Painful demo

Today I had 4 tutorials on the musculoskeletal system
There were 5 patients for us to interview
One of them was having rheumatoid arthritis
She had several painful and swollen joints in her hands
In order to show the limited range of movements of the
the doc. tried to flex and extend the fingers of the patient
For some of the swollen joints
I could see that the patient's facial expression showed she
was in pain
The doc just wanna to make sure that all of us can
see "that expression",
he again and again bended the fingers of that patient
How poor she was!
And plz be reminded that we were split into 4 tutorial
Therefore that demo was performed for 4 times......
