Relevant Topics

Movement Disorders

  • Movement disorders

    Pathophysiology:
    Movement disorders are neurological conditions that affect the speed, fluency, quality, and ease of movement. Abnormal fluency or speed of movement (called dyskinesia) may involve excessive or involuntary movement (hyperkinesia) or slowed or absent voluntary movement (hypokinesia). Electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic procedure to assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them (motor neurons).

  • Movement disorders

    Statistics:
    Movement disorders mortality patterns from several different countries show fairly consistent results; mortality rates amongst older populations (>75 years) show a steady increase, whilst the rates for younger populations (< 65 years) have been declining.

  • Movement disorders

    Treatment:
    Dantrolene sodium (Dantrium) acts on the muscles to directly interfere with the chemistry of the muscle contraction. It is generally used when other medications are not effective. Benefits may include improved passive movement, decreased muscle tone, and reduced muscle spasms, tightness, and pain.

  • Movement disorders

    Major Research:
    Other orthopedic surgeries that may accompany contracture release surgery include osteotomy, in which a small wedge is removed from a bone to allow repositioning. A cast is applied while the bone heals in a more natural position. Osteotomy is more commonly performed on the bones in the hips or feet.
