25 Possible Causes for Joint Crepitation, Progressive Contractures

  • Osteoarthritis

    Another characteristic symptom of the disease is the progressive incapacity of the joint to function, leading – in the long run – to loss of mobility.[oafifoundation.com] The exam may show: Joint movement that causes a crackling (grating) sound, called crepitation Joint swelling (bones around the joints may feel larger than normal) Limited[medlineplus.gov] Sounds: The sounds you can hear are cracking, scraping and sounds from crepitation. They're generated by mobilization of the joint.[physio-pedia.com]

  • Polyarthritis

    The characteristic rapid progression of palmar contracture is a key finding that suggests the potential existence of a malignancy. [Indexed for MEDLINE] Free full text[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Frequent complaints are: Tenderness Arthralgia Joint swelling Joint effusion Joint deformity Stiffness Reduced motion range Crepitation Affected joints may be in close proximity[symptoma.com] […] to flexion contracture of the hands.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Arthritis

    Flexion contractures may require intensive exercise, casting, or immobilization (eg, splinting) in progressively more stretched-open positions.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Internal Joint Prosthesis Broken

    As one progresses distally to the midthigh level, it is increasingly difficult to compensate prosthetically for a hip flexion contracture.[oandplibrary.org] At the short transfemoral level, flexion contracture of up to 25 degrees may be accommodated by prosthetic alignment, but hip extensor power, needed for good prosthetic knee[oandplibrary.org]

  • Hemophilia

    This disease can lead to further symptoms such as: • progressive decreased motion • flexion contractures • muscle atrophy [1] The second most common presentation of hemophilia[physio-pedia.com]

  • Osteochondral Loose Body

    Progressive joint contracture, unresolved symptoms after conservative treatment, and fixed contracture of more than 10 with elbow pain are common indications for surgical[emedicine.medscape.com] […] elicits crepitation during knee flexion and extension; - in addition, affected femroal condyle is tender on palpation; - w/ medial condylar lesion, pts may walk w/ the leg[wheelessonline.com] Almost every person with knee pain has some type of “popping” or crunching (also called crepitation) noise in these joints.[caringmedical.com]

  • Osteoarthritis of the Knee

    , knee ROM, medial BMLs, medial subchondral bone cysts and medial trabecular bone texture are associated with the cOA progression.[arthritis-research.biomedcentral.com] Decrease in muscle power Instability of the joint Crepitations This type of OA can be caused by obesity, trauma, inflammatory or genetically [4] X-ray: The basic X-ray is[physio-pedia.com] There is limited evidence that pain coping subscales worrying, hoping and catastrophizing, knee injury, knee surgery, bisphosphonate usage, painful knee flexion, flexion contracture[arthritis-research.biomedcentral.com]

  • Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Destructive surface changes contribute to pain and loss of motion, while ongoing growth disturbances and contractures produce further deformity (Figure 1).[healio.com] Bilateral crepitations, malocclusion, weakness of the mastication muscles were present. Other joints and eye examination was normal.[ard.bmj.com] […] changed In some cases, symptoms of juvenile arthritis are mild and do not progress to more severe joint disease and deformities.[orthoinfo.aaos.org]

  • Hallux Rigidus

    , arthrofibrosis, and progressive DJD, make the results of these procedures unpredictable.[emedicine.com] The metatarsal phalangeal joint (big toe joint) is swollen, both dorsally and medially. On palpation and range of motion crepitation of the joint can be detected.[cdafootankle.com] Often, there is crepitation with joint mobilization and pain associated with any movement of the first MTP joint.[lermagazine.com]

  • Osteochondritis Dissecans

    Progressive joint contracture, unresolved symptoms after conservative treatment, and fixed contracture of more than 10 with elbow pain are common indications for surgical[emedicine.com] Both radiocapitellar and ulnohumeral joint instability was present, but with full range of motion. No crepitation was noted.[journalofprolotherapy.com]
