DISCUSSION:
CASE 2: ANKLE PAIN
A 46-year-old female reports pain in both of her ankles, but
she is more concerned about her right ankle. She was playing soccer over the
weekend and heard a “pop.” She is able to bear weight, but it is
uncomfortable. In determining the cause of the ankle pain, based on your
knowledge of anatomy, what foot structures are likely involved? What other
symptoms need to be explored? What are your differential diagnoses for ankle
pain? What physical examination will you perform? What special maneuvers will
you perform? Should you apply the Ottawa ankle rules to determine if you need
additional testing?
Post an episodic/focused note about the patient in the case
study to which you were assigned using the episodic/focused note template
provided. Provide evidence from the literature to
support diagnostic tests that would be appropriate for each case. List five
different possible conditions for the patient’s differential diagnosis, and
justify why you selected each. PLEASE USE 3-4 APA RERENCES
