Costochondritis is an inflammation of the costochondral joint, the articular cartilage that joins the ribs to the sternum. Brandy Wilson painted an amazing piece of artwork to give a visual representation of costochondritis. She paints a piece of healthy cartilage and unhealthy cartilage to compare the difference between the two. The description of the project describes costochondritis, what it is, and how the condition develops. The condition develops when the costochondral joint becomes inflamed and the chest pain can range from mild to severe. Mild pain will cause tenderness when palpated while severe chest pain causes tenderness and sharp pains when interference with physical activities, this is most commonly found in patients between the ages of 20 and 40. The painting shows a rib cage and has two visual representations of healthy cartilage and unhealthy cartilage. The painting was a good visual that showed the difference between unhealthy cartilage and healthy cartilage clearly. Brandy’s essay was well put together, she explains what costochondritis is and how it develops. Her writing had a great flow and explains everything clearly on costochondritis, how it is inflamed articular cartilage that joins the ribs to the sternum. Her artwork carefully shows the difference between cartilage that is healthy and cartilage that is unhealthy. I think this project was an interesting way to show the difference between cartilage that is healthy and cartilage that is unhealthy in the cartilage that joins the ribs to the sternum. Her piece of artwork does a great job of showing the viewer what costochondritis is.
