Assessing Musculoskeletal Pain Essay
Assessing Musculoskeletal Pain EssayAssessing Musculoskeletal Pain EssayThe body is
constantly sending signals about its health. One of the most easily recognized signals is pain.
Musculoskeletal conditions comprise one of the leading causes of severe long-term pain in
patients. The musculoskeletal system is an elaborate system of interconnected levers that
provides the body with support and mobility. Because of the interconnectedness of the
musculoskeletal system, identifying the causes of pain can be challenging. Accurately
interpreting the cause of musculoskeletal pain requires an assessment process informed by
patient history and physical exams.ORDER NOW FOR CUSTOMIZED, PLAGIARISM-FREE

patients seen in a clinical setting.To prepare:· By Day 1 of this week, you will be assigned to
one of the following specific case studies for this Discussion. Please see the “Course

she is more concerned about her right ankle. She was playing soccer over the weekend and
heard a “pop.” She is able to bear weight, but it is uncomfortable. In determining the cause
of the ankle pain, based on your knowledge of anatomy,· what foot structures are likely
involved?· What other symptoms need to be explored? What are your differential diagnoses
for ankle pain?· What physical examination will you perform? What special maneuvers will
you perform? Should you apply the Ottawa ankle rules to determine if you need additional
testing?With regard to the case study you were assigned:· Review this week’s Learning
Resources, and consider the insights they provide about the case study.· Consider what
history would be necessary to collect from the patient in the case study you were assigned.·

information about the patient’s condition. How would the results be used to make a
diagnosis?· Identify at least five possible conditions that may be considered in a differential
diagnosis for the patient.Post an episodic/focused note about the patient in the case study
to which you were assigned using the episodic/focused note template provided in the Week
