Inflammatory Musculoskeletal Diseases

...Inflammatory Musculoskeletal Diseases Name Instructor Institution Musculoskeletal disorders are common and they can affect different age groups, frequently causing disability and immobility. They cause discomfort or pain in the joints, bones and muscles. The disorders can range from being acute to chronic, diffuse or focal. The chances of a person developing musculoskeletal disorders increase with age, but they are more common among the elderly. The disorders can range from back pain and gout, as well as rheumatoid arthritis, musculoskeletal pain and tendinitis. Treatments vary depending on the age of the patient, and there is a need for physicians to intervene early before the disease progresses to ensure better chances of recovery. The physiology of aging is an important aspect of treatment for musculoskeletal problems. “Immunosenescence” is a term that refers to changes in the immune system which is characterized by declined cellular immunity resulting to increase in auto antibodies. T-cell and cytokine production also decrease. Aging results in musculoskeletal changes. The tendons, ligaments and where they attach to bonesfray and weaken; muscle mass, quality, and strength also lessen. The gait of a person with musculoskeletal problems changes with age; gait speed, stride length and step length are reduced ((Phyllis & Samuel, 2009). Treatment in older patients is risky because of polypharmacy where patients attend......

Deficiencies might consist of inborn abnormalities, and origins from other disorders like breaks, losing body extremities, and cerebral palsy (Heller, 2001). Pupils with bone disorders seldom are in regular classrooms. This paper evaluates an orthopedic and musculoskeletal disorder along with an advocated educational intervention: Osteogenesis Imperfecta. Musculoskeletal Disorders Bottom of Form Osteogenesis imperfecta is also known as the “brittle bone” disorder. It is an inherited disease where a person’s bones are broken with no problem. Almost all incidences of osteogenesis imperfecta are triggered by a domineering chromosomal imperfection. A lot of the population of kids that have osteogenesis imperfecta were born with this disease and they received it from one or both of their parents and other children that have this disease have no idea how or why they got it because no one in their family has had this ailment. There are four types of osteogenesis imperfecta that researchers have......

Hcs 212 Orthopedic Awareness

...Orthopedic Awareness University of Phoenix Health Care Vocabulary 212 December 27, 2012 Orthopedic Awareness After a fall or traumatic injury, there is a need for immediate care by and orthopedic physician. Conservative care, such as time, bracing, or casting or more immediate care like surgical intervention can be just what the physician has to do. Minor injuries or just regular wear and tear can cause pain and problems and over time can lead to other orthopedic issues such as improper body mechanics. Overuse of one side of the body can cause injury to the opposite side of the body because the patient does not treat the immediate issue of getting a knee evaluated for total joint replacement or arthroplasty. The main causes of body breakdown are poor diet, lack of exercise and not getting treatment early enough for minor injuries, which leads to early onset of arthritis. Screening is available to assess bone loss but this test is only available with an order from a physician. Poor diet and attention to the amounts of food people are consuming is a hot topic in the media and in public schools. The volume of food consumed has risen and people waistlines have expanded as a result. Schools are changing the foods they offer and the number of calories children can eat at lunch. Removing vending machines and extra snacks from their daily choices of food is happening in schools too. There is a diet option that not many people know about that when implemented into......

After research on this specific disorder here is what I have found. Social anxiety disorder affects your emotions and behavior. It can also cause significant physical symptoms. Some of the emotional and behavioral signs may include intense fear of interacting with strangers, feared of being judged, worrying about embarrassing yourself, fear of looking anxious, anxiety disrupts your daily routine, fear of being the center of attention and lack of eye contact. Physical signs of this disorder may include blushing, sweating, trembling, fast heartbeat, upset stomach, nausea, shaky voice, muscle tension, and confusion. When you have social anxiety disorder, you realize that your anxiety or fear is out of proportion to the situation. Yet you're so worried about developing social anxiety disorder symptoms that you avoid situations that may trigger them. This type of worrying creates a vicious cycle that can make symptoms worse. You should see your doctor or mental health provider if you are in fear or if you tend to avoid interactions with people because you are afraid of being embarrassed, worry or panic. If this type of anxiety disrupts your everyday life, you may have social anxiety disorder or another type of mental health condition that requires treatment to get better. Social anxiety disorder symptoms can change over time.......

...There are many different disorders listed in the DSM-TR-IV and they have causes and treatments. When working in the psychology field it is important to be aware of different disorders their causes and treatment options. There are different theoretical approaches for each disorder. The four disorders that will be discussed in this paper are dependent personality disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, somatoform disorder, and schizoid personality disorder. Individuals that suffer from schizoid personality disorder avoid social relationships and do not show emotion. “The reason they avoid social contact, however, has nothing to do with paranoid feelings of distrust or suspicion; it is because they genuinely prefer to be alone” (Comer, 2011). Theorists explain this disorder with two different approaches that include psychodynamic and cognitive. Some people believe that schizoid personality disorder is caused by abusive or negligent parents. Psychodynamic theorists according to Comer believe that individuals that suffer from schizoid personality disorder are unable to give or receive love and many other emotions. Cognitive theorists suggest that individuals that suffer from schizoid personality disorder suffer from deficiencies in their thinking according to Comer. Individuals that suffer from schizoid personality disorder do not always seek treatment because they do not like to be in a social setting where they would need to interact with another individual. There are no......

The Aging Musculoskeletal System

...The Aging Musculoskeletal System Osteoporosis is a condition where the bones become thinner and fragile because of low bone density. This condition puts people at risk of fractures. Men in women are both affected by osteoporosis, but women are affected more than men. Postmenopausal woman are more likely to develop the condition, this is an asymptomatic condition. Our 84 year small boned white female is a candidate for osteoporosis. The most common risk factors are small frame, gender, age, ethnicity, and genetics. (MacGill, 2015) Osteoarthritis mostly affects the joint; it is sometimes called the degenerative joint disease. Osteoarthritis is more common in older people. More men are affected than women with osteoarthritis. Younger people can develop the disease usually as a result of a joint injury, a joint malformation, or a genetic defect. In osteoarthritis, the surface layer of the cartilage breaks and wears away; this than allow the bones under the cartilage to rub together, causing pain, swelling and loss of motion of the joint. Joints that the disease affects most are the fingers, thumbs, neck, lower back, knees and hips. Stiffness, swelling and crunching feeling in the joints areas would be a signs of osteoarthritis. (Gayle Lester, Ph.D., Joan McGowan, Ph,D.,, 2013) Muscular Atrophy is the wasting or loss of muscle tissue. There are two types of muscle atrophy. Disuse atrophy is when the muscle is not being use enough; this type is reversible with exercise and......

Aging Musculoskeletal System

...Kaemia Howard (19075564) Anatomy and Physiology The Aging Musculoskeletal System At the age of 84, your bones have taken a toll throughout your life time. This leaves you susceptible to a few bone diseases. Three of the most common diseases are Osteoporosis, Osteoarthritis and Muscular Atrophy. With Osteoporosis, it is a disease in which bones become fragile and more likely to fracture. Usually the bone loses density, which measures the amount of calcium and minerals in the bone. Since our bones undergo bone remodeling quite often in the younger years we do not think of the potential or likelihood of being diagnosed with Osteoporosis or Osteoarthritis. However as we age our bones do not recover and remodel as fast, causing loss of bone density. The more mass that is “banked” when younger leads to the smaller risk of having the disease. Much like Osteoporosis is Osteoarthritis. The more wear and tear you put on your bones and joints the more susceptible you are to Osteoarthritis. With these disorders maintain a popular quo among the elderly; the future diagnosis is almost certain to happen. An 84 year old thin female has more than likely already been diagnosed with one of the two disorders, if not both. Osteoarthritis can be very painful and can on more than one occasion hinder any plans that have been set forth, from a trip to the grocery store or an entire vacation. This is especially true of those who have the arthritis in their hands, fingers and knees. The......

Musculoskeletal and Aging

...movements along with the support of the muscles providing the force and strength to move our body. Together, all these elements shape our musculoskeletal system and allow us to perform our everyday physical activities. Researchers know that both genes and the environment contribute to bone health. While genes largely decide some elements of bone wellness, outside factors, such as diet and physical activity, are critically very important to bone health throughout a person’s life. In the medical field it is a fact that the growth of our skeletal bones and the role it plays as a mineral reservoir, and a home for marrow, depends on the circulating hormones that travel throughout the human body and reacts to changes in blood calcium and phosphorus. If these two minerals are in diminutive supply, those regulating hormones will take them out of the bone to serve other vital functions in our body systems. Too many withdrawals can deteriorate the bone, and that’s why the maintenance of constant level of calcium in the blood as well as adequate supply of phosphorus and calcium in cells is critical for the function of all body organs. Genetic issues can produce thin weak bones, or ones that are thick, and the outcome of nutritional deficiencies can result in under mineralized and fragile bone. As I have mentioned earlier bones are a part of the musculoskeletal system, they do not work in isolation, but rather in conjunction with the muscles, they are the lever that allows the......

Marketing of Orthopedic Practices

...To hone in on an appropriate target market, orthopedic practices can choose any number of tactics. One that some find effective is limiting the types of clinical challenges the practice takes on, such as deciding to see only those patients with low back problems. Consider an orthopedic group in the greater Atlanta area that specializes in pediatric orthopedics. If they were to develop a target market definition, it might look something like this: “Parents with incomes of $60,000 and up, in white-collar positions, with insurance, who live in the greater Atlanta metro area in zip codes 30342 near Buckhead in Atlanta, 30329 near Emory University, 30319 and the like.” Such a highly specific market definition would definitely increase the practice’s ability to do targeted marketing. It might at some point decide, for example, to purchase metro edition advertising in the Atlanta Constitution that targets just these particular areas and minimizes coverage beyond the group’s target market. The advantage in having a target market? Their message becomes highly refined. They can advertise in very defined publications that appeal to women and the service mix can be tailored clinically to this population. Having a succinct marketing strategy forces the orthopedic group to decide on exactly whom it is trying to reach in terms of patients and referral sources, and to uncover their needs. That's a good thing, actually. First of all, having a "targeted marketing" mentality just makes......

...Bipolar disorder is also known as Manic-Depressive Illness, it is often categorized as a mood disorder, which causes a person’s mood to shift. A person who is suffering from the disorder can have their mood shift from an energetic or elevated mood to depression and mania for no apparent reason. These episodes can last anywhere from days to weeks. It has been said that more than two million adult Americans suffer from bipolar disorder (Mulvihill, Zelman, Holdaway, Tompary, & Raymond, 2006). The known age of onset is younger than 30, but with an average age of 18 (Gearon & Bellack, 2000). Some people can experience symptoms during childhood, and then later in life have it fully develop, but generally if develop in early adulthood. Bipolar disorder is often not recognized as an illness, and people may go years suffering without a proper diagnosis, or treatment, “one in five people with untreated bipolar disorder successfully take his or her life” (Goodwin, & Jamison, 1990). This statistic is not only overwhelming, but scary. Knowing how many young Americans suffer from this disorder to know one in five of those people will commit suicide is just heart-wrenching. Bipolar disorder does not only affect someone’s mood, but life style as well. Researchers have found that other aspects of a person’s life is effected like, ability to keep a job, sexual indiscretions, alcohol or substance abuse, and life decisions. The disorder order often alters a person’s judgment when making......
