module 03 lab assignment document a history and physical assessment of the musculoskeletal system

You will perform a history of a musculoskeletal problem that your instructor has provided you or one that you have experienced, and perform an assessment of the musculoskeletal system. You will document your subjective and objective findings, note any abnormal findings, and submit this in a Word document to the drop box provided. Your subjective portion of the documentation should briefly describe your “client”. For example, “This client is a 23-year-old white female complaining of a painful, swollen ankle. States that she stepped ‘funny’ off a step two days ago and thinks she heard a ripping sound. She takes no medications and has no allergies. The client reports pain as 5/10 with sharp twinges when trying to walk, resting and ice decreases pain to 2/10 aching. Pain is primarily in the outer aspect of ankle and foot. Has no prior injury to this area. No significant past medical history.” In terms of your objective findings, remember to only record what you have assessed. Do not make a diagnosis or state the cause of a particular finding.You are not coming to any conclusions within your documentation. When your documentation is complete, you will note any findings that were abnormal.
