Joint-preserving rheumatoid forefoot surgery improves clinical outcomes, but postoperative range of motion (ROM) of the metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint remains an issue. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of ROM exercise from the early period after lesser toe MTP joint-preserving surgery Methods: A retrospective, observational study of 22 rheumatoid arthritis patients who underwent modified metatarsal shortening offset osteotomy was completed. Lesser toe scales were administered using the Japanese Society for Surgery of the Foot (JSSF) standard rating system, and the maximum distance of continuous walking was checked to evaluate clinical outcomes. Maximum passive ROM of the lesser toe MTP joints and the extension angle of the 2 MTP joint at the terminal stance phase during gait were measured and evaluated.

Following 1st metatarsophalangeal joint replacement, there is a normalisation of foot pressure distribution as demonstrated by peak pressures of the 1st and 5th metatarsal heads and their ratio as mea...
The forefoot functions as the base of support during late stance, rotating about the dual-axis of the metatarsophalangeal joints. Previous research has shown that joint axis definition affects estimat...
This study aimed to develop a rabbit model of knee contracture in extension and investigate the natural history of motion loss and time-dependent changes in the joint capsule after immobilization. We ...
Static stretching (SS) has been used for inducing acute and long-term increases in range of motion (ROM). Foam rolling (FR) has recently gained popularity for acutely increasing ROM. However, the long...
We examined the effect of curcumin (CUR) ingestion before or after exercise on changes in muscle damage and inflammatory responses after exercise. We conducted two parallel experiments with different ...
Range of motion at ankle joint and subtalar joint will be assessed before and after utilization of ARM device. The changes in range of motion will be recorded and compared to literature.
The purpose of the study is to determine whether manipulation of the subtalar joint (one of the two joints of the ankle) has an effect on ankle range of motion in a group of ankles that ha...
Question:Does kinesiotaping(KT) reduce oedema, pain, disability and increase range of joint motion on patients with acute ankle ligament injuries? Design:Two-group, randomised, controlled ...
Lower limb osteoarthritis is a major health problem in the westernized countries. The current gold standard treatment is joint replacement. However clinical guidelines recommend physical t...
The purpose of this study is to determine the relationship between cutaneous functional unit(CFU)recruitment throughout the available active range of motion of a prescribed joint in normal...
A bony proliferation and articular degeneration of the first METATARSOPHALANGEAL JOINT that is characterized by pain and a progressive decrease in the dorsiflexion range of motion.
The distance and direction to which a bone joint can be extended. Range of motion is a function of the condition of the joints, muscles, and connective tissues involved. Joint flexibility can be improved through appropriate MUSCLE STRETCHING EXERCISES.
Surgical procedure to relax the JOINT CAPSULE tissues in a joint that has a reduced range of motion due to CONTRACTURE or TISSUE ADHESIONS or joint deformities.
The articulations extending from the ANKLE distally to the TOES. These include the ANKLE JOINT; TARSAL JOINTS; METATARSOPHALANGEAL JOINT; and TOE JOINT.
A method of recording heart motion and internal structures by combining ultrasonic imaging with exercise testing (EXERCISE TEST) or pharmacologic stress.

Arthritis is by definition the inflammation of one or more joints, characterized by swelling, pain, warmth, redness and diminished range of joint movement (Oxford Medical Dictionary). There are many different types; Noninflammatory; Osteoarthritis, N...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
