Ulnar nerve palsy due to axillary crutch. (1/48)

A young lady with residual polio, using axillary crutch since early childhood, presented with tingling, numbness and weakness in ulnar nerve distribution of five months duration. Ulnar motor conduction study revealed proximal conduction block near the axilla, at the point of pressure by the crutch while walking. Distal ulnar sensory conduction studies were normal but proximal ulnar sensory conduction studies showed absence of Erb's point potential. These findings suggested the presence of conduction block in sensory fibers as well. Proper use and change of axillary crutch resulted in clinical recovery and resolution of motor and sensory conduction block.  (+info)

Upper-limb pain in long-term poliomyelitis. (2/48)

BACKGROUND: Late functional deterioration is common in long-term poliomyelitis patients. While upper-limb pain in individual functional regions is common, its overall prevalence and pattern in long-term poliomyelitis is poorly documented. AIM: To assess the nature of upper-limb pain in these patients and examine its association with dependence on mobility aids (and therefore upper limb 'overuse'). DESIGN: Questionnaire-based survey of patients attending a specialist unit. METHODS: Questionnaires were sent to 139 patients with known long-term poliomyelitis (mean 49.8 years post polio), attending the Lane Fox Unit out-patient clinic at St Thomas' Hospital between January 1998 and December 1998. There were questions on the nature of the patient's acute illness, limb involvement at initial infection ('polio-affected' limbs), the site and onset of upper-limb pain, hand dominance, previous injuries and surgery, and the use of mobility aids. Limbs that had sustained an injury or undergone surgery, at or preceding onset of upper-limb pain, were excluded from analysis. RESULTS: Among 103 valid replies, the prevalence of upper limb pain was 64%. Mobility aids were used by 74%, and were associated with an increased risk of upper-limb pain, while 'polio-affected' limbs were at reduced risk. DISCUSSION: These data support 'overuse' due to greater mobility aid dependence as a cause of increasing upper-limb pain in long-term poliomyelitis.  (+info)

Hypertrophy of chronically unloaded muscle subjected to resistance exercise. (3/48)

In an effort to simulate the compromised function and atrophy of lower limb muscles experienced by astronauts after spaceflight, 21 men and women age 30-56 yr were subjected to unilateral lower limb unloading for 5 wk. Whereas 10 of these subjects performed unilateral knee extensor resistance exercise (ULRE) two or three times weekly, 11 subjects (UL) refrained from training. The exercise regimen consisted of four sets of seven maximal actions, using an apparatus that offers concentric and eccentric resistance by utilizing the inertia of rotating flywheel(s). Knee extensor muscle strength was measured before and after UL and ULRE, and knee extensor and ankle plantar flexor muscle volumes were determined by means of magnetic resonance imaging. Surface electromyographic activity measured after UL inferred increased muscle use to perform a given motor task. UL induced an 8.8% decrease (P < 0.05) in knee extensor muscle volume. After ULRE and as a result of only approximately 16 min of maximal contractile activity over the 5-wk course, muscle volume increased 7.7% (P < 0.05). Muscle strength decreased 24-32% (P < 0.05) in response to UL. Group ULRE showed maintained (P > 0.05) strength. Ankle plantar flexor muscle volume of the unloaded limb decreased (P < 0.05) in both groups (UL 10.5%; ULRE 11.1%). In neither group did the right weight-bearing limb show any change (P > 0.05) in muscle volume or strength. The results of this study provide evidence that resistance exercise not only may offset muscle atrophy but is in fact capable of promoting marked hypertrophy of chronically unloaded muscle.  (+info)

Comparison of the Easy Strutter Functional Orthosis System and axillary crutches during modified 3-point gait. (4/48)

The Easy Strutter Functional Orthosis System (ESFOS) was designed to improve assistive device ambulatory efficiency. This crossover design study compared the ESFOS to axillary crutches during modified 3-point gait. Thirty-eight subjects (40-65 years of age) at > 1 year after unilateral total knee or hip replacement participated in this study. Heart rate, mean peak palmar and plantar force magnitude, and onset timing were monitored during self-directed pace ambulation. Between trials, subjects responded to questions on perceived exertion, stability/security, and comfort. One-way analyses of variance were used to evaluate condition differences for ratio or interval data (p < or = 0.01). Statistically significant differences were noted for mean peak palmar forces (reduced 45% and delayed 31%), mean peak plantar force onsets (delayed 30%), and energy expenditure index (EEI) (reduced 25%). Wilcoxon signed rank tests were used to evaluate condition differences for ordinal data. Subjects preferred the ESFOS to axillary crutches for comfort and security/stability on flat surfaces and stairs (p < or = 0.001). Results suggest greater ambulatory gait efficiency during ESFOS use. Further study is indicated with other patient populations.  (+info)

Validity of the walking scale for spinal cord injury and other domains of function in a multicenter clinical trial. (5/48)

OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate criterion (concurrent and predictive) and construct validity of the Walking Index for Spinal Cord Injury (WISCI) scale and other walking measures in the Spinal Cord Injury Locomotor Trial (SCILT). DESIGN: Prospective multicenter clinical trial of a walking intervention for patients with acute traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI). PARTICIPANTS/ METHODS: Body weight-supported treadmill training was compared to overground mobility training in 146 patients with incomplete SCI (C4 to L3) enrolled within 8 weeks of onset and treated for 12 weeks. Primary outcome measures were the Functional Independence Measure (FIM), 50-foot walking speed (50FW-S), and 6-minute walking distance (6MW-D), tested 3, 6, and 12 months after entry. Secondary measures were the Lower Extremity Motor Score (LEMS), Berg Balance Scale (BBS), WISCI, and FIM locomotor score (LFIM), assessed at 6 centers by blinded observers. Data for the 2 arms were combined since no significant differences in outcomes had been found. RESULTS: Correlations with WISCI at 6 months were significant with BBS (r = .90), LEMS (r = .85), LFIM (r = .89), FIM (r = .77), 50FW-S (r = .85), and 6MW-D ( r = .79); similar correlations occurred at 3 and 12 months. Correlations of change scores from baseline WISCI were significant for change scores from baseline of LEMS/BBS/LFIM. Correlation of baseline LEMS and WISCI at 12 months were most significant (r = .73). The R(2) of baseline LEMS explained 57% of variability of WISCI levels at 3 months. CONCLUSION: Concurrent validity of the WISCI scale was supported by significant correlations with all measures at 3, 6, and 12 months. Correlation of change scores supports predictive validity. The LEMS at baseline was the best predictor of the WISCI score at 12 months and explained most of the variance, which supported both predictive and construct validity. The combination of the LEMS, BBS, WISCI, 50FW-S, and LFIM appears to encompass adequate descriptors for outcomes of walking trials for incomplete SCI.  (+info)

Upper extremity dynamics during Lofstrand crutch-assisted gait in children with myelomeningocele. (6/48)

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: We present a 3-dimensional biomechanical model of the upper extremities to characterize joint dynamics during 2 patterns of Lofstrand crutch-assisted gait in children with myelomeningocele. The upper extremity model incorporates recommendations by the International Society of Biomechanics. METHODS: A Vicon motion analysis system (14 cameras) captured the marker patterns. Instrumented crutches measured reaction forces. Five subjects with L3 or L4 level myelodysplasia (aged 9.8 +/- 1.6 years) were analyzed during reciprocal and swing-through Lofstrand crutch-assisted gait. RESULTS: The mean walking speed, cadence, and stride length were greatest during swing-through gait. Although the gait patterns had different morphologies, the thorax and elbows remained in flexion, the wrists remained in extension, and the shoulders demonstrated both flexion and extension throughout the gait cycles. Swing-through gait showed larger ranges of motion for all joints than reciprocal gait. Peak crutch forces were highest during swing-through gait. The model was effective in detecting significant differences in upper extremity joint dynamics between reciprocal and swing-through crutch-assisted gait in children with myelomeningocele. CONCLUSIONS: Results support continued testing. Future work should include clinical and functional assessment in a correlated study of dynamics and function. Knowledge from the study may be useful in treatment planning and intervention.  (+info)

The effect of walking with an assistive device and using a wheelchair on school performance in students with myelomeningocele. (7/48)

An alternating-condition, single-subject research design was used to examine the effect of ambulation on three measures of school performance in three students with myelomeningocele. The subjects, aged 9, 10, and 15 years, had a physiological cost index greater than 1.00 beats per meter when walking with crutches or a walker. Subjects propelled a wheelchair at school for 5 days, ambulated with crutches or a walker for 5 days, and propelled a wheelchair for an additional 5 days. Performance in reading fluency, visuomotor accuracy, and manual dexterity was assessed at the end of each school day. Results were graphed and analyzed using the two-standard-deviation band method. All subjects had significantly lower visuomotor accuracy scores during the assistive-device ambulation phase than during the wheelchair phases. Performance in manual dexterity during the assistive-device ambulation and wheelchair phases varied among the subjects. Reading fluency was not affected by method of mobility. The results suggest that the high energy cost of walking may have a negative effect on certain aspects of the subjects' school performance. [Franks CA, Palisano RJ, Darbee JC.

In this paper, crutch tips for axillary crutches made of ethylene-propylene rubbers are reported. Made of those kinds of rubbers, they have several advantages. That is, they can be added favorite colors in the produced process. They seldom melt and change colors. And they have no poisonous ingredients. The authors make two kinds of them for axillary crutches made of woods, because they are popularly used in Japanese hospitals now. The authors put the two new types through an endurance test. The test is continued for one hundred hours on condition that one hundred degree centigrade and two point five kilogram weight. Also, they put the old one made of a natural rubber through the same test. On comparison between the new ones and the old one, the formers are more enduring and less meltable than the latter. They also report that the users have a good impression to the new ones. ...
Ptosis crutches (also known as eye crutches) are a non-surgical solution to Ptosis, also known as drooping eyelid syndrome. Affected eyes do not have the ability to open and close properly. In severe cases, a person is not able to open the affected eyelid. Ptosis eye crutches are tools installed to existing eyewear that support the affected eyelid, enabling the eyelid to stay open and allowing an individual to see. Crutches are used to keep an eyelid from drooping due to Ptosis. Individuals with Ptosis who are not candidates for reparable surgery or are looking for an alternative treatment, may consider Ptosis crutches. A Ptosis crutch is bar that is placed along the inside of an eyewire frame that supports the drooping eyelid. The crutch is positioned where the orbital fold would typically be without Ptosis. The crutch should create a fold above the eye, tucking the lid in and raising it above the pupil. The Ptosis crutch is designed around the shape and contour of the eye. It is typically made ...
If you ever break a bone in your leg or foot, have a surgical procedure on your lower limb or suffer a stroke, you may need to use crutches, a cane or a walker. In the beginning, everything you do may seem difficult, but with a few tips and some practice, you will gain confidence and learn to use your walking aid safely. Crutches If an injury or surgical procedure requires you to keep your weight off of your leg or foot, you may have to use crutches. The top of your crutches should reach to 1-1 1/2 inches below your armpits while you stand up straight. The handgrips of the crutches should be even with the top of your hip line. Your elbows should bend a bit when you use the handgrips. Hold the top of the crutches tightly to your sides, and use your hands to absorb the weight. Dont let the tops of the crutches press into your armpits. Walking: Lean forward slightly and put your crutches about one foot ahead of you. Begin your step as if you were going to use the injured foot or leg, but shift ...

The use of forearm crutches has been associated with pain and neuropraxia along the ulnar bone. Whilst anatomic grips have improved comfort of crutch walking, to date anatomic forearm cuffs have not been clinically evaluated. The aim of this clinical pilot study was to determine if the use of forearm crutches with anatomic cuffs reduces pain and increases comfort and function in long-term users of forearm crutches during a 4-week period. Prospective study in ten patients suffering from end-stage osteoarthritis of the lower extremity. All participants were long-term users of conventional forearm crutches. Participants used forearm crutches with an anatomically shaped cuff for 4-weeks. General health was assessed using the SF-36, and the crutches were evaluated using a newly developed questionnaire focusing on symptoms along the forearm. Pain and paresthesia along the forearms decreased by 3.3 points (95% confidence interval difference (CI): [−5.0; −1.6], p = .004) and 3.5 points (95%CI: [−5.1; −1

Follow me closely: Metro Council member Eric Crafton wants to stop all of Metros bilingual efforts because he says that they are a crutch (his unproven assumption being that the people who rely on bilingual efforts do not require such assistance), but he wants to give himself and other private developers the crutch of not having to be burdened with Metro sidewalk fees (his unproven assumption being that developers like himself require such assistance). I guess crutches are okay when they help your own. Fellow Metro Council member Michael Craddock also wants to help immigrants break free of their disadvantage. How paternal of him. I guess it is just not worthy to try to help people who do not yet have a firm grasp of English to pursue immunizations or to place emergency calls in, well, emergencies. Surely these big-hearted philanthropists are going to replace bilingual crutches with proposed funding bills for comprehensive, and thus expensive, new Metro-wide programs that aggressively teach ...

This all goes back to a point we made years ago: industries that have embraced copyright for the entirety of their business model have set copyright up as a crutch on which they lean. Rather than exercising the rest of their body, finding all sorts of other good business models that allow them to improve the experience for customers, they just keep leaning on that crutch and insist its entirely necessary for them to live. And thus, those other muscles atrophy and wither away. So now that the world is changing and innovating, and others are demonstrating lots of great ways to better serve the public, the copyright maximalists are insisting its all impossible. They need that damn crutch, and anything else is piracy. They only have themselves to blame, of course. For decades, people have been explaining to them and showing them how to build better services, how to offer better experiences for everyone, while still making money. And, all they do is lean more on that old crutch and insist its ...
Lisa Schultz is in Sierra Leone celebrating World Peace Day by distributing 10,000 pairs of crutches to disabled men, women and children. Many are victims of the country's civil war.
First assess whether you need a rollator or a walking cane. Rollators will give you the most support. Consult with your physician and determine that you are in need of one. Canes are the lightest walking aids, and transfer weight to your wrist and forearm. Walking Canes are not meant to sustain a large amount of your body weight. They are intended to improve balance and aid in light ...
Team Zaryen is a Haitian Amputee soccer team, located in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Zaryen is the Creole word for Tarantula. When asked why the tarantula was chosen to represent the soccer team the players give two answers. First because when a tarantula attacks, it pursues its enemy slowly and is deadly with just one bite. A tarantula is a spider known to carry on despite the loss of a leg and with the ability to regrow a lost limb. Another reason for the team mascot is because the tarantula has so many legs, much like the appearance of the soccer players with their loftstrand (forearm) crutches. Amputee soccer is an adapted sport played with 7 players on each team (6 field players and 1 goal keeper) on a smaller field. Field players have lower extremity amputations, and goalkeepers have an upper extremity amputation. Field players use loftstrand (forearm) crutches, and play without their prosthesis. The male and female teams were organized by amputees in August 2010 at Hospital Bernard Mevs. A ...

When my son T.J. was a little guy, between the ages of 3 and 6 he was a big fan of the Anaheim Mighty Ducks Hockey Team. Jim, (my husband) always teased him that the Mighty Ducks played hockey with crutches and canes. His Daddy told him that they didnt even have a real goalie; that Granny Smith played in net. It was a big joke in our family. T.J. would wear his Mighty Ducks jacket and his Mighty ducks jersey and everyone would ask him if he was a fan and he would tell that the Mighty Ducks were the BEST ever hockey team! And Jimmy would tease him and say NO WAY… the mighty ducks play with crutches and canes, they cant really compete with any other hockey team….. and so it went for a few years. As you can imagine T.J. was really excited when Daddy finally took him to his first real hockey game to see the Mighty Ducks play against Jims favorite team, the Calgary Flames. But when the two hockey teams skated out onto the ice, his excitement truned to confusion. T.J. was really shocked and ...

The doctor may take various tests depending on how the injury looks and other symptoms. An x-ray can help to rule out any broken bones, while examining the condition of nearby arteries and nerves can also be crucial in ruling out further complications. If the patellar has been dislocated then this can generally be put back into position with relative ease by a professional. This involves realigning the kneecap with the end of the femur. In the case of a more serious knee joint dislocation the tibia is dislocated from the femur, and because this affects more of the leg bones the injury requires more treatment. Surgery is often necessary to repair the joint, and this can leave you on crutches after the injury has been treated. Crutches assist in reducing pressure on the knee and removing the need to bear weight. A return to judo should only be undertaken when you are free of symptoms and have completed a program of physical therapy to rebuild strength and flexibility. The doctor can advise you ...
Another example, but this one is ONLY if she is feeling good: take the 1 train to the very last stop at South Ferry. You will have all the time in the world to get off and there are escalators (walk in the opposite direction the train came in when you get there). Hobble over to the waterfront -- bam -- and now youve seen the statue of liberty without going there. Crutch up Broad Street and take a break for a snack on Stone Street, crutch back up Broad past the Stock exchange, past Trinity and to Ground Zero...it really isnt that far...then go shopping at Century 21 after. Grab a cab if she is tired, and head over to the South Street Seaport to try and get tickets to a show. If you get tickets, you are golden. If not, you could cab it up and do the Nolita/Chinatown thing that day. Make sure to look at the Woolworth Bldg on the way to the seaport, and make sure to stare at the Brooklyn Bridge once you are down there. Given that you will be hitting Stone Street and the Seaport, you will want to ...
Hurns is considered day-to-day with a sprained ankle. He was carried off the field and never returned to the game. He also dropped a pass where he was wide open in what ended up as an ugly loss to the Redskins. If Hurns cant go in Week 3, and Cecil Shorts remains out, the Jags WR duties fall on Marquis Lee and Allen Robinson, both rookies drafted back in May. Lee had just two catches in the game while Robinson was a lone bright spot catching four balls for 75 yards.. ...

Whether preparing your patients for a procedure or helping them recover, nurses will need to provide psychological support and coaching for patients and their family members. Discharge planning and teaching take place as patients recover. Some patients may need a home care consultation before discharge, and others may need orthopedic equipment for home use. Physical therapists teach crutch walking during pre-admission testing or once patients are stabilized after surgery and near discharge. Family members or friends will be providing care and nurses need to provide teaching before the patients discharge. See Major duties for same-day procedures for more detail.. Good communication with the anesthesiologist and surgeon is vital. Nurses follow the same-day surgery policy for monitoring medical patients and helping surgical patients recover. Reporting any changes in condition is especially important because most patients will be discharged home within a few hours. At some same-day surgery units, ...
Three studies had been completed and submitted for publication at the time of the interview. Researchers utilized a variety of data analysis methods: internal consistency of measures, means standard deviation of statistics, and discriminant function analysis with some follow-ups. The majority of participants (68.9%) used some form of assistive device (e.g., artificial limb, cane, crutches, scooter, wheelchair), were female (62.1%), and Caucasian (91.9%). The mean age of participants was 52.5 years (SD = 13.9). Participants completed and returned standardized questionnaires for each transtheoretical model (TTM) construct, along with a measure of exercise barriers. In univariate analyses, all of the constructs were significantly (p , .001) associated with the stages of change for exercise behavior. The largest portion of variance was derived from the behavioral processes of change (h2 = .40), followed by self-efficacy (h2 = .30), decisional balance (h2 = .24), the cognitive processes of change (h2 ...
Modern biomechanical and gait analyses identify excessive demands being placed on the joints and muscles. Overly strained muscles, tendons, and ligaments wear out. The proper therapeutic approach is to correct any deformities and to reduce excessive strain with appropriate orthoses (bracing), assistive devices (canes, crutches, etc.), changes in lifestyle, or selective reconstructive surgery.. Joint deformities are most common in the lower extremities. An individuals function may be limited due to the abnormal postures required for standing and walking. Deformities, also a source of pain, can be grouped based on their cause: soft tissue contractures, excessive ligamentous laxity, and abnormal bony angulation.. Contractures (restrictive soft tissue tightness) develop from muscle imbalances around a joint. If opposing muscle lacks the strengthto move a joint through its normal range of motion, the stronger muscle may become short and the opposing weaker muscle may become stretched. Additionally, ...

PATIENT PRESENTATION An 11-year-old male is referred to physical therapy with a diagnosis of Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease (LCPD). Gait analysis reveals an antalgic gait on the affected side. The child reports 7/10 pain in the hip and groin and difficulty with ambulation and stair climbing. His passive range of motion (RON) is limited in hip internal rotation, abduction, and extension. The parents report use of a Scottish-Rite brace was unsuccessful and the child is scheduled for surgical correction. The therapist instructs the child in crutch training pre-op and then provides gait training, RMO exercises, and strengthening post-op.. ...
Afterwards, patient will undergo a similar recovery and rehabilitation process as someone who receives a primary knee replacement. This includes medication, physical therapy, and the administration of blood thinners to prevent clots. Patient will initially require an assistive walking device such as a cane, crutches, or walker and you will likely be in physical therapy for three months or longer. As with the original knee replacement, it is important to stand and walk as quickly as possible. Pressure, compression, or resistance is needed for the bone to grow and properly bond with the implant.. The length of recovery after revision knee surgery varies in comparison to a patients first knee replacement. Some individuals take longer to recover from revision surgery while others recover more rapidly and experience less discomfort than during the initial TKR.. Various studies indicate that about 80 percent of patients that undergo a revision surgery experience excellent results. However, about 20 ...

The headline is not intended to be in any way flippant. It is an easy trap to fall into though: preaching to readers what is easy and what is difficult for wheelchair users, what they should or shouldnt do, when the statements you are proposing are not rooted in personal experience, rather guesswork or a few hours online research. Of course, no disrespect is intended, but it must be galling nonetheless for those with disabilities to read articles peppered with lifestyle advice and glib comments. The only time I have spent in a wheelchair is two weeks in Greece after crashing through a plate glass window when I was 12 and slicing through a tendon in my leg. It wasnt a pleasant experience. And I will never forget, on my return home, that feeling of morose despondency as I watched on crutches from the sidelines as my school football team contested the cup semi-final without me. How I craved to be on that pitch. But does that in any way qualify me to write the headline at the top of the page? Of ...
I am a 35-year-old male, who had in 1986 a spinal cord injury at the level of Th12-L1. Fortunately there was just a period of few days, when I had a total paraplegia, after which I started to move my legs more and more. At present I walk with a crutch, but there are many things which do not go well. Among them the major problems are the bladder, which I do not feel at all and the pain along my left leg. Whereas I feel quite normally the right, I do not have a good perception of some areas of the left leg; the sensitivity lacks on the back side and down below the knee. Since the injury I have strong pain along this leg, it has increased and spread over the past years. Then I had learned that there is a great psychological component in this matter, I can live better when I do not care about pain. Sometimes it begins when the weather is changing, other times it is due to a wrong position of sitting (bad circulation), or when I get angry! A good thing is that the frequency of hard pain problems is ...
According to NDCC 57-02-08 (20), any permanently and totally disabled person who is permanently confined to use of a wheelchair, or, if that person is deceased, the unmarried surviving spouse of a permanently and totally disabled person is eligible for the wheelchair exemption. If the spouse of a permanently and totally disabled person owns the homestead or if it is jointly owned by them, the same reduction in assessed valuation applies as long as both reside thereon.. The provisions of this subdivision do not reduce the liability for special assessments levied upon the homestead. The phrase permanently confined to use of a wheelchair means that the person cannot walk with the assistance of crutches or any other device and will never be able to do so and that physician selected by the local governing board has so certified. The maximum benefit may not exceed $4,500 taxable value, because a homestead is limited to $100,000 market value (see NDCC 47-18-01). First-times filers for this exemption ...

Those words strike terror into many -parents hearts. There is hardly a father or a mother anywhere in the civilized world who hasnt at sorne time or other felt the sudden pang* of dread-dread that those most dear will suddenly be stricken helpless. -. This is natural. Poliomyelitis is a dramatic disease, jit strikes swiftly. Its ravages are symptomized by crutches, braces, wheel chairs and iron lungs. And most of its victims are children..

Even in an epidemic area, only one to three children of every thousand ...

Most hip replacement surgeries take between one to two hours and patients spend one to two nights in the hospital following surgery. Youll spend a great deal of time exercising your new joint. The proper use of pain relievers before, during, and after your surgery is an extremely important aspect of your treatment. The goals of postoperative pain management are to minimize pain and stress, and to enable you to participate fully in physical therapy. Most patients have very little pain after hip replacement surgery. Your weight-bearing status will be determined by your surgeon, but most patients will be encouraged to bear full weight on their hip as soon as they can tolerate it. Patients typically start with a walker or crutches, and then progress to a cane.. ...
Image Credit. It is a fact that we are an aging population. Thanks to scientific advancements in medicine, doctors can keep us alive longer. It is conceivable that our children will have an expected lifespan of over one hundred years as the norm. Living longer though will lead to more people suffering with age related problems, as they do today.. Many of us cant get around as we used to. Maybe illness such as arthritis or just old age are to blame. Sometimes we need a little help to maintain our independence and dignity. Lets take a look at a few simple ways that can make your life just that little bit easier on a daily basis.. Mobility. Often, one the first effects of aging or disability is increased difficulty when getting about. Sometimes you may manage with a walking stick or crutches but often a wheelchair is needed.

Hi tam! I broke my tibia & fibula snowboarding exactly one month ago. Had emergency surgery the same night to insert an IM rod and screws in my tibia. I am still no weight bearing, using crutches to get around. They told me 6-8 weeks post op before I can start trying to walk. Im also an active person normally and am getting pretty stir crazy (its my right leg, so I cant even drive myself). The first two weeks were definitely the most painful for me. Now I have relatively no pain- just discomfort. The worst part now is being dependent on my boyfriend to drive me everywhere and carry things for me. The emotional strain is hard. Not sure if you had surgery or not, but if youre two weeks out Id say the worst physical pain is probably over! ...
There is no cure for the hereditary ataxias. And, there is no medicine to treat the specific symptom of ataxia.. If ataxia is due to a stroke, a low vitamin level, or exposure to a toxic drug or chemical, then treatment is aimed at treating those specific conditions.. The treatment for the lack of coordination or imbalance mostly involves the use of adaptive devices to allow the person to maintain as much independence as possible. These devices may include a cane, crutches, a walker, or a wheelchair. Physical therapy, speech therapy, and medicines to help symptoms, such as tremor, stiffness, depression, spasticity, and sleep disorders may also help.. Research is being done on cerebellar and spinocerebellar degeneration, including work aimed at finding the cause(s) of ataxias and ways to treat, cure, and ultimately prevent them.. ...
Copycense points us to a NY Times piece about how pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly is facing some tough times ahead. Why? Because the patents on the drugs that make up most of its revenue are all set to expire soon, and their pipeline of newly patented drugs is pretty far behind. Of course, what this highlights is the folly of relying on patents as your business model. The patents become a crutch, and youre unable to build a real business doing anything other than coming up with new patentable drugs. It takes the focus away from building a real business around making people healthy, to one thats focused on coming up with stuff we can sell that can be patented ...

Things are hectic for everyone right now and Im no exception. I have fallen back on my blogging to work on Christmas projects. Today I decided to go to an MS meeting, not something I have done in a very long time. I was invited by a friend from the CCSVI Locator group who lives close by. We had never met in person and communicated only a few times on the internet . I didnt know what to expect or how I would be received. My plan was to sit, listen and speak only if spoken to. Except for the person who extended the invitation, I was the only person who had the CCSVI angioplasty procedure. A year ago, I would have felt right at ease with a group of people who were using wheelchairs, walkers, canes and crutches. Now I felt out of place. Rick came with me and we sat down out of the way. It was awkward for about two minutes, then everyone began to welcome us and introduce themselves. My friend Roy and his wife came in right before the meeting was to start, and of course I didnt know him from Adam, ...

The initial fracture occurred (get ready for this one) after kicking myself repeatedly in my sleep during a nightmare, I kicked myself until I bled, must have hurt the sesamoid or joint somehow but never imagined anything serious, then proceeded to walk on it in heels for 2 weeks until one day I woke up and could not even stand on it. That is when I went in for x-rays. The first doctor had me walking on a flat surgical boot and soft cast for a few weeks with worsening pain and swelling day by day, until I found your blog and put myself in a cam boot with sesamoid cutout and went minimal weight-bearing on crutches, doing contrast baths daily and soft massaging the area with arnica cream. It was after those 3 weeks that the swelling went away completely and I was totally pain-free, enough to begin to wean onto the sneaker with the cutout, which Ive been on for months ever since. Even for the shower, I wear a water shoe with a sesamoid cut-out. Recently, the two times Ive tried taking slow steps ...
