Summary

Systemic sclerosis is an autoimmune disease in which the hand is responsible for 75% of the overall disability. Management is based on systemic treatments combined with kinesitherapy aimed at maintaining joint amplitudes, improving muscle strength and preventing stiffness. The aim of this study is to describe and compare the average spontaneous and attempted reduction range of motion limitations between the dominant and contralateral hand.

Description

Systemic sclerosis is an autoimmune disease in which the hand is responsible for 75% of the overall disability. In case of limitation, the level of skin fibrosis, Raynaud's syndrome and its complications, the search for painful joints with or without synovitis, and the presence of calcifications must therefore be assessed. Management is based on systemic treatments combined with kinesitherapy aimed at maintaining joint amplitudes, improving muscle strength and preventing stiffness. No study to date has compared the functionality of one hand to the other. The hypothesis is that there is a difference in range of motion limitations between the dominant hand and the contralateral hand.

Patients in the active file of the Internal Medicine A department of the Limoges University Hospital who meet the inclusion criteria will be offered the study by telephone. Patients wishing to participate will be given an appointment on a dedicated consultation slot. During this visit, Patients will be given an information note and their consent will be collected. The study examinations will be performed and the questionnaire completed. At the end of this visit, the study will be completed for the patient.
