  • Classic Multiminicore Myopathy

    neck flexion Limited neck flexibility 0005991 Motor delay 0001270 Muscular dystrophy 0003560 Muscular hypotonia Low or weak muscle tone 0001252 Nasal speech Nasal voice 0001611[] […] extensors resulting in limitation of neck flexion, followed by limitation of extension of the spine Cardiac disease with conduction defects and arrhythmias (atrial fibrillation[] Neck: limited neck flexion Head And Neck Mouth: high-arched palate Head And Neck Face: facial weakness Chest External Features: flat thorax Skeletal Spine: scoliosis spinal[]

  • Intertrigo

    Intertrigo is more common in warmer months and in infants, especially in obese infants because of their deep skin folds, chubbiness, drooling, and limited neck space.[] Other common sites that may develop intertrigo are inguinal, axillary, breast, and thigh areas, along with any other areas of flexion where two surfaces may create friction[]

  • Hashimoto Thyroiditis

    Clinical Impression Increased fatigue Overall muscle aches and stiffness in neck not lessening Palpable tender mass in anterior neck C4/5 weakness bilaterally Cervical flexion[] Thoracic spine flexion limited to 10 degrees. Side bending bilaterally limited to 15 degrees each side. Remaining upper quarter ROM WNL.[] The goiter in her neck prevented her from achieving more range of motion in her neck.[]

  • Whiplash Injury

    When the head and neck have reached maximum extension, the neck then snaps into flexion.[] When the head and neck have reached maximum extension, the neck then snaps into flexion.[] The chin limits forward flexion but the forward movement may be sufficient to cause longitudinal distraction and neurological damage.[]

  • Malum Coxae Senilis

    During this period, hip flexion is limited to 70 degrees.[] To prevent adhesions between the capsule and the osteotomized zone of the femoral neck, continuous passive motion (no more than 70 degrees of hip flexion) can be used for[] The rehabilitation program consists of touchdown partial weight bearing using crutches for 6 weeks to decrease the risk of femoral neck stress fracture, and then progresses[]

  • Rotator Cuff Tendinitis

    […] no improvement in shoulder abduction and flexion.[] With shoulder movement there was a pulling into the entire chest and neck.[] Significant progress was made with spatial dynamics (the exercises as listed In Part I) but range of motion was still limited with no horizontal abduction past midline and[]

  • Spinous Process Fracture

    […] of the neck by segmental flexion.[] If this chronic flexion state occurs, cervical extension to the midline following flexion is fairly limited to increasing the cervical lordosis with little axial extension[]

  • Cervical Osteoarthritis

    […] of movement: All the neck movements get limited, often bilateral but is unilateral in case of acute onset of pain.[] The movement which gets very much limited is flexion of the upper cervical spine and extension of the lower cervical spine. 7) On palpation: It is detected that there is loss[] […] impinged nerve root. 5) Nature of pain: Usually described as dull, aching pain, sometimes gets exaggerated as sharp, stabbing pain and frequently occurs as cramping type. 6) Limitation[]

  • Coxa Vara

    Our patient had an HE angle of 50 however the neck-shaft angle was 100 and presented a progressive deformity and recreational activities limitations so she underwent a right[] The neck-shaft angle was corrected to 140 . Anteroposterior radiograph of the pelvis showing the valgus osteotomy and greater trochanter epiphysiodesis.[] […] valgus flexion osteotomy with epiphysiodesis of the greater trochanter.[]

  • Meningitis

    Passive ROM of the neck into flexion will gradually become painful and limited.[] A positive Brudzinski's sign occurs when flexion of the neck causes involuntary flexion of the knee and hip.[] Also, neck extension and rotation may be painful as well, however not to the extent of flexion. In severe cases Brudzinki’s sign or Kernig’s may be presented.[]
