The contracture management products that we use are designed to prevent and treat contractures of the hand, wrist, fingers, elbow, hips, knees, foot and ankle. Contractures are the chronic loss of joint motion due to structural changes in non-bony tissue. These non-bony tissues include muscles, ligaments, and tendons. There are a number of pathologies and diseases that can lead to joint contractures. The primary causes resulting in a joint contraction are stroke, muscle imbalance, prolonged bed rest, and immobilization.
