36 Possible Causes for Short Sternocleidomastoid Muscle

  • Camptodactyly Syndrome Type Guadalajara III

    Other clinical manifestations included: multiple nevi, simplified ears, retrognathia, congenital shortness of the sternocleidomastoid muscle, thin hands and feet, a small[insights.ovid.com]

  • Spasmodic Torticollis

    Short latency responses can be recorded in tonically active sternocleidomastoid muscles after stimulation of the infraorbital branch of the trigeminal nerve.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Such trigemino-sternocleidomastoid response consists of a bilateral positive/negative wave in the average of unrectified surface EMG, corresponding to a short period of inhibition[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Torticollis

    The procedure will lengthen the short sternocleidomastoid muscle, and may be done as an outpatient surgery, meaning your child could go home the same day.[orthoinfo.aaos.org] Congenital torticollis is most often caused when the muscle that runs along both sides of the neck (the sternocleidomastoid muscle, or SCM for short) is strained, causing[whattoexpect.com]

  • Congenital Torticollis

    The procedure will lengthen the short sternocleidomastoid muscle, and may be done as an outpatient surgery, meaning your child could go home the same day.[arlingtonortho.com]

  • Kyphosis

    Jaw protrudes forward because sternocleidomastoid muscle becomes short and tightened.[epainassist.com] Treatment for Kyphosis Stretching techniques and massage therapy for the neck muscles, especially sternocleidomastoid muscle.[epainassist.com] Muscles of the neck and back are imbalanced. Stretching and weakening of the muscles of latissimus dorsi, rhomboids and trapezius.[epainassist.com]

  • Camptodactyly Syndrome Guadalajara Type 1

    Other clinical manifestations included: multiple nevi, simplified ears, retrognathia, congenital shortness of the sternocleidomastoid muscle, thin hands and feet, a small[journals.lww.com]

  • Idiopathic Bilateral Vestibulopathy

    Responses were recorded on the sternocleidomastoid muscles. Both patients showed unilateral absence of VEMPs with both acoustic and short-duration galvanic stimuli.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Responses wererecorded on the sternocleidomastoid muscles. Results.[docslide.fr] As acoustic stimulation, 95 dB nHL clicks and short tone bursts (500 Hz) were presented, while 3 mA (1 ms) short-duration galvanic stimuli were presented as electrical stimulation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Brachyphalangy Polydactyly and Tibial Aplasia/Hypoplasia

    Torticollis MedGen UID: 11859 • Concept ID: C0040485 • Sign or Symptom Torticollis is a twisted neck as a result of shortening of sternocleidomastoid muscle.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This short and fibrotic muscle pulls the head laterally and rotates the chin and face to the opposite end.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Superior Semicircular Canal Dehiscence

    Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potential (VEMP) Loud noises provoke short-latency relaxation potential in the ipsilateral sternocleidomastoid muscle.[neuroequilibrium.in] Vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMP): In SSCD, loud tones evoke a short-latency relaxation potential in the ipsilateral sternocleidomastoid muscle.[vestibular.org]

  • Labyrinthine Fistula

    […] relaxation potential in the ipsilateral sternocleidomastoid muscle - patients with SCD typically have a lower than normal threshold for the VEMP response and the amplitude[quizlet.com] - cholesteatoma with labyrinthine fistula - fenestration operations Testing Tullio Phenomenon - vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMP) - in SCD, loud tones evoke a short-latency[quizlet.com]
