19 Possible Causes for Elbow Dimples, Joint Range of Motion Limitation

  • Shoulder Impingement Syndrome

    Dimpling of the skin below he acromion (the sulcus sign) indicates inferior humeral translation. This indicates instability of the shoulder joint.[boneandspine.com] RESULTS: The results demonstrated that the degree of limitation of external rotation, which considerably affects the other motion ranges, is the most important index of shoulder[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Range-of-motion exercises may include pendulum exercises and symptom-limited, active-assisted range-of-motion exercises.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita

    Pterygia (these are winglike triangular membranes occurring typically in the neck, knees, elbows, ankles or fingers).[patient.info] In AMC, the range of motion of the joints in the arms and legs is usually limited or fixed.[rxlist.com] In AMC the range of motion of the joints in the arms and legs is usually limited or fixed.[medicinenet.com]

  • Arthrocentesis

    A dimple is palpated dorsally over the radiocarpal joint, which serves as the entry point for the needle.[boneandspine.com] , and limited range of motion in maximal incisal opening, excursion, and/or protrusion Alterations of occlusion Joint noises associated with pain Contraindications Presence[pocketdentistry.com] When a joint causes pain, swells, is red, or has limited range of motion, a doctor may recommend using a needle and syringe to remove fluid from the joint.[arthritis-health.com]

  • Arthrogryposis due to Muscular Dystrophy

    Pterygia (these are winglike triangular membranes occurring typically in the neck, knees, elbows, ankles or fingers).[patient.info] Joint contractures which cause the limited range of motion develop before birth (prenatally) and are evident at birth (congenitally).[muscle.ca] In AMC, the range of motion of the joints in the arms and legs is usually limited or fixed.[medicinenet.com]

  • Eosinophilic Fasciitis

    In patients with insidious onset or without treatment, skin changes can evolve from edema to induration and peau d' orange dimpling.[medpagetoday.com] Limited range of motion of wrist and/or ankle joints indicates sensitively distal muscle dysfunction caused by fasciitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Those with arthritis, atrophy of muscle, scarring limiting joint range of motion (contracture), and shortening of limb length tend to do worse.[rxlist.com]

  • Neurogenic Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita

    ,flexed and ulnarly deviated wrist AMC associated characteristics -Common to both type: clubfeet, flexed, and ulnarly deviated wrists, IR shoulders -Scoliosis Dimpling of[quizlet.com] Children with AMC have a range of motion that is very limited or even fixed, especially in their arms and legs. AMC affects only 1 in 3000 babies born.[web.archive.org] Pterygia (these are winglike triangular membranes occurring typically in the neck, knees, elbows, ankles or fingers).[patient.info]

  • Melorheostosis

    However at the age of 5 weeks her mother noticed dimpling of the skin on her right thigh.[doi.org] Joint swelling, muscle contractures, and tendon and ligament shortening, causing pain and limited range of motion, can be encountered. 1 The diagnosis is usually established[journals.lww.com] As the months and years passed she was noted to have increasing right elbow, hip and knee flexion which progressed unrelentingly.[doi.org]

  • Calcified Aponeurotic Fibroma

    The overlying skin was unremarkable and nonadherent without dimpling. Mild limitation of movement in the right elbow joint was noted.[yumpu.com] The patient complained of painless swelling and mild limitation of the range of motion of the elbow joint.[jpatholtm.org] The physical examination showed a firm mass with equivocal swelling and tenderness, and the mass measured 2 2 cm on the anteromedial aspect of the right elbow.[yumpu.com]

  • Hemimelia

    Figure 1 b: dorsal view of the same showing some amount of elbow hypoplasia clinically by lack of dimpling and flexion at the cubital fossa region, extremely short forearm[ijpoonline.com] The ankle joint function with FH may range from: normal range of motion, stable, no valgus instability, and no deformity; to, limited arc of motion, unstable with valgus instability[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The primary determinant of the ankle range of motion is related to the dysplasia of the ankle joint.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
