  • Supination Injury

    The affected limb cannot be properly positioned for grasping and cannot effectively assist in a range of 2-handed activities.[] Travell & Simons’ Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction: The Trigger Point Manual. The Lower Extremities. Baltimore, MD: Williams & Wilkins, 1993. Print.[] The current literature on lower extremity opioid usage has limitations and would benefit from additional study.[]

  • Hip Contracture

  • Eosinophilic Fasciitis

    contractures and limb length discrepancies.[] (red color). d T2-weighted MRI showed significantly thickened fascia of the lower extremities (arrowheads).[] Those with arthritis, atrophy of muscle, scarring limiting joint range of motion (contracture), and shortening of limb length tend to do worse.[]

  • Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy

    […] and weak muscles Stage 3 (irreversible changes can be seen) Limited movement in limb because of tightened muscles and tendons (contracture) Muscle wasting Pain in the entire[] This disorder should be considered in any painful pelvic girdle syndrome or lower extremity pain. The hip is involved in 88% of cases.[] Reflex sympathetic dystrophy is characterized by constant burning pain and hyperesthesia in an extremity. Lower extremities are usually affected.[]

  • Osteomyelitis of the Tibia

    In the event of complete bony union, these treatment difficulties may lead to the functional decline of limbs with limb-length discrepancy, deformities, and joint contracture[] At the end of skeletal growing, her lower extremity was short and varus deformity of the ankle noticed.[] […] the lower extremity.[]

  • Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease

    It is accompanied by hip flexion contracture. There is sometimes tenderness, both anteriorly and posteriorly over the hip joint area.[] Radiography of the lower extremity was conducted and left LCPD was diagnosed. GHT was interrupted.[] Hip flexion and adduction contractures may develop in extreme cases. Spasm may occur with log-roll of the lower extremity.[]

  • Melorheostosis

    It is often associated with joint contractures (permanent shortening of a muscle or tendon) affecting the upper or lower limbs.[] Melorheostosis is a rare disease that affects fewer than 1:1,000,000 persons worldwide and most typically affects the lower extremities.[] extremities than elsewhere Clinical Findings About 50% affected develop symptoms by age 20 Adults present with Pain Joint stiffness Deformity that may progress over time[]

  • 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[] Conversely, patients reported a decrease in Knee Society Score (KSS) functional score, short-form 36 health survey (SF-36), lower extremity functional scale (LEFS), and visual[] CONCLUSION: Improvements in pain and activities of daily living were observed by TCVO along with valgus correction of the lower extremity and stabilization of the femorotibial[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

  • Lymphedema

    The increased swelling and weight of the limb can create problems in gait, ROM, functions, decreased sensation, balance, strength, increased fatigue and joint contracture[] CASE DESCRIPTION: The patient was a 42-year-old woman who was morbidly obese and had left lower extremity chronic stage III lymphedema.[] The diagnosis of lymphedema in the lower extremities starts with the appearance of “Stemmer’s Sign” – the inability to pinch a fold of skin at the base of the toes (see Figure[]
