Question and answer
A woman takes her daughter to a sports medicine specialist and requests that she determine the percentage of fast and slow fibers in the girl's leg muscles. The parent wants to know if the healthy
girl should try out for soccer or cross-county running. Do you think this is a valid reason to test muscle tissue? Why or why not?
I think its a bad omen for the kid the parents are even thinking of doing this. Any parent taking this THAT seriously is not doing this for the joy and pleasure of their child - as they should be. [ Sports are great and all, but this would be taking it too far. Whether or not the child has good muscles for sports should be secondary to the enjoyment of the activity. The decision to become an
athlete shouldn't be motivated by the fact that the child has good jogging muscles but by whether they take pleasure in playing soccer or doing cross-country running. Most of the more successful athletes in history have usually really loved their sport and it shows in how well they do and how happy they are doing it. ]

A child sustained serious injuries in a recent automobile accident. Injury to the epiphyses of various bones was discovered. Discuss why these injuries are of special concern.
Weegy: According to my research, it will depend on what kind of injury is found. Suspect an epiphyseal injury whenever any patient under 20 has signs of an injury near the end of a long bone, even if it seems only to be a sprain. [ After Salter with kind permission. Some epiphyses are much more often injured than others. Epiphyses are of two kinds: (1) pressure epiphyses at the ends of long bones near joints, and (2) traction apophyses, to which muscles are attached. The cartilage joining epiphyses and apophyses to the shaft of a bone is weak, and is often the site of displacement. Except for an important injury to the medial epicondyle of the humerus, injuries to other apophyses are only a minor nuisance and are not discussed further here. Injuries to pressure epiphyses are much more important. Suspect an epiphyseal injury whenever any patient under 20 has signs of an injury near the end of a long bone, even if it seems only to be a sprain. He may have displaced an epiphysis at the moment of injury after which it returned to its usual place, so a normal X–ray does not exclude a displaced epiphysis. Fortunately, most epiphyseal injuries cause no growth disturbance. But if an epiphyseal plate is injured on one side only, or if it is one of a parallel pair, such as the radius and ulna, progressive angular deformity occurs slowly over several years, and can only be corrected by osteotomy. Salter and Harris have described the following five types of epiphyseal injury each of which needs managing differently, and has a different prognosis. ] (More)
