92 Possible Causes for Knee Flexion and/or Extension Limited

  • Omodysplasia Type 1

    A rare autosomal recessive skeletal dysplasia (OMIM:258315) characterised by severe congenital micromelia with shortening and distal tapering of the humeri and femora to give a club-like appearance. Typical facies include a prominent forehead, frontal bossing, short nose with a depressed broad bridge, short columella,[…][medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Spinal Stenosis

    flexion ROM, and knee extension ROM asymmetry.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Community-dwelling older adults with self-reported mobility limitations and symptomatic lumbar spinal stenosis exhibit poorer health characteristics, greater neuromuscular[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] associated with performance-based mobility among participants with symptomatic lumbar spinal stenosis: trunk extensor muscle endurance, leg strength, leg strength asymmetry, knee[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

    flexion ROM, and knee extension ROM asymmetry.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Community-dwelling older adults with self-reported mobility limitations and symptomatic lumbar spinal stenosis exhibit poorer health characteristics, greater neuromuscular[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] associated with performance-based mobility among participants with symptomatic lumbar spinal stenosis: trunk extensor muscle endurance, leg strength, leg strength asymmetry, knee[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Fibular Aplasia-Tibial Campomelia-Oligosyndactyly Syndrome

    There is limited abduction at the hip joint, full flexion and extension at the knee, limited dorsiflexion and plantar flexion at the ankle joint.[ajol.info]

  • Meningitis

    In a person with a positive Kernig's sign, pain limits passive extension of the knee.[en.wikipedia.org] A positive Brudzinski's sign occurs when flexion of the neck causes involuntary flexion of the knee and hip.[en.wikipedia.org] Kernig's sign is assessed with the person lying supine , with the hip and knee flexed to 90 degrees.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Melorheostosis

    At 3 years, limitation of flexion and extension of the right knee was evident. Radiographs revealed findings typical of melorheostosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spondylolisthesis

    Hip flexion with the knee in extension generally is limited due to hamstring tightness. Figure 3: One leg lumbar extension test.[massagetoday.com] Pain might be aggravated during either lateral flexion or rotation, although there is not a clearly established pattern of this pain.[massagetoday.com]

  • Locked Knee

    Pseudo locking can limit both flexion and extension, bending and straightening the knee, whereas true locking is usually a block to extension only.[knee-pain-explained.com] In our case, Cyst attached anteriorly to posterior cruciate ligament, and limited both flexion and extension of knee.[link.springer.com] flexion and extension. 2) Inflammation: inflammation of the structures in and around the knee can also limit movement.[knee-pain-explained.com]

  • Distal Arthrogryposis Type 5D

    The patient had mild bilateral shoulder abduction, mild limitation in elbow extension ( d ), limited knee flexion, left calcaneovalgus ( e ), and camptodactyly with limited[karger.com] Musculoskeletal examination revealed mild bilateral shoulder abduction, mild limitation in elbow extension, limited knee flexion, and left calcaneovalgus (Fig. 1 d, e).[karger.com] Camptodactyly was noticed, more on the right than the left, along with limited extension of the metacarpophalangeal joints (Fig. 1 f).[karger.com]

  • Reiter's Syndrome

    Hip joint extension was limited, and both knees were swollen and tender with flexion deformity. Ankle joints were tender with limited eversion movements.[ijdvl.com] Cervical and sacrococcygeal joints were tender and the extension and flexion movements were restricted.[ijdvl.com]
