537 Possible Causes for Limb Joint Contracture

  • Supination Injury

    The affected limb cannot be properly positioned for grasping and cannot effectively assist in a range of 2-handed activities.[] […] as interosseous membrane stiffness, muscle shortening, and joint stiffness increases.10 The posture in forearm supination presents serious functional disabilities.[] […] deformity occurs in 6% to 10% of children with residual brachial plexus birth injuries.8,9 Although the deformity starts as a dynamic deficit, it progresses to a fixed supination contracture[]

  • Stroke

    […] disuse of the limb with the use of splints or other tools to stabilize the joint.[] After full range has been achieved by the therapist, the limb should be positioned in the lengthened positions to prevent against further contractures, skin breakdown, and[]

  • Osteoarthritis of the Knee

    The goal of osteoarthritis treatment is to reduce pain and muscle spasms, improve limb function, prevent joint contractures and train patients to function in everyday life[] Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging of the diseased joint is of great significance [3, 4].[]

  • Melorheostosis

    It is often associated with joint contractures (permanent shortening of a muscle or tendon) affecting the upper or lower limbs.[] In children presentation of melorheostosis, is more likely be as limb length discrepancy, deformity or joint contractures which may be seen before radiographic evidence of[] The skin and subcutaneous tissues may be affected by fibrosis, resulting in contractures of joints and limbs that lead to deformities and limb-length discrepancies.[]
