Vascular Dementia can occur after a person has a stroke due to major blood vessels being blocked. iii. It also causes your thinking ability to decline by not allowing vital oxygen and nutrients to your brain cells. iv. 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.
• MRI. • CT scan. RISK FACTORS This condition is more likely to develop in: • People who play contact or collision sports, especially without adequate protective equipment. • People with poor shoulder strength and flexibility. • People who do not warm up properly before physical activity.
The episodes of numbness in the chin and lower lip and the sensations of prickling (pins and needles) at the right corner of her mouth are due to the alterations in the functions of somatic nervous system. Hypoesthesia is a state of loss or decreasing the capacity of sensation in general and skin in particular. The hypoesthesia is characterized by an insufficient response against the stimulus. Paresthesia is state where the individual felt a sensation of numbness or creeping. It usually occurs in the extremities of limbs and other parts of the body such as mandible or upper jaw.
Firstly, the loss of lower-limb functions, can be the result of many conditions; the most common being spinal-cord injury. Secondly, unstable posture can be caused by brain trauma and cerebral palsy. Lastly, general physical problems affecting the lower limbs, such as broken legs, obesity, and knee and hip joint problems that have caused arthritis. Each condition
The central cord syndrome occurs due to a spinal cord injury. When the person is affected loss of sense and motions of hands and legs is a common symptom. The central cord syndrome occurs due to the damage in the gray matter area of the spinal cord. In spinal stenosis is rare disorder which shows a narrowing of spinal cord in the foramen. It shows symptoms of loss of motor control, pain and paraesthesia.
Reverse palmaris longus was first described by Captain John T. Morrison in 1916 as an incidental post amputation finding .It may cause compartment syndrome in the Carpal tunnel and Guyons canal. The patient will present with pain and edema in the wrist region. This is an occupational hazard in people whose work involves repetitive wrist movements as it will result in hypertrophy and cause compression of median nerve and or ulnar nerve. This makes the modern day computer professional particularly vulnerable. Symptomatic patients presenting with a palpable volar swelling should be examined for variations in the palmaris longus.
Although cerebral palsy is known for greatly impacting physical development, it can also impact you intellectually. Aphasia is the loss of partial verbal expression, making pronouncing words more difficult. Dysarthria is abnormalities of facial muscle tone which makes it harder to make and control facial movements. (Speech and Language…., n.d, p. 1). These conditions can all be apart of the symptoms and affects of cerebral
Other problems include multiple sclerosis, in which damaged nerves prevent signals from traveling along them, and meningitis, which causes an inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord. The nervous system is formed of two parts that are integrally linked with each other. The brain and the nervous system has multiple functions that are vital for normal functioning of the body. Transmission of nerve
The cause of a learning disability is generally deemed to be related to the brain-neurologic system and thus, assumed to be caused by the following biological factors: a) brain injury from accidents, brain hemorrhages and tumors, and from exposure to toxic chemicals; b) errors in brain development in which there is slow development and maturation of certain regions of the brain necessary for certain cognitive processes like higher level thinking and “neural wirings” for processing information; c) chemical imbalances in the brain which is evident on cases involving difficulties in attention, impulsivity, and distractibility because of deficiencies in certain classes of neurotransmitters that control neural systems in the brain like for instance deficiency in Catecholamines for individuals with ADHD; and d) heredity in which researches show incidences of similar learning problems among parents, siblings, and other related individuals, and recently showed possibility that a specific gene is responsible for learning disabilities. Moreover, environmental factors such as the home and school environment, and child-rearing practices are also being considered because of its impact on the success or failure of learning disabled individuals. Factors such as emotional stress can affect an individual’s ability to learn. For instance, students with learning disability may not be able
Ankle sprain. Sudden movement can make you lose balance and end up twisting your ankles and their ligaments. This condition is known as an ankle sprain. The signs and symptoms of ankle sprain include pain that worsens when moving, swelling and bruising, tenderness, and a limited range of motion. It has been shown that in order to recover faster from an ankle sprain, rigid immobilization of the affected foot must be observed.
• Do activities that increase the chance of the thumb being pulled away from the rest of the hand. • Have poor hand strength and flexibility. SYMPTOMS Symptoms of this condition include: • Pain or tenderness over the injured area with movement of the thumb. • Pain when pressing on the injured area. • Bruising or redness at the base of the thumb.
This structure is the little bridge that serves as a means of communication between the left and right hemispheres. Split brain is the term used to describe the result when the corpus callosum connecting the two hemispheres is severed due to conditions such as epileptic seizures. Because the two hemispheres communicate with each other through this bridge, severing the bridge produces a disrupts connection between them and prevent them from communicating with each other, hence the term split brain. Once separated, each brain hemisphere operates solely. Thus having a split brain can pose certain challenges in a patient, which can be tested in a controlled laboratory study.
