Sagittal view of the facet joint subluxation. Similar problems at the atlantoaxial (AA) joints have been documented byAtul Goel.
The exclusion criteria include (1) history of serious conditions or diseases such as cancer; (2) skin problems, wounds, or infections on the affected shoulder; (3) skin allergy to the tape; (4) history of shoulder fracture on the affected side or history of shoulder sprain or subluxation before the stroke; (5) severe disease which may affect the study, such as uncontrolled hypertension or heart disease; (6) history of intra-articular steroid injection in the past 4 weeks.

Although our patient had arthrosis of the wrist joint and dorsal subluxation of distal ulna, but there was substantial improvement in the functional outcome with no pain and without impairment in daily activities and change of occupation.
Agreement was measured using intraclass correlation coefficients (ICCs) with 95% confidence intervals (CI) for continuous variables (total BMO score and total fracture score) and Cohen's kappa coefficients with standard error (SE) for categorical variables (patterns of involvement and presence of subluxation).
The characteristic bilateral occurrence and associated cervical subluxation at the involved segment supported the degenerative pathophysiology in the cyst.
Radiographs confirmed suboptimal positioning of the previously placed joint stabilization implants, and persistent subluxation of the left intertarsal joint was demonstrated in stress radiographic views (Figure 2).
[3,5] This case report illustrates that severe atlantoaxial vertical subluxation and posterior subluxation of the axis associated with RA can be managed satisfactorily with minimal surgical manipulation and prolonged immobilisation with a rigid cervical collar, thus avoiding extensive surgery in high-risk patients.
