Episode 34-Hoffman’s Sign, Hyperefflexia, Babinski sign and Clonus

     

In today’s podcast I explain how identifying an upper motor neuron lesion can be very important when evaluating your orthopedic patients. I will talk about the following:

Hoffman’s Sign

Hyperefflexia

Babinski sign/reflex

Clonus.

I will explain how to perform them, why they are important, what you should evaluate next, what the test means and what to do with your patient when you find these.

Here are some links to real patients with some or all of these findings: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL_jx_nSzcqqGUkPINSuf2kUyIAi439zb-
