Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy orthosis
Posted By: Tim Jarrott on October 10, 2012
I have been asked to consult with a patient who presents with significant
scapular protraction and elevation as a result of facioscapulohumeral
muscular dystrophy. She is a 25 year old female and has limited upper limb
functional ability due to the above. I'd appreciate any advice regarding
effective orthotic management for these patients. I will post a summary of
replies back to the list.
Thanks in advance for your help.
