Rotator cuff injuries are pretty popular and happen to a lot of people. Basically, the two most common types of injury for the rotator cuffs are tears and impingements. Impingements on the shoulder occurs when the soft tissues of your rotator cuff become inflamed and swollen. When this happens, there will be an expansion in size and this will make movement of the shoulders a little bit difficult. This will cause pinching between the shoulder blade and the arm bone when you try to move your shoulders.
The posterior lip of the tibia usually fractured, the fragment may be large or small. Also included is an avulsion of the medial malleolus or rupture of the deltoid ligament the Weber type C is characterized by a fibular fracture that is entirely above the level of the tibial plafond. A large or small posterior lip fracture often accompanies this injury, as does medial malleolar avulsion or deltoid ligament ruptured. (19) The Lauge Hansen classification was developed to describe cadaver fracture patterns. The first part of the terminology refers to the foot position when the forces start, and the second refers to the major force that is transmitted to the foot.
A sprain is a term which depicts damage to ligaments when the specific provided range or limit of motion is exceeded. A ligament sprain represents many imperceptable tears in the ligament that compromises a full tear. Many people get these two injuries confused for one
Since the retrodiscal tissue, which is richly innervated, has been stretched progressively due to the anterior disc displacement, an increasing deep stretch pain can be felt in the affected (67,94,96). It has been shown that people who had joint sounds, but do not have pain or dysfunction never progress to more severe impairments joint (9,67,93). A positive history of joint clicking, popping, snapping, palpation of a reciprocal clicks in 1 of 3 trials, and maximum assisted opening of 40 mm or greater are indicative of DDwR (9,83) (Insert
While a muscle strain doesn’t sound like a serious injury, the resulting lower back pain can be surprisingly severe and is the cause of many emergency room visits each year. There are two common types of lower back strain: A muscle strain happens when the muscle is over-stretched or torn, resulting in damage to the muscle fibers (also called a pulled muscle).
In Human Anatomy, Hyoid is a U-shaped bone present in the ventral aspect of neck at the level of fourth cervical vertebra. It is a small bone placed between the root of tongue and the thyroid cartilage. Hyoid bone represents a link be- tween the head and neck. Although located in the neck, hyoid bone be- cause of its brachial origin belongs to the visceral skeleton(1). This bone is over stilohyoid ligament (ligamentum stylohyoideum) stilohyoid muscle (mus- culus stylohyoideus) and last digastric abdominal muscle (posterior venter musculi digastrici) related to the base of the skull, through geniohyoid muscle (musculus geniohyoideus) milohyoid mus- cle (musculus mylohyoideus) and anterior digas- tric muscle belly (venter anterior musculi digastrici)
This is due to two key factors; use of ice and too much rest which forces your sprained ankle to try and heal itself. In fact, the Sprained ankle treatment through RICE is flawed. But why? The answer is simple, RICE does not allow flow of blood to the ankle, thus preventing macrophages, powerful immune cells (the good guys) from reaching the affected Sprained ankle and gobbling up the bad guys (swollen tissue and debris) as well as helping regeneration of new, healthy tissue on the affected
Anatomical Structure In Figure 1.1 shown below you can see the Anatomical Structure of the foot and the different bones that make up the Toes, or Phalanges as they are also known. As you can see from the image below, the metatarsals are connected to the Ankle bones via the Tarsometatarsal Joint. It is the Metatarsals however that the Phalanges attach to. The Proximal Phalanges are attached to the Metatarsals via the Metatarsophalangeal Joints which are the joints found at the base of the toes.
Introduction The knee joint is most commonly involved in many sports injuries and as modern sport is being more and more competitive, more complex knee injury patterns are being recognized. Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a very commonly involved ligament in these injuries.8 The knee joint is a large compound type of synovial joint. Due to the lack of bony support, stability of the joint is highly dependent on its supporting ligamentous structures, and therefore injuries of ligaments and menisci are extremely common especially in active individuals like athletes, labours and soldiers. Anterior cruciate ligament is an intra-articular, extra synovial structure present in the central complex of knee joint.
Task 8.1b- disorders and dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system Osteoarthritis Osteoarthritis is the most common arthritis. It is an incurable condition which affects your joints. The surface within the joints become joints become damaged which stops the joints moving smoothly.  The symptoms of this are: o Pain and stiffness o Swelling o Not being able to move the joint normally o A grating/grinding feeling
