Disease relevance of Range of Motion, Articular

  • The primary outcome measurement was change in physical impairments thought to be secondary to radiation, including active and passive range of motion (AROM and PROM), muscle strength, limb edema, and pain [1].
  • In the diabetes group, passive range of motion was significantly correlated (P < 0.05) with age, sex, duration of diabetes, and to a variable extent, glucose control, but was not correlated with the presence of clinically significant neuropathy, retinopathy, nephropathy, or peripheral vascular disease, with activity level, or with hand dominance [2].
  • RESULTS: After the six-month treatment period, a significant improvement, as compared with base-line values, was observed in total skin score, maximal oral opening, range of motion of wrists and elbows, grip strength, functional index, dysphagia, and creatinine clearance [3].
  • The dystonia began 1 to 4 days after the trauma and differed clinically from idiopathic torticollis by marked limitation of range of motion, lack of improvement after sleep ("honeymoon period"), and absence of geste antagonistique [4].
  • Human parvovirus B19 in young male patients with hemophilia A: associations with treatment product exposure and joint range-of-motion limitation [5].

Psychiatry related information on Range of Motion, Articular


High impact information on Range of Motion, Articular

  • The double-jointed structure of the primase-helicase permits a free range of motion for the primase and helicase domains that suggests how the continuous unwinding of DNA at the replication fork can be periodically coupled to Okazaki fragment synthesis [9].
  • The Hand Function Index was independent of the clinical measurements (range of motion, strength, etc. on the specially designed Custom Form) and of the self rating [10].
  • CONCLUSION: Self-administered questionnaires like WOMAC and SF-36 are more responsive measures of pain and function than range of motion, performance tests, and observer-administered questions (FAS) following total hip replacement [11].
  • Rheumatoid arthritis was considered for centuries to be a nuisance condition, limiting in its effects on an individual's range of motion and the source of considerable distress, but not a life-threatening disease [12].
  • Clinically significant improvement in mandibular range of motion was observed for naproxen compared to celecoxib and placebo [13].

Chemical compound and disease context of Range of Motion, Articular


Biological context of Range of Motion, Articular


Anatomical context of Range of Motion, Articular

  • We concluded that more than 30 degrees of elevation in the coronal or scapular plane and rotation ranging from 0 degrees to 60 degrees of external rotation compose the safe range of motion after repair of the rotator cuff [21].
  • Flexor tendon excursion improved, and active range of motion increased from 60 to 90 degrees before surgery to 30 to 105 degrees 20 months after surgery [22].
  • An optimization method was used to fit the model parameters to three-dimensional kinematic data of foot and shank markers, obtained during test movements throughout the entire physiological range of motion of the ankle joint [23].
  • Lumbar range of motion measurements were taken with and without radiologic control of the T12 and S1 vertebrae as reference points for positioning of the inclinometers [24].
  • The effects of passive range-of-motion and isometric exercises on acute monosodium urate-induced experimental arthritis in a rabbit model were assessed by serial intra-articular temperature measurements and synovial leukocyte counts [25].

Associations of Range of Motion, Articular with chemical compounds

  • Injection of trigger points with 0.25% bupivacaine decreased pain in all subjects and increased range of motion in subjects who, on initial assessment, demonstrated limitations of movement of the affected part(s) [26].
  • The amino terminal glycine had essentially the same range of motion as the backbone carbons [27].
  • Electromyograms from the flexor and extensor muscles of normal human elbows were simultaneously recorded during maximal-effort isokinetic movement at 15 degrees/s over the joint's full range of motion [28].
  • OBJECTIVE: To determine whether arthrographic distension with a mixture of saline and steroid, in patients with painful stiff shoulder for at least 3 months, is better than placebo in improving function, pain, and range of motion at 3, 6, and 12 weeks [29].
  • Maximal isometric force, range of motion, muscle soreness, plasma creatine kinase activity, upper arm circumference, and B-mode ultrasound pictures of the elbow flexors (US) were measured before and for 5 d postexercise in both conditions [30].

Gene context of Range of Motion, Articular

  • RESULTS: Generalized neck stiffness and decreased range of motion were noted in most children with FOP [31].
  • There was a positive correlation between the severity of RA and the range of motion of the jaw [32].
  • Although elders had less low-back (trunk relative to pelvis) range of motion (ROM; P = 0.013) during gait than young subjects, no age-related differences were detected in absolute trunk and pelvis ROM or peak pitch angles during gait [33].
  • Evidence supported respectable levels of between-observer repeatability regarding: symptom questionnaires (kappa, 0.52 to 0.79); measurement of shoulder range of motion with a goniometer (intraclass coefficients > 0.70); tests for carpal tunnel syndrome (Tinel's and Phalen's kappa, 0.53 to 0.80); and demonstration of neck tenderness (kappa = 0.43) [34].
  • Also, data collected on joints were used to assess relations between B19 serostatus and joint range-of-motion (ROM) limitation [5].
