another concussion or the vessels bursting. A burst vessel can result in death.
Closed-head injuries are caused mostly by car accidents, falls, acts of violence, and sports injuries. Closed-head injuries can be from mild injuries to traumatic brain injuries and can lead to severe brain damage or death. If symptoms of a head injury are seen after an accident, medical care is needed to diagnose and treat the injury. Without medical attention, injuries can progress and cause further brain damage, disability, or death.
Isaiah soon later gets a concussion caused by a simple blow to the head. The healing process took months for Isaiah’s brain to heal. According to Riley’s article, the risk of of death from neurodegenerative disease was low and that “data suggests that the normal life of adolescents puts them at risk for brain injury all the time.” (Riley 1). He also states that if his son were to join any other sports such as soccer, rock climbing, skiing or lacrosse have similar risks such as high school football. Although there are sports that have similar risk factors to high school football, according to Shotz’s article, “There are more concussions in football than in any other sport.
Physical sports can sometimes be quite dangerous. Especially concussions, Concussion is a temporary loss of brain function typically resulting from a relatively mild injury to the brain, not necessarily associated with unconsciousness. The problem of concussions is it happens to often. I say physical sports make rules protecting you from concussion. This is important because Concussions can sometimes result in long-term injuries.
In an article by Alzheimer’s Association it mentions that many experts who study this type like to call it “Vascular Cognitive Impairment” because it better explains the idea that your vascular thinking skills can change and it can either be small or serve. Also, in this article it mentions that Vascular Dementia is account for 10 percent of cases and that is remains underdiagnosed even though it is considered common. B. Symptoms i. With this type of Dementia, the symptoms can be very different due to how badly the blood vessel are damaged after having the stroke.
A large-scale study found that concussions in adolescents can increase the risk of developing multiple sclerosis later on in life. There are hints that head trauma may also be linked to the development of many other conditions, including multiple sclerosis. Health professionals are not entirely sure whether or not concussions are linked to these diseases or not. Past studies in animals have shown that trauma to the central nervous system, including the brain, may jump-start the kind of autoimmune reactions that are underlined with multiple sclerosis. Other risk of concussions are chronic headaches, amnesia and neurological disorders like Alzheimer 's disease or Parkinson 's syndrome.
Fractures to the radial head and neck, olecranon and distal humeral condyles/epicondyles have been approximated to occur between 5% and 15% of all elbow dislocations (Middleton, 2012). Fractures like these change the type of dislocation from simple to complex. Therefore a complex dislocation may involve both ligament and bone injuries. A severe dislocation can be catastrophic; there is a high chance that the many nerves and blood vessels that travel in and around the elbow joint may be injured, therefore there is a risk of losing the arm(O’Driscoll, 2009). Dislocation of the elbow is uncommon; usually occurring when someone falls onto an extended hand.
If the headache is present, over the counter medication it is usually sufficient to eliminate pain. When a more severe or extensive brain damage occurs, the injury is considered a head injury or severe brain. Lesions in the brain can have a variety of causes, such as trauma to the head from a fall, accident and assault. Symptoms vary and may include an altered level of consciousness, nausea and vomiting. Seizures may also occur.
