Morphea & Other Non-communicable Skin Conditions
Dr. Kirk Brumels, Hope College
Profesor Margaret Frens, Hope College
This case study examines a relatively uncommon skin condition entitled morphea that affected the athletic participation of a female collegiate basketball player. The case study will focus on providing information, improving understanding, and detailing identification, diagnostic, and treatment procedures for morphea. In addition, management strategies such as superficial ultrasound, moist hot packs, and myofascial techniques (such as myofascial release, massage, and Graston technique) will be discussed. The condition of morphea will be compared to other non-communicable skin conditions that may also affect athletic participation.
