Patients with FSHD, the technique safely and correctly.

These may be custom role in certain acute circumstances a made or off the shelf. Some off-the- contracture following an injury and shelf carbon fiber orthoses can provide temporary immobility, for example. Stance-control knee-ankle- experimental at this time. Cervical orthoses provide support for weak neck flexors or exten- sors.
Although several lightweight rigid cervical braces are available, patients often do not tolerate them because they make walking awkward and chewing practically impossible. Such orthotics may, however, decrease pain and mus- cle fatigue during activities such as watching television. Scapular retraction orthoses and lumbosacral corsets can also provide support in selected pa- tients with axial weakness and back pain eg, FSHD. Body habitus may predict how tolerable the device will be, as obesity may preclude comfort.
Also, many patients with muscle disease will have difficulties putting the sup- ports on without assistance. This type of brace is often Figure They typically work well initially, but if contractures or weakness prog- body.

Consequently, corticosteroid treatment in DMD. As the child grows, over 10 degrees scoliosis for at least the curve may rapidly progress as the 8 years. Scapulothoracic fixation in carefully selected patients as illustrated by Case can improve function by anchoring the scapula to the spine and providing stability that the weak serratus anterior, middle and lower trapezius muscles, and rhomboids cannot. Evidence sug- gests that such procedures may result in significant benefits Figure which must be considered in light of the need for postoperative immobilization, such as stretching of the slings, loosen- ing of the wires and screws, and, in some cases, nerve damage.

KEY POINT Case h Diagnosing and managing osteoporosis A year-old woman with facioscapulohumeral dystrophy had slowly is critical in patients progressive weakness and increased difficulty with ambulation over a with chronic year period.
Initially, her major problem was ankle dorsiflexor weakness myopathies. She did well with a prescribed pediatrician, internist, pair of custom-molded plastic ankle-foot orthoses AFOs that provided or endocrinologist is dorsiflexion assist and helped stabilize her ankles.
She walked much usually appropriate for more naturally with these, but as her disease progressed she developed severe cases. Her AFOs had been set at 90 degrees and during heel strike actually increased the flexor moment at her knee joints and contributed to her instability.
She began using a wheelchair and became essentially nonambulatory. Using these braces, she resumed walking, and her falls ceased Supplemental Digital Content , links. This case illustrates well the challenges and rewards of effective bracing for patients with chronic myopathies. Limitations in insurance also can affect the number and type of orthotic devices that can be tried.

No regimen has Osteoporosis been agreed upon for preventing Since the primary factor that deter- osteoporosis in patients on corticoste- mines bone density is muscle roids, although calcium and vitamin D strength, virtually all patients with supplementation are recommended. This is particularly used, but evidence remains insuffi- true in nonambulatory patients and cient to recommend bisphosphonates those treated with corticosteroids.
If severe, osteoporosis over steroid treatment alone. Case A year-old woman with facioscapulohumeral dystrophy was seen for concerns about midback and bilateral scapular pain.
She worked full-time in a hospital, and her job responsibilities included reaching above her head. She and her husband were shown active assistive range-of-motion exercises.
She tried but did not tolerate a scapular retraction orthosis and was then referred to an orthopedic surgeon with experience in scapular fixation surgery.
She underwent scapular fixation surgery using a bone graft from the pelvis on the right scapula, completed her rehabilitation, and returned to work with much improved function of the arm and less pain. Six months later she repeated the procedure on her left scapula. Two years after surgery, she reported much less pain on the McGill Pain Questionnaire, was still able to raise her arms above her head, and was a willing volunteer to discuss the surgery and rehab with other patients considering the procedure.
This case illustrates the importance of recognizing when surgical intervention may be the best solution for a particular patient. Conservative options were initially tried, and when they did not provide pain relief, the patient was judged to be an excellent surgical candidate.
She was highly motivated and had an available caretaker during her convalescence as well as support from her employer.
Her arm function and quality of life remained improved since her surgery. Mobility Aids and Adaptive A variety of wheelchairs manual, powered, or power-assisted [Figure ] , motorized scooters, walkers, bath and toilet aids, chair lifts, ceiling lifts, and stair lifts are available. Unfortunately, economic considerations and in- surance coverage rather than true medical need are often the primary determinants for what equipment a patient can obtain. Occupational and physical therapists and physiatrists ex- perienced in neuromuscular diseases and their rate of progression are essen- tial as adaptive equipment consultants.

As in any diet, how- ever, compliance is a frequent problem in helping patients maintain an ideal weight. Ventilatory assistance to reduce energy expenditure may be nec- essary, as well as supplemental caloric intake with nutritional supplements. This may entail insertion of a nasogastric tube or percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy PEG for indefinite use, as the work of self-feeding or mastica- tion becomes profoundly exhausting. Referral to a licensed dietitian is always helpful in managing these issues.
