Quality of Life Among Tawau Research Paper

… On the other hand, the tibia has two sockets (slightly cup-shaped) to meet the femoral condyles. A healthy knee alignment has femoral condyles that rest evenly on the tibia as well as applying evenly to both sides. However, knee deformity could lead to asymmetrical force distributions. A valgus (knock-kneed) deformity occurs when the knees closer together than normal. These deformities could lead to asymmetrical degeneration of the knee cartilage leading to osteoarthritic knee.

On the other hand, knee OA could occur due to the problem with the backbone.

Backbone of an individual is made of combination of bone structure. The backbone is generally referred as vertebral column that supports the body weight, and 33 vertebrae bone are made up of vertebra column. Apart from the…. [read more]

Falls the Issue of Accidental Essay

… (2007) note that the financial implications for the hospitals themselves in terms of additional costs and addition bed-days per involved patient adds up to a significant amount, with the National Health Service of Great Britain having to settle claims on the order of GBP 7.7 million, the equivalent of $12.2 million (p177). Over half of these costs were attributed to hip and pelvic fractures alone, suggesting that, in the population surveyed in Great Britain, a pattern can begin to emerge, related to the overhwhelming incidence of such accidental falls involving elderly patients. These statistics are borne out by reporting on the subject by the CDC in America. The CDC reports that, in 2009, there were 2.2 million emergency room visits required by older adults in….

Pharmacological and Non-Pharmacological Treatment of Plantar Fasciitis Term Paper

… Pharmacological and Non-Pharmacological Treatment of Plantar Fasciitis

Overweight persons, those who spend most of the day on their feet and those who do a lot of running, walking and jumping are at-risk individuals for plantar fasciitis (Edwards 2003). The vast majority, non-atheltic individuals are the second population at risk. Many of these at-risk populations rely on word-of-mouth, publications and newspaper stories for needed information. And the general public has no access to this information other than the feedback they obtain from the media and other people. There is unqualified need for patients and their doctors to provide the information to these at-risk groups and to address the potential problem in their clinics, workplace, the community, offices and homes. Podiatric pathology laboratories screen 30,000-foot specimens a…. [read more]

Charcot Marie Tooth Syndrome Term Paper

… Charcot-Marie Tooth Syndrome

Definition and Causes - the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Syndrome or CMT is an inherited peripheral polyneuropathy first described independently by French professor Jean-Martin Charcot and his student Pierre Marie in 1886 and later by Howard Henry Tooth in his dissertation in the same year (PatientPlus 2005, Kedlaya 2005). This inherited neurological disease is characterized by a slowly progressive degeneration of the muscles in the foot, the lower leg, hand and forearm and also a mild loss of sensation in the limbs, fingers and toes (National Human Genome Research Institute 2004). Genetic mutations in this heterogeneous disorder cause the deterioration of nerves that control the muscles of the hand, arm, foot and leg (Avicena 2005). This progressive deterioration of the muscles results in a range…. [read more]
