  • Myotonic Dystrophy

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    Myasthenia gravis (MG) is a long-term neuromuscular disease that leads to varying degrees of skeletal muscle weakness. The most commonly affected muscles are those of the eyes, face, and swallowing. It can result in double vision, drooping eyelids, trouble talking, and trouble walking. Onset can be sudden. Those[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

    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] There was a significant (t10 5.45, P 0.001) 37% decrease in grip strength immediately following surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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]

Weil Sylvain Lanthier Case Report First Online: 03 September 2013 Abstract Background Spondylotic vertebral artery (VA) compression is a rare cause of vertebrobasilar insufficiency and stroke.

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    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] In a clinical trial for pyrimethamine, an antimalarial drug, SOD1 levels in the CSF decreased along with a trend towards declining Appel ALS scores, a measure of disease progression[doi.org]

  • 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]

  • Cervical Myelopathy

    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] Lose fine fingertip and grip strength. 19.[slideshare.net]
