Prior to beginning work on this assignment,

Fabiana Wester, 69 years of age, suffered a stroke on the right side of her brain five months ago. She is recovering but still experiencing muscle weakness on the left side of her body and struggling with balance and body movements. Then, eight weeks ago, Fabiana tripped over her dog’s toy basket and fractured her ankle.

Her physician cleared her for light activity as the ankle fracture has healed. As Fabiana’s personal trainer, you meet with her to address some key information, which will help you and your client over the upcoming weeks and months, when training her.

In your PowerPoint presentation,

  • Explain how two features (i.e., muscles, nerves, bones, joints, or other important structures) of the muscular, skeletal, articular, and neural systems are most likely affected by Fabiana’s stroke and ankle fracture. (In total, you will explain eight features—two features per system. Use appropriate terminology and your course text for support at a minimum.)
  • Assess how Fabiana’s recent stroke is impacting the function of her muscular, skeletal, articular, and neural systems. (You must address each system and support your assessment with two scholarly, peer reviewed, or credible sources.)
  • Evaluate three pathologies or concerns, one for the upper extremities, one for the lower extremities, and one for the trunk that Fabiana may be at higher risk for when performing day-to-day activities due to her age, recent stroke, and ankle fracture. (Support your evaluation with two scholarly, peer-reviewed, or credible sources.)

For help with this assignment, use this PowerPoint template. Feel free to design and add visuals to your PowerPoint to enhance your content.

  • Must be at least 13 slides in length, (not including title and references slides) and formatted according to APA Style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center’s How to Make a PowerPoint Presentation
  • Must include a separate title slide with the following:
    • Title of the PowerPoint
    • Student’s name
    • Course name and number
    • Instructor’s name
    • Date submitted
      For further assistance with the formatting and the title page, refer to APA Formatting for Word 2013.
  • Must design the PowerPoint by adding visuals.
  • Must utilize academic voice. See the Academic Voice resource for additional guidance.
  • Must include an introduction and conclusion slide.
  • Must use at least four scholarly, peer-reviewed, or credible sources, in addition to the course text.
    • The Scholarly, Peer-Reviewed, and Other Credible Sources table offers additional guidance on appropriate source types. If you have questions about whether a specific source is appropriate for this assignment, please contact your instructor. Your instructor has the final say about the appropriateness of a specific source for a particular assignment.
    • To assist you in completing the research required for this assignment, view this Ashford University Library Quick ‘n’ Dirtytutorial, which introduces the Ashford University Library and the research process, and provides some library search tips.
  • Must document any information used from sources in APA Style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center’s APA: Citing Within Your Paper
  • Must include a separate references slide that is formatted according to APA Style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. See the APA: Formatting Your References Listresource in the Ashford Writing Center for specifications.

❑Stroke is a significant condition that should be looked at keenly
(Walker 2020).
❑Ankle fracture is another musculoskeletal condition that poses a great
threat to movement.
❑Fabiana having experienced both stroke and ankle fracture, needs
immediate medical attention.
❑Successful medical management is key in helping eliminate the
consequences of the conditions (Walker 2020).
❑The following is an analysis of Fabiana’s condition and the effects on
the body:

How the Muscular System is Affected by a Stroke and/or Ankle
Muscular weakness in the legs
❑With stroke, the muscles of the
legs become weak (Walker
❑The reduced blood supply and
oxygen deficiency causes the
weaknesses observed.

Muscle paralysis due to stroke
❑Muscle paralysis occurs when
the muscle systems are
❑The threat of poor muscle
movement and activity is a great
threat for a patient (Yamamoto et
al., 2019).

How the Skeletal System is Affected by a Stroke and/or Ankle Fracture:
Bone atrophy
❑Reduced oxygen supply to the
bones may result in atrophy
when stroke sets in (Yamamoto
et al., 2019).

Ankle joint fracture
❑With an ankle fracture, the ankle
joint is affected significantly.
❑The ankle joint can be
incapacitated to f...

Just the thing I needed, saved me a lot of time.
