1,986 Possible Causes for Circumduction Gait, Joint Contracture, Limping Gait

  • Hemiplegia

    Physical therapy is vital and may include daily living activities to keep the muscles stimulated and prevent joint contractures.[] With mild hemiparesis, loss of normal arm swing and slight circumduction may be the only abnormalities.[] Treatment of spasticity and joint contractures.[]

  • Leg Length Inequality

    Confounding variables reported by literature are: pelvical asymmetry, incorrect positioning of feet, obesity, joint contractures, scoliosis and inaccurate measurement.[] See Gait analysis. leg length discrepancy difference in the true length of one leg compared to the other.[] (limp) and/or lumbar scoliosis & lower back pain Possible spinal anatomical changes for long-standing conditions Vertebral body wedging, increased spurring Increased disc[]

  • Stroke

    […] disuse of the limb with the use of splints or other tools to stabilize the joint.[] After full range has been achieved by the therapist, the limb should be positioned in the lengthened positions to prevent against further contractures, skin breakdown, and[]

  • Osteoarthritis of the Knee

    The goal of osteoarthritis treatment is to reduce pain and muscle spasms, improve limb function, prevent joint contractures and train patients to function in everyday life[] contractures, when all conservative methods are exhausted.[] Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging of the diseased joint is of great significance [3, 4].[]

  • Polyarticular Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis

    Without appropriate and early aggressive treatment, JIA may result in significant morbidity, such as leg-length discrepancy, joint contractures, permanent joint destruction[] In contrast, McGhee et al 10 showed that the presence of joint swelling and gait disturbance/limp were highly predictive in identifying children with JIA.[] Surgical Surgical intervention such as joint replacement or synovectomy may be required. Complications Joint deformities: Knee flexure contractures.[]

  • Osteomyelitis

    . • Muscles are scarred and cause contractures of the adjacent joints. 13.[] Changes in gait (walking pattern that is a painful, yielding a limp) or unwillingness to bear weight in children.[] […] tissues around the joint. • Sinus tract malignancy – rare complication (squamous cell carcinoma) • Muscle contracture. • Epithelioma. • Amyloidosis.[]

  • Calcaneus Fracture

    […] motion at ankle/foot joints - Minimize loss of function and cardiovascular endurance b.[] gait.[] Goals: - Control remaining or residual edema and pain - Prevent re-injury or complication of fracture by progressing weight-bearing safely - Prevent contracture and regain[]

  • Pyogenic Arthritis of the Sacroiliac Joint

    Once the infection is under control, immediate joint mobilisation will promote healing of the articular cartilage and prevent contractures.[] As the infection progresses, contractures and muscular atrophy may result.[] Treatment of infected prosthetic joints [ 8, 9 ] The prosthetic joints to get infected most commonly are the elbow, shoulder and ankle joints, followed by hips and knees.[]

  • Septic Arthritis

    Postoperative physiotherapy and mobilisation of the joint is necessary, while splinting prevents contractures.[] Once the infection is under control, immediate joint mobilisation will promote healing of the articular cartilage and prevent contractures.[] contractures.[]

  • Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis

    This may cause a loss of hip motion, flexion contracture, and pain.[] In fact, most patients with SCFE are teenagers with knee or hip pain who subsequently exhibit an intermittent limping gait.[] […] vii)Shortening viii)Thigh or calf atrophy. ix) Hip flexion contracture -Chondrolysis.[]
