A well-developed, well-nourished female seated comfortably in the exam room. She does become tearful when discussing the amount of pain that she is in.
Her right upper extremity was examined. There is perhaps just very mild swelling at the wrist. She does complain of pain along the ulnar side of the wrist and there is tenderness to palpation there. She has decreased range of motion with flexion and extension as well as inversion and eversion at the wrist due to pain, per her report. She is able to fully flex and extend her fingers. There is no pain there. There is no pain at the elbow or as I move along distally to the forearm, until I get just to the wrist itself. There is no pain over the metacarpal bones, normal sensation throughout. There is less than two second cap refill.…

2. Bilateral cervical radicular pain C5-C6 L>R
3. Cervicogenic neck pain with cervicogenic headaches/bilateral occipital neuralgia.
4. Bilateral shoulder sprain/strain.
5. Bilateral wrist sprain/strain/bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome.
6. Bilateral hand/ first…
The purpose of this literature review paper is to analyze the use of proprioception training in individuals who have suffered a cerebrovascular accident, most commonly referred to as a stroke. As defined in the textbook (Coker, 2013), proprioception is “the continuous flow of sensory information received from receptors located in the muscles, tendons, joints, and inner ear regarding movement and body position.” A stroke can affect various areas of the brain, including those involved in balance…
Finger-Wrist condition, the Finger-Forearm condition, and the Wrist-Forearm condition. 20-psychology students participated in the study. All 20 participants participated in all three conditions. The 20 participants consisted of 13 females and 7 males, with age ranging between 19 and 45 (M=23.5). Of the 20 participants, 18 were right handed.
Three ‘metal paperclips’, of three lengths; 35 mm, 45 mm, 55 mm were used.
Participants were randomly allocated an order to complete the…
fingers, and wrist caused by injury to the muscles of the forearm. Another commonly used name is Ischemic Contracture. This deformity happens when there is a lack of blood flow to the forearm, which occurs when there is an increased pressure due to swelling causing a condition called compartment syndrome. Compartment syndrome can cause a Volkmann’s contracture. Injury to the arm, including a crash injury or fracture, leads to swelling that presses on blood vessels and decreases blood flow to…
Lateral epicondylitis is the most common type of myotendinosis which can cause pain and loss of function (Dilek, 2016). This condition is often called tennis elbow because it is most commonly found in tennis players. Although lateral epicondylitis is an injury that many people can get from there daily jobs, a case study of a seventeen-year-old male who was playing tennis developed lateral epicondylitis. Lateral epicondylitis is treated by doctors and is confirmed by radiologists. The boy in the…
force they have the fewest mitochondria in them so they fatigue easily.
We are doing this experiment to find out what types of muscle fibers the gastrocnemius and forearm muscles are built of. Being built from multiple muscle fiber types is important for maximal fatigue resistant and contraction. Before the experiment we hypothesized that the gastrocnemius would have the most type two b fiber types because they need to have a forceful contraction to help the frog jump. We also thought that the…

Bring the forearm in so that the arm is flexed to 90 degrees and move the hand down by rotating the shoulder forward. Now from this position assist the client by bringing the hand & forearm inward toward the midline of the body. Have the client assist in this motion, pain may be immediately felt, make sure the client knows to communicate moderate to severe pain and stop motion at that point.
Always test both shoulders for comparison and record clients ' responses within client files by…
Pain and tenderness in the upper lateral aspect of the right forearm, following the 17-year-old male’s practice, can be diagnosed as Lateral Epicondylitis, otherwise known as Tennis elbow.
Specific actions causing lateral epicondylitis in this patient include the repetitive actions of a backhand stroke in tennis as well as the bending back of the wrist against the resistance of the tennis racket and ball in which causes a repetitive strain (Jariwala A. et al 2012). Pain and discomfort is felt…
