  • Knee Sprain

    Before surgery, it is necessary to establish whether there is a full range of motion in the knee; if there is significant atrophy of the quadriceps and hamstrings, an intensive[healthcentral.com] Often in the knee, the functional strength of the quadriceps muscle, especially the medial VMO muscle, is weak and atrophied.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Knee Disorder

    If the athlete has suffered for some time then they will likely have atrophy (wasting away) of the quadriceps of thigh muscles.[sportsinjuryclinic.net]

Loss of range of motion is uncommon.[musculoskeletalkey.com] Historically, immobilization has been encouraged; however, prolonged splinting leads to quadriceps atrophy and stiffness, which may complicate the condition. 5 Persistent[aafp.org]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    Clinical examination reveals muscle pseudohypertrophy affecting the calf muscles and there may be atrophy of more proximal muscles such as the quadriceps.[orpha.net]
