What is it like to have ALS or a CTE? Either a progressive neurological disease that attacks your motor skills or one that attacks the cognitive parts of the brain. Each one has its own particular attack strategy. On one hand the body is rendered completely motionless while being completely conscious of the outside environment. On the other, the body stays unharmed while it slowly loses the mind, both are equally devastating.
The other problem we will analyse is phantom limb pain syndrome, which is a pain that can be detected in the area where amputation occurred (as in the case of our patient), and there are some factors that are dangerous such as pain after surgery and amputation and, of course, the bad psychology that our patient may have (Flor, 2002). Phantom limb pain is a phenomenon of mutilation caused by this process and in these cases, can occur in many patients. Some possible ways that can cause phantom limb pain in a patient may be the various nerves that exist in sensitive parts of our body and cause the patient to experience some pain (Ehde, 2000). To improve the phantom limb pain, we can do some action, such as reducing pain. Various ways of treatment
Throughout the years researchers have noted numerous objections of an odd type of torment called phantom limb pain. This torment is abnormal in light of the fact that it is situated in a member that no more exists. By large portions of the amputees the agony is depicted as absolutely unendurable. For the amputee populace this is a manifestly obvious issue that unquestionably should be illuminated. Torment and other sensation in a removed or truant appendage, are understood marvels.
The neural tubes are supposed to be closed; in spina bifida this process does not happen, and damage results to the nerves and spinal cord. The severity of this damage can range from mild to severe, depending upon where the opening in the spine is and its' size, and if the spinal cord and the nerves are involved at all. Spina bifida occurs in two forms, spina bifida occulta and spina bifida cystica. The cystica class is further subdivided into myelomeningocele and meningocele. When spina bifida is mentioned in conversation, most of
This article is about Athletic pubalgia or sports hernia that mainly occurs in athletes; nevertheless it can affect non-athletes as well. Sports hernia is a syndrome of chronic lower abdomen and groin pain. It is defined as weakness or tearing of the rectus abdominus insertion to the superior pubic ramus. Additionally this article mentions the over the years, this injury has had different names athletic pubalgia, sports hernia, Gilmore’s groin, pubic inguinal pain syndrome and numerous more. Similarly, those names attempt to describe a certain yet misunderstood condition that is not well accepted by general surgeons as real condition which needs surgical intervention.
There are also different parts of the brain that controls the little mirror neurons. There is the superior temporal sulcus, the premotor cortex, and the parietal lobule. A very interesting phenomenon is the phantom limb phenomenon. It is when someone with an amputated limb still has the sensations of the arm there. Empathy and Imitation Have you ever thought about why we can empathize with other people?
A lobotomy consists of either drilling into a patient's brain or using ice pick like instruments to stab at the brain through the patient's eye socket, these procedures had a variety of results ranging from successful to the death of the patient. Often times those who received these procedures never felt the same and would be classified as acting differently. While this procedure was meant for patient whom were classified as unruly, this was not always the case, in some instances, those who were classified as relatively normal or were at the very least not a problematic patient would still receive the procedure for one reason or another. for some institutions, the patients would be served plain bread, water or milk, and nothing else for breakfast. The average dinner would be a bowl of pea soup, often times the patients would be in restraints.
Bradykinesia, a disease that could ruin your life. This disease causes a person to gain, slow movements, and even freeze up sometimes (Medical.net). Bradykinesia causes a person to lose dopamine in parts of their brain. When you lose dopamine in the brain it causes you to slowly gain the symptoms of this disease (HealthLine). Even though there are many setbacks to having bradykinesia, it can be helped slow down and stop some of the symptoms.
Breakey (1997) stated that after amputation that cause the triple loss of ability, perception and physical performance, is not only just a misplacement of a physical limb. Individual who undergo lower limb amputation would need a walking aid, such as a walking stick, a crutch, a wheelchair or a prosthesis to mobilize (Breakey, 1997). Fortunately, there are a few cases that some of the amputees still remain their independence in their daily routine by utilizing their prosthesis, even though massive of obstacles faced by them following low limb amputation (Mac Neill, Pauley, Yudin, 2008). Amputees’ participation in their social activity has a significant change from before as they suffer from the difficulty to walk independently post amputation. Because of this obstacle, people with lower limb amputation often suffer from mentally side effect, for examples, stress, anxiety and depression (Breakey, 1997).
Concussions are considered functional, because it only affects the biochemical process of the brain, but the trauma changes the brain function temporarily. Although, in sports like football, repeated head to head contact can lead to long term brain damage. Many former football player’s have suffered from long term head injuries, this lead to things such as, “ long-term health consequences of concussion, including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Alzheimer 's disease, and other forms of dementia, Parkinson 's disease, or severe cognitive impairment.” according to Weil(2016). When suffering from a concussion, you must deal with many symptoms such as, brief loss of consciousness after the injury, memory problems, drowsiness or feeling sluggish, confusion, dizziness, double vision or blurred vision, nausea, headache,or vomiting, sensitivity to light or noise, balance problems, and slowed reaction to stimuli. It can also effect the student- athletes behavior, thinking, or physical
