OER - Pathomechanics, Conditions & Diseases


CASE STUDY THREE INTRODUCTION Pathomechanics is a large part of Pedorthics and what we do every day. This workbook will aid you in taking the concepts you have already learned, making appropriate connections between concepts and applying them in a clinical setting. We always need to look at the patient as a whole. Throughout your assessment you can use the charts contained in this workbook as a guide to ensure you have thoroughly covered every aspect of pathomechanics and what that means for your patient. This workbook is also an excellent guide for you to use throughout your placement or apprenticeship, with your supervisor, to promote an interactive, effective learning experience. If there are areas where you need clarity you are urged to reach out to your supervisor and work through any areas of concern or confusion. You may want to seek out several opinions to broaden your learning experience. We are assuming you have a certain level of previous knowledge, so the charts included in this unit obviously will not cover every detail of pathomechanics. The charts can be used in several ways and can be combined to provide more information for complex cases. As you’re learning and honing your assessment and clinical skills you may need help filling in the blanks to be able to effectively build a treatment plan. The case studies are designed to help you apply your knowledge to different cases with varying complexities. This workbook provides some guidelines to help you as you develop your treatment goals and designs. KEY CONCEPTS Link deformities to potential conditions, what you may see during your biomechanical assessment and gait analysis, potential treatment options. You have identified abnormal motions during each phase of gait, now look at the potential compensations you may find during your assessment, then link possible treatment to those findings. Classify patients into groups with common disorders or diseases. During your assessment choose the chart that is most fitting for your patient (ie., adult or athlete) and use it to help you through your assessment to determine a treatment plan. Think about how you would treat a patient who has plantar fasciitis, now think about how you would treat this same person if they are also diabetic. Do you change anything? Do everything the same as before? This is how we can treat a patient as a whole! 4 Study Guide Workbook 2
