Prevention

  • This deformity prevents full range of motion. For example, a flexor deformity of a joint prevents full extension. At the bone level.[leg-limb-stature-lengthening-taller-height-increase-cosmetic.eu]
  • The purpose of this treatment is to prevent the accumulation of waste elements and the stagnation of liquids in the vessels. Massaged tissues are released from toxins with the most obvious result a reduction of edema and swelling in the legs.[medicasancarlo.it]
  • POSITION Positions of these deformities can occur at: Joint level, preventing full extension and motion.[drguichet.com]
