Some things I learnt from PAM1 Summative Assessment

  1. Greenstick fractures usually occur in immature bone (i.e. children)

  2. Pathological fractures are normally a result of cancer and/or osteoporosis etc

  3. When looking for problems with non-contractile elements, you'll get pain on passive, isotonic, active etc just NOT with isometric! Why? Because isometric is straining the soft tissues structures (i.e. muscle) and not stressing the joint!

  4. Remember during gait there is a lot of eccentric muscle activity occuring so don't get stuck in the concentric mind frame!
