Example text

It was a simple extension of that logic that, to be effective, all treatment must reach the source and all treatment must benefit the lesion. Cyriax was intrigued by the number of patients passing through orthopaedic clinics who presented with normal X-ray findings, and acknowledged the soft tissues as the source of the complaints. He devised a mechanism of clinical examination to establish the source of the pain which was logical and methodical, and was deliberately pared to the minimum procedure in order to discover in which tissue the lesion lay.

This may have its origin in a neurological condition, usually from nerve root compression at the relevant spinal level, as a result of reflex muscle inhibition associated with joint effusion (de Andrade et al 1965), or as a consequence of disuse. The cause of the wasting will usually become apparent as the examination proceeds. Swelling Swelling is indicative of the presence of inflammation resulting from trauma or overuse, as in tenosynovitis and bursitis or arthritis. Swelling which presents immediately indicates bleeding in the area.

21 Section | 1 | Principles of orthopaedic medicine Resisted tests Resisted tests Pain Power Resisted isometric muscle tests assess the contractile unit – comprising the muscle, musculotendinous junction, tendon and the teno-osseous attachment to bone – for pain and power. The tendon is not strictly a contractile structure but is tested as part of the functional contractile unit. When assessing the resisted tests it is important to look for reproduction of the patient’s presenting pain and there are specific points to bear in mind which ensure that, as far as possible, only the contractile unit is being tested rather than the inert structures.
