from training and playing. The most common injury for athletes are knee injuries. Some of the most common, but are not limited to, include ACL, MCL, patellofemoral pain, and strains. Knee braces are the most common way of helping reduce knee pain and prevent any further damage to the joint. Though helpful knee braces can sometimes be uncomfortable, are not always supportive enough, and are bulky. Due to these inconveniences, many athletes are turning to other alternative like Kinesio tape (K-tape).
Scoliosis. Each singular spine curvature indicates a specific form in which the spine lays out within the human body. In terms of Scoliosis, it is defined as an ailment that causes an irregular arch of the vertebral column. Now observing the spinal cord from a lateral view, it will always appear with distinct curves. However, when inspecting the spine from the posterior positioning of the human body, it should come into view as straight. The other forms of irregular spine curvature are identified as Kyphosis
contracted an infection living in Central African Republic while he was just a baby. This infection caused severe damage to Kevin’s hip, which made him smaller than the average boy. Since Kevin was only ten years old, other methods of treatment like braces would be very costly as he would out grow them every few months (Carter). The Chief of Orthopedic Research, Dr. Richard Schwend, at Children’s Mercy Hospital was able to fix Kevin’s
cases. Only 10% of cases involve the cervical spine. (Park et al. E130-E135) Symptoms And Side Effects Pott’s disease is one of the most dangerous forms of musculoskeletal tuberculosis, and can result in serious morbidity. Severe spinal deformities and associated neurological deficits are just a few of the negative side effects of the disease. (Ekinci et al. 89) Progressive destruction of the vertebral bodies as a result of the disease may lead to vertebral
Memory is a capacity that humans rely upon to relate to different events, experiences, conditions, and people. It is a vitally important process and system whereby the brain receives information from (external or internal) stimuli, stores it (encoding), and makes it available on a future occasion (retrieval). It provides continuity to people’s experiences across different periods of time. Research is increasingly concluding that the brain works as an integrated whole rather than a series of discrete
Introduction and Clinical Manifestations The brain and spinal cord make up the central nervous system (CNS), with the brain coordinating higher-level functions and the spinal cord relaying information from and to the peripheral nervous system (PNS). The CNS is contained within the dorsal cavity, with the brain protected by the skull and the spinal cord protected by the vertebrae. Despite this, injuries to the CNS are a global health problem because of the inability of central neurons to regenerate
lesion on the left inferior frontal lobe. Although Broca didn’t initially believe in functional specialisation, this evidence quickly changed his mind. He followed up this autopsy by examining the brains of a further 25 sufferers of expressive aphasia, and found that they all possessed abnormalities or lesions in the left inferior frontal lobe. This was not only some of the first evidence that suggested functional specialisation, or the ‘module’ theory of the brain, but also supported the theory of
The physicians have a separate line of authority that runs from the medical director to the other physicians. Weaknesses of a functional/parallel structure include the possibility of poor coordination across departments and the possibility that decision-making responsibilities may overload top leaders (Sullivan & Decker, 2009). Although the official organizational structure of Lone
