Biopsy specimens were taken from the affected first dorsal interosseous muscle in 29 women with painful chronic overuse syndrome and from 8 volunteer controls. Structural differences in samples from the women with overuse syndrome included increased type 1 fibres with type grouping, decreased type 2 fibres, type 2 fibre hypertrophy, increased internal(More)

A series of 379 musicians with painful overuse syndrome ("RSI") were examined and studied. The commonly used diagnosis for the condition of "tenosynovitis" or "tendinitis" could not be substantiated as it appeared to be a distinct clinical entity rather than a collection of unrelated disorders. The patients in this series showed muscular and joint capsule(More)
BACKGROUND A variety of teaching and learning techniques intended to engage students in reflection are either in use or are being developed in medical and dental education. In line with evidence-based practice in education, research is needed to appraise the utility and effectiveness of these techniques, so that they may be used with confidence. AIM To(More)
CONTEXT This study reports the first part of a funded project to develop a tool to improve and record learning, known as a Progress File. A Progress File typically contains an element of reflection and a means of recording achievement. AIM The aim of the study was to collect and understand the attitudes and experiences of students and tutors with regard(More)

Overuse (injury) syndrome, common in musicians, is characterised by persisting pain and tenderness in the muscles and joint ligaments of the upper limb due to excessive use and in more advanced instances by weakness and loss of response and control in the affected muscle groups. This occurs typically in tertiary music students when their practice load is(More)
BACKGROUND Clinical Skills Centres (CSCs) can ease pressure on clinical skills development and assessment in clinical areas; and provide added value through experiential learning and self-directed learning. Published accounts of innovation in CSCs tell part of this story but little is known about perceptions of students and tutors engaged in day-to-day(More)
