NURS 6501 Module 5 Assignment Case Study Analysis
Week 8: Concepts of Neurological and Musculoskeletal Disorders – Part 2
As homeowners know all too well, there is a continuous need for maintenance and repair. Some efforts are precautionary in nature, while others are the result of issues that surface over time.
Similarly, musculoskeletal disorders can develop over time. For some disorders, such as osteoporosis, precautionary treatments are a potential option. But much like issues that surface in a home over time, many musculoskeletal issues can be very serious concerns, and they can have a significant impact on patients’ lives.
This week, you continue to examine fundamental concepts of neurological and musculoskeletal disorders. You explore common disorders that impact these

systems and you apply the key terms and concepts that help communicate the pathophysiological nature of these issues to patients.
Learning Objectives
Students will:
Analyze processes related to neurological and musculoskeletal disorders
Identify racial/ethnic variables that may impact physiological functioning
Evaluate the impact of patient characteristics on disorders and altered physiology

Module 5 Assignment: Case Study Analysis
An understanding of the neurological and musculoskeletal systems is a critically important component of disease and disorder diagnosis and treatment. This importance is magnified by the impact that that these two systems can have on each other. A variety of factors and circumstances affecting the emergence and severity of issues in one system can also have a role in the performance of the other.
Effective analysis often requires an understanding that goes beyond these systems and their mutual impact. For example, patient characteristics such as, racial and ethnic variables can play a role.
Assignment: Case Study Analysis
The symptoms presented in the patient could be influenced by significant changes in the physiological organs and their functions. The body system is made of various organs systems working together. Besides, hemeostasis is the process through which the body ensures that there is balance in the various chemical constituents in the body. The current study focuses on exploring the symptom presentation in the selected patient and explore the possible factors influences the symptoms. The case involves a patient experiencing severe right sided headache with a pain scale of 10/10. The headache had lasted for 2 to 3 days. Furthermore, the patient experiences nausea and vomited three times in last 3 hours. Based on this, the patient is most likely to be having migraine. The current study outlines the neurological and musculoskeletal processes influencing the symptoms development and how they vary based on ethnicity and race.
Neurological and Musculoskeletal Pathophysiology
The condition is caused by the projection in the trigeminovascular systems which results in the disruption in the information transmission from the pericarnial muscle and the skin (Andreou & Edvinsson, 2019). The key symptoms associated with the physiological alteration include fatigue, nausea and yarning among others (McCance & Huether, 2019). The key neurological organs involved in the pathology include pseudounipolar trigeminal nerves. Similarly, the inflammatory reactions in the brain could also be linked to the migraine symptoms. The projections in the trigeminovascular system causes the symptoms related to what the patient experienced. The symptoms include loss of appetite, yarning, fatigue and nausea. The trigeminovascular system transmits the nociceptive information to the brains. Similarly, the collect information from the pericranial muscles and the skins and relay them to the brain (McCance & Huether, 2019).
Ethnic/Racial Variables
The risk and prevalence of migraine vary from one ethnic group to another. The risk for migraine is high among the whites compared to the Asian and African American populations. The variations in the risk patterns are linked to the anthropometric characteristics. Also, the risk for osteomyelitis can also be used to explain the variation (Goadsby et al., 2017).
Interacting Factors
The key interacting factors in the disease progress include age, genetic and possible underlying health conditions. Also, patients’ behavioural patterns could also influence the progress and the outcomes of the disease. For example, patients who fail to seek medical interventions in time are likely to have poor prognosis. Also, stress could worsen the headache and other symptoms associated with migraine disease (Kowalska et al., 2018). . People with stress could also have exacerbated migraine symptoms. The other factors also include age and dietary composition. Therefore, it is important to explore the factors likely to increase the prevalence of migraine in a population group and address them in time
Conclusion
Finally, the patient in this case presents with migraine, a condition characterized by headache and nausea. Also, the patient developed sensitivity to light. It is important that the patient seek urgent medical help to prevent the condition from worsening. The patient in this case had migraine and this is due to the changes in the communication patterns in the trigeminovascular systems.
