With What Function: muscle stiffness (rigor, cogwheel phenomenon), rapid fatigability, need for posture or position change with muscular insufficiency and hypermobility. Translational joint movements do not elicit pain. Palpation: local tenderness to pressure and more general muscle splinting, possibly with hard foci in the muscle (trigger points, maximal points, segmental irritation points, myogeloses) that may be knoblike or cordlike.
