Introduction

Limited function/disability refers to a condition where an individual experiences a decrease in their ability to perform daily activities due to physical or mental impairments. This guide aims to provide an overview of the symptoms, causes, diagnostic steps, possible interventions, and lifestyle interventions for limited function/disability.

Codes

– ICPC-2 Code: N28 Limited function/disability (n)
– ICD-10 Code: Z73.6 Limitation of activities due to disability

Symptoms

  • Difficulty in performing daily activities
  • Reduced mobility
  • Muscle weakness
  • Chronic pain
  • Fatigue
  • Cognitive impairments
  • Emotional disturbances

Causes

  • Chronic medical conditions (e.g., arthritis, multiple sclerosis)
  • Neurological disorders (e.g., stroke, Parkinson’s disease)
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Mental health conditions (e.g., depression, anxiety)
  • Aging process
  • Genetic factors

Diagnostic Steps

Medical History

  • Gather information about the patient’s medical conditions, including chronic illnesses, injuries, and mental health conditions.
  • Identify any risk factors that may contribute to limited function/disability.
  • Assess the patient’s symptoms and their impact on daily activities.

Physical Examination

  • Perform a comprehensive physical examination to assess muscle strength, range of motion, and coordination.
  • Evaluate the patient’s gait and balance.
  • Look for any signs of deformities or abnormalities.

Laboratory Tests

  • Blood tests to assess for underlying medical conditions, such as arthritis or vitamin deficiencies.
  • Complete blood count (CBC) to rule out anemia or infection.
  • Thyroid function tests to evaluate for thyroid disorders.
  • Electrolyte panel to assess for imbalances that may contribute to muscle weakness or fatigue.

Diagnostic Imaging

  • X-rays to evaluate for musculoskeletal abnormalities or fractures.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to assess for structural abnormalities in the brain or spinal cord.
  • Computed tomography (CT) scans to visualize the extent of musculoskeletal injuries or abnormalities.
  • Ultrasound to assess for vascular or soft tissue abnormalities.

Other Tests

  • Neuropsychological testing to evaluate cognitive impairments.
  • Electromyography (EMG) to assess nerve and muscle function.
  • Functional assessments to determine the impact of limited function/disability on daily activities.

Follow-up and Patient Education

  • Schedule regular follow-up appointments to monitor the patient’s progress and adjust interventions as needed.
  • Provide education on adaptive strategies and assistive devices to improve function and independence.
  • Offer resources and support groups for patients and their families to cope with the challenges of limited function/disability.

Possible Interventions

Traditional Interventions

Medications:

Top 5 drugs for limited function/disability:
