Hyperkinetic movements as any unwanted excess movement.
Hypertonia is abnormally increased resistance to externally imposed movement . Negative signs are insufficient muscle activity or insufficient control of muscle activity .
Hyperkinetic signs differ from hypertonia because hypertonia is appreciated only during movement imposed by the examiner (passive movement), whereas hyperkinetic movements are appreciated during movements made (voluntarily or involuntarily) by the child (active movement). Hyperkinetic signs differ from negative signs because excessive movement or muscle activity is present with hyperkinetic movements. Thus hyperkinetic movements constitute a distinct category of motor disorder in children. Hyperkinetic movements, negative signs, and hypertonia may be present in the same child.
Hyperkinetic movements disorders are among the motor abnormalities associated with the concept of “extrapyramidal” movement disorders in adults. While its recognized that the use of the term “extrapyramidal” has historical significance and is common in the literature, it is important to note that this term has only a weak link to the neuroanatomic localization of motor disorders in children and adults. Its not recommend to use the term “extrapyramidal” to describe movement disorders in children.
Types of hyperkinetic movement disorders
“A movement disorder in which involuntary sustained or intermittent muscle contractions cause twisting and repetitive movements, abnormal postures, or both
Chorea is an ongoing random-appearing sequence of one or more discrete involuntary movements or movement fragments.
Athetosis is a slow, continuous, involuntary writhing movement that prevents maintenance of a stable posture.
Myoclonus is a sequence of repeated, often non-rhythmic, brief shock-like jerks due to sudden involuntary contraction or relaxation of one or more muscles.
Tremor is a rhythmic back-and-forth or oscillating involuntary movement about a joint axis.
Tics are repeated, individually recognizable, intermittent movements or movement fragments that are almost always briefly suppressible and are usually associated with awareness of an urge to perform the movement.
Stereotypies are repetitive, simple movements that can be voluntarily suppressed.
