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 cognitive 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: T28 Limited function/disability (t)
– ICD-10 Code: Z73.6 Limitation of activities due to disability

Symptoms

  • Difficulty in performing daily activities
  • Decreased mobility
  • Impaired coordination
  • Cognitive impairments
  • Fatigue
  • Pain or discomfort

Causes

  • Musculoskeletal disorders (e.g., arthritis, osteoporosis)
  • Neurological disorders (e.g., stroke, Parkinson’s disease)
  • Chronic conditions (e.g., heart disease, diabetes)
  • Traumatic injuries (e.g., spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury)
  • Age-related changes

Diagnostic Steps

Medical History

  • Gather information about the patient’s medical conditions, including any chronic illnesses or previous injuries.
  • 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 the patient’s mobility, coordination, and strength.
  • Evaluate the patient’s range of motion and joint function.
  • Assess the patient’s cognitive function and mental status.

Laboratory Tests

  • Blood tests: Evaluate for underlying medical conditions such as diabetes, thyroid disorders, or vitamin deficiencies.
  • Specialized assays: Assess specific markers related to musculoskeletal or neurological disorders.

Diagnostic Imaging

  • X-rays: Assess for fractures, joint abnormalities, or degenerative changes.
  • Ultrasound: Evaluate soft tissue structures, such as tendons or ligaments.
  • CT scans or MRIs: Provide detailed images of the musculoskeletal or neurological structures.

Other Tests

  • Electromyography (EMG): Measures the electrical activity of muscles and nerves.
  • Balance and gait assessments: Evaluate the patient’s balance and walking ability.
  • Cognitive assessments: Assess the patient’s cognitive function and memory.

Follow-up and Patient Education

  • Schedule regular follow-up appointments to monitor the patient’s progress and adjust interventions as needed.
  • Provide education on self-management strategies, including exercises, assistive devices, and lifestyle modifications.

Possible Interventions
