What are some risk factors for musculoskeletal sys?

poor nutrition, lack or excessive exercise, low or high BMI, overuse syndrome, and fall risk


During a gait assessment, what are you assessing the body for?

asymmetry, guarding, and weakness


A person's gait should be?

smooth, symmetrical, strong and w/ equal fxn on both sides


What are the Morse Fall Risk Scores and Interventions?

No Risk- 0-24, Low Risk 25-50 Standard Fall Precaution, High Risk > 51 High Risk Fall Preventions


What are the two type of factors that contribute to Fall Risk?

Extrinsic and Intrinsic Factors


What are some examples of extrinsic factors?

Hazardous activities, time of day, external lighting, clutter, spills, and loose electrical cords


What are some examples of intrinsic factors?

muscle weakness, gait disorders, visual disturbances, visual disturbances, cognitive impairment, dizziness, age

When you inspect joints what do you look for?

symmetry, alignment, edema, deformities, ROM of active & passive joint, decreased ROM


What do you palpate for in joints?

muscle atrophy, edema, decrease ROM, and crepitus of joint w/ ROM


What are the normal ROM for neck?

What are you testing for in the grip strenght test?

Test the intrinsic muscles and joints of hands. Also, muscles of the forearm.


Describe the stance in gait

Stance is when the foot is on the ground and bears weight ( 60% of walking cycle)


Describe the swing in gait

Swing is when the foot moves forward and does not bear weight ( 40% of walking cycle)


How many inches are from heel to heel?

2-4 inches
