provide an original response to the discussions, just four to five sentences each discussions questions.
1- Kinesio tape – what’s up with that? – Kinesiology tape has been around for more than 4 decades, but its use has grown since the 2008 Beijing Olympics, perhaps thanks to its application to American beach volleyball athletes utilizing the tape. What do the several manufacturers of this tape claim are the benefits of the tape? How strong is the evidence to support these claims?
2- Concussion in sport – Concussions have become a topic of great interest in recent years, especially in the context of amateur and professional sports. Do some research so that you can discuss the following:
What exactly IS a concussion? What are the symptoms of a concussion?
What are the short- and long-term health concerns for a patient who has suffered a concussion?
Do the symptoms or effects vary with the age of the patient (children vs. adolescents vs. adults)?
Do some sports have higher incidence rates of concussion in participants?
Finally, given your informed opinion, what advice would you give a parent who was concerned about their daughter or son playing popular American sports like football, soccer, or hockey?
3- Hearing loss – There are two general types of hearing loss: sensory neural and obstructive (e.g., ear-wax build up). What simple clinical tests can be done to differentiate between these types? Furthermore, how can the results be explained anatomically and physiologically?
And After that I need you to write reflection on this discussions statement.
1- I am an athletic training student and we use tapes like this on our athletes. The form of tape that is most common is KT Tape. On their website they claim that their tape lifts the skin, allowing greater movement of fluid throughout the body. Its meant to relieve pain while supporting muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Another form of tape is Kinesio Tape, and they claim that it supports muscles and rehabilitation. The evidence behind the taping is sort of lacking. There is no scientific proof to it actually working. It differs by case and peoples opinion.
2- A muscular dystrophy is a group of diseases that cause progressive weakness and loss of muscle mass. In muscular dystrophy, abnormal genes (mutations) interfere with the production of proteins needed to form healthy muscle, There are many different kinds of muscular dystrophy. Symptoms of the most common variety begin in childhood, mostly in boys. Other types don’t surface until adulthood, There’s no cure for muscular dystrophy. But medications and therapy can help manage symptoms and slow the course of the disease, Symptoms
The main sign of muscular dystrophy is progressive muscle weakness Specific signs and symptoms begin at different ages and in different muscle groups, depending on the type of muscular dystrophy, Duchenne type muscular dystrophy This is the most common form of muscular dystrophy. Although girls can be carriers and mildly affected, it’s much more common in boys About one-third of boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) don’t have a family history of the disease, possibly because the gene involved may be subject to sudden abnormal change (spontaneous mutation) Signs and symptoms typically appear in early childhood and may include:
Frequent falls Difficulty rising from a lying or sitting up position
Trouble running and jumping, Waddling gait, Walking on the toes
Large calf muscles, Muscle pain, and stiffness, Learning disabilities
Becker muscular dystrophy, Signs and symptoms are similar to those of Duchenne muscular dystrophy but tend to be milder and progress more slowly. Symptoms generally begin in the teens but may not occur until the mid-20s or even later.
