From: Contributions of biarticular myogenic components to the limitation of the range of motion after immobilization of rat knee joint

After immobilization 1 week 2 weeks 4 weeks 8 weeks 16 weeks
Total contracture 30.0 ± 4.1 38.0 ± 9.0 44.5 ± 5.5 61.4 ± 7.5 75.5 ± 14.8
Myogenic contracture 15.9 ± 5.6 14.7 ± 6.5 21.0 ± 2.2 -1.6 ± 8.2 -7.5 ± 1.5
Arthrogenic contracture 3.7 ± 10.5 15.7 ± 1.9 25.0 ± 4.1 57.9 ± 7.6 71.5 ± 12.2
