Contractures are preventable. But far too often, they are not prevented because nursing home companies don’t have enough staff members to take the time that is necessary to provide the care residents need to remain free from contractures. Sadly, preventing contractures is not a top priority for nursing homes even though mobility and health contribute to the overall well-being of nursing home residents.

Contractures occur in nursing home residents if they are not properly cared for with appropriate exercise or therapy. Contractures are the shortening and hardening of muscles which can cause immobility and pain.
