Tendon

1. A 26-year-old male football player is referred to you after surgery for a ruptured (third-degree strain) left biceps tendon at its insertion. His cast has been removed, and you have been asked to restore the patient to normal function. Describe your assessment plan for this patient.

2. Parents bring their 4-year-old daughter in to see you. They state that about 2 hours previously they were out shopping, and the mother was holding the little girl’s arm. The little girl tripped, and the mother “yanked” her up as she fell. The little girl started to cry and would not move her elbow. Describe your assessment plan for this patient (radial head dislocation versus ligamentous sprain).
