 Pathologies of the Elbow, Wrist, and Hands [WLOs: 1, 2, 3] [CLOs: 1, 3, 4]

Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum, read Chapters 11, 12, and 13 in your course text and review the NIH web pages Elbow Injuries and Disorders (Links to an external site.)Wrist Injuries and Disorders (Links to an external site.), And Hand Injuries and Disorders (Links to an external site.). Then, watch the Hand Anatomy Animated Tutorial (Links to an external site.) video.

As highlighted in this week’s readings, pathologies to the elbows, wrists, and hands are a common experience. Some of you may have even encountered such conditions or injuries first-hand or know of an individual who has.

Select one of the subsequent cases and related pathology:

A 42-year old male has experienced a painful fall while skiing; he is complaining of extreme pain in his right elbow, which is also swollen.  Hector is unable to bend his right arm.  The diagnosis of elbow dislocation is made by the Emergency Care Physician.

A 55-year old female patient with diabetes complains about ongoing pain, tingling, and numbness in her left hand.  After a nerve conduction study was performed, her physician diagnosed her with carpal tunnel syndrome.

An 82-year old female recently fell and is now complaining of pain when flexing her right wrist.  She also experiences swelling and tenderness.  After being examined by her physician and having undergone an x-ray, she was diagnosed with a Colles’ fracture.

In your discussion,

  • Assess the common causes of your selected pathology.
  • Research a video in the Ashford University Library via the Films On Demand database or another multimedia source of your choice which includes closed captioning and educates your peers about the pathology you selected above.
  • Include a description on how to access the video, or include the direct link to your video within your discussion forum posting.
  • Analyze how the change in structure can impact your selected person’s function on a daily basis. How might the patient in the case study compensate in order to accomplish normal activities?

Reference your textbook, and include at least one additional scholarly or credible source to support your research and findings (see the Scholarly, Peer-Reviewed, and Other Credible Sources (Links to an external site.) table for assistance). All sources must be referenced and cited according to APA Style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center (see Introduction to APA (Links to an external site.) for assistance).

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
