STYC01 Clinical Reflection 07/01/2019

This session took place in the Marjon Sports Therapy Clinic for 30 minutes. The client  had pain in their acromion-clavicular joint when lifting.

Reflective Summary

I made the work place look professional, put down coach roll and washed my hands. Firstly, I observed and palpated around the acrominon-clavicular joint, including the acromion process, the clavicle, the humerus, the bicipital groove, and the coracoid process. It was apparent that there was pain in their acromion-clavicular joint. The joint felt warm, as well as the client experiencing pain. Following this, I tested the clients range of movement of the shoulder including flexion, extension, adduction, abduction, elevation, depression, protraction and retraction. Whilst the clients range of movement was ok, they experienced some pain during all of the movements. Following this, rigid taped the acromion-clavicular joint, ensuring there was no wrinkles in the tape, and using the underlayer.

Areas for Improvement 

I found myself at awkward angles trying to tape the clients shoulder.

What can I do next?

  1. Adjust bed height to suit the needs of what I am doing.
