|14/12/18||Marjon sports clinic||1||Client C/O tight quadriceps after playing netball 4/7 for 3/52.|
|Reflective Summary||Areas for further Improvement plus action plan|
|Checked contraindications, ROM and palpated the client’s quadriceps.
Client had no problem walking; however they had decreased ROM in knee flexion & the left had less ROM than the right.
I placed a bolster under the knee and performed STM on the quadriceps. I then lengthened the quadriceps muscles using RI as the client reported pain of 7/10 during knee flex, so I avoided the pain by using RI.
Retested ROM and noticed a big improvement in ROM.
I advised the client to keep stretching their quadriceps to gradually lengthen the muscle back to normal ROM.
|Since this session, I have had a lecture on postural and gait analysis which now allows me to do a more thorough assessment of the client’s injury. I will incorporate this into my initial assessment in future.|
|Returning to reflections at a later date|
|Practice explaining the process and position for MET to clients concisely so that they understand clearly what I mean.
Talk to client about what I have found during palpation.
