  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Babinski's sign positive) Flexor ( normal; Babinski's sign negative) Extraneous muscle activity No fasciculations/fibrillations Fasciculations and fibrillations amyotrophic lateral[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Prior animal studies have shown that silencing SOD1 led to preservation of grip strength and a delay in the onset of motor function deficits [ 125, 126 ].[doi.org] […] neurone lesion Lower motor neurone lesion Paralysis Spastic-type contracture Flaccid-type contractures may develop Tendon reflexes Exaggerated; hyperreflexia Reduced/absent; hyporeflexia[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    , hyperreflexia and atrophy in later stages of disease, but fasciculations are absent.[symptoma.com] In the setting of LMN damage, hyporeflexia, atrophy, decreased muscle tone and fasciculations develop, while diseases that affect UMNs cause spasticity, increased muscle tone[symptoma.com]

  • Cervical Myelopathy

    Nerve root compression commonly causes early radicular pain; later, there may be weakness, hyporeflexia, and muscle atrophy.[merckmanuals.com] Grip strength demonstrated a 465% increase on the right upper extremity and a 25% increase on the left upper extremity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Loss of motor strength, sensory changes, wasting of the intrinsic muscles of the hand, and spasticity may dramatically decrease upper extremity function and the condition[boneandspine.com]

    […] the diagnosis is made later). 13 The sudden onset of myelopathy secondary to spinal metastasis is a true neurologic emergency.[aafp.org] The neurologic examination usually reveals symmetric weakness with either flaccidity and hyporeflexia (if the diagnosis is made early) or spasticity and hyperreflexia (if[aafp.org]

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

    There was a significant (t10 5.45, P 0.001) 37% decrease in grip strength immediately following surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Post-operatively the patient is likely to experience scar tenderness and decreased grip strength for a few months and may require several weeks off work.[apps.nhslothian.scot] As symptoms worsen, people might feel tingling during the day, and decreased grip strength may make it difficult to form a fist, grasp small objects, or perform other manual[web.archive.org]

  • De Quervain Tenosynovitis

    Impairments include pain over the first compartment of the wrist, decreased wrist and finger ROM and joint mobility, decreased grip strength, and difficulty grasping objects[thestudentphysicaltherapist.com] Patients typically report painful abduction of the thumb and decreased grip strength. [4] The most common cause is chronic overuse.[physio-pedia.com] […] in grip strength. 1 - 4 Characteristics of de Quervain tenosynovitis are shown in Figure 1.[jaoa.org]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Splints can decrease pain and improve the strength of one's grip, but it may decrease hand movement.[doi.org] Studies also showed that laser therapy worked just as well as 'placebo' laser therapy to improve range of motion, function, swelling and grip strength.[doi.org] It also revealed an indication of efficacy for splinting on pain and grip strength. Provision of splints may have a decrease of dexterity as a side effect.[doi.org]

  • Dupuytren Contracture

    The main function of the palmar fascia is to increase grip strength; thus, over time, Dupuytren's contracture decreases a person's ability to hold objects.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Cervical Spondylosis

    Somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) following median, ulnar and tibial nerve stimulation were recorded from sites over the shoulders, neck and scalp in 34 patients with cervical spondylosis. Twenty control subjects were matched for sex and age. Detailed clinical and radiological data were assembled, with particular[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tennis Elbow

    RESULTS: Four weeks after the treatment, the Botox group had smaller decrease in pain (P 0.02) but greater decrease in grip strength (P 0.01).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient may also feel a decrease in grip strength and feel pain in when grasping or picking up objects.[firstaid4sport.co.uk] Also reports are emerging that decreasing grip strength and relaxing forearm muscles in the follow-through phase of the back- hand stroke can help prevent “Tennis Elbow” in[sportssurgeryclinic.com]
