18 Possible Causes for Grip Strength Decreased, Thenar Muscle Atrophy

  • 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] At the six-month follow-up examination, the patient experienced relief from numbness and improvement in thenar muscle atrophy was noted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There was a significant (t10 5.45, P 0.001) 37% decrease in grip strength immediately following surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cervical Spondylosis

  • 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] […] groups, especially in the extremities poor or pathologic tandem gait atrophy of the hand’s thenar prominence (the fleshy fat pad just superior to the thumb on the ventral[americannursetoday.com] 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]

  • Cervical Herniated Disc

    Cervical herniated disc results in posterior or posterolateral protrusion of the intervertebral disc, most commonly in the C6-C7 segments of the cervical spine. Causes include spinal degeneration and sometimes trauma. Patients may be asymptomatic, but nerve root compression can give rise to symptoms such as pain,[…][symptoma.com]

  • Brachial Plexus Neuropathy

    Abstract Electromyographic data were analyzed in a retrospective study of 16 patients with idiopathic brachial plexus neuropathy (BPN) and 15 patients with secondary BPN. In both groups, abnormalities on sensory and musculocutaneous motor conduction studies and lack of paraspinal fibrillation potentials on needle[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Median Neuropathy

    As most of the intrinsic hand muscles are ulnar innervated, weakness of these muscles leads to loss of dexterity and to decreased grip and pinch strength.[casemed.case.edu] muscle atrophy may occur.[fpnotebook.com] Adequate grip and elbow strength must be achieved before returning to pre-operative activity.

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Splints can decrease pain and improve the strength of one's grip, but it may decrease hand movement.[doi.org] The skin on the hands showed rashes, thickening, desquamation and chapping, with both thenar muscles atrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

    The forearms may become mildly atrophic with decrease in grip strength; the small muscles of the hands are spared.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In addition, all patients had thin legs and thenar muscle atrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In hands, thenar muscle atrophy was observed in all 24 carefully assessed patients and a high proportion of cases reported difficulty grasping a pencil or opening jars.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Distal Myopathy Type 3

    The forearms may become mildly atrophic with decrease in grip strength; the small muscles of the hands are spared.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
