235 Possible Causes for Joint Range of Motion Limitation, Progressive Contractures

  • Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita

    Abstract Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC) is a rare disorder characterized by non-progressive, multiple contractures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In AMC, the range of motion of the joints in the arms and legs is usually limited or fixed.[rxlist.com] Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC) is a heterogeneous symptom complex characterized by non-progressive joint contractures from birth that involve more than one part[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Arthritis

    Flexion contractures may require intensive exercise, casting, or immobilization (eg, splinting) in progressively more stretched-open positions.[merckmanuals.com] They will perform a physical exam to check for fluid around the joints, warm or red joints, and limited range of motion in the joints.[healthline.com] The physical exam may show: Fluid around a joint Warm, red, tender joints Difficulty moving a joint (called "limited range of motion") Some types of arthritis may cause joint[nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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] range of motion Pain in buttock Limitation of range of motion, especially internal rotation Foot Pain on ambulation, especially at first metatarsophalangeal joint Limited[aafp.org] This limitation is mainly related to the blocking of voluntary muscle functioning and the reflex contracture.[physio-pedia.com]

  • Bursitis

    728.19 Other Polymyositis ossificans 728.2 Muscular wasting and disuse atrophy, not elsewhere classified Amyotrophia NOS Myofibrosis Excludes: neuralgic amyotrophy (353.5) progressive[drdegroot.com] Restricted range of motion in a joint, with or without immediate pain. The overlying skin may become red or feel warm. How is bursitis diagnosed?[mydr.com.au] If inflammation persists near a joint, the joint’s range of motion may be limited. Prolonged limitation of motion may lead to muscle atrophy.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Pseudogout

    Signs: Pseudo-Rheumatoid (5% of CPPD Deposition Disease) Symmetric Polyarthritis with low grade inflammation Synovial thickening Flexion contractures Morning Stiffness Fatigue[fpnotebook.com] At the 2-year follow-up, the patient could walk independently without knee pain or swelling, although his range of knee motion was slightly limited due to joint contracture[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] is limited by pain; crepitus noted with passive movement of the knee joint.[medbullets.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] Encyclopedia) Joint x-ray (Medical Encyclopedia) Limited range of motion (Medical Encyclopedia) Steroid injections - tendon, bursa, joint (Medical Encyclopedia) [ Read More[icdlist.com] 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]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Erosion of the articular cartilage, together with ligamentous changes, result in deformity and contractures. As the disease progresses, pain and deformity increase.[orthoinfo.aaos.org] Inflammation, structural deformity, or both may limit the range of motion of the joint. Over time, some patients with RA develop deformities in the hands or feet.[hopkinsarthritis.org] Flexion contractures may require intensive exercise, casting, or immobilization (eg, splinting) in progressively more stretched-open positions.[merckmanuals.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] At the last visit, the numbers of joints with active arthritis, the C-HAQ scores, and the numbers of joints with limited range of motion were significantly higher in patients[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] changed In some cases, symptoms of juvenile arthritis are mild and do not progress to more severe joint disease and deformities.[orthoinfo.aaos.org]
