When I described that, “the subluxation of cricothyroid articulation is similar to a dislocated elbow,” I got a lot of questions, like: “how similar exactly?”
Well, a dislocated elbow is when the radial head is dislocated from the annular ligament of ithe ulna.
The yellow line is the annular ligament
The proximal radio-ulnar joint is very simple, unlike most joints, it is connected by the annular ligament. It does not suffer like that of normal dislocations.
In fact, some people believe that a dislocated elbow is not classified as dislocation at all. It is debated that it is very similar to the cricothyroid articulation, which does not have the deterministic joint.
● What is the correct medical term for the conjunction between joints?
● How can we interpret why the glenoid cavity is ambiguous?
● How about the balance of tissue, with hinged and slide movements?
The red circle is the cricothyroid articulation
From my experience,the subluxation of cricothyroid articulation is not so rare and can be identified through precise palpation.
It’s difficult to diagnose on an X-ray, because you cannot look and know what directly caused the subluxation. It could be trauma, (the range of movement is different between right and left) or absence of movements, and is generally painless.
I would recommend you to have an examination. Especially if you train in voice or sing a lot, and it’s still hard to let out high-pitched tones.
This information is all based off of my personal experience, and why I believe, “the subluxation of cricothyroid articulation is similar to a dislocated elbow.”
Note:There are so many causes if you cannot let out high-pitched tone.
If you figure out what the cause of the problem is, it is possible to show improvement – up to 90%, without suffering deformities or an irreversible illness.
So, ask yourself, is your throat is Okay?
