HAND SURGERY, NEUROLOGY
A movement that an active and highly-motivated person performs to circumvent limitations of musculoskeletal paralysis.
Trick movements are never normal and often bizarre and uncoordinated. Prolonged trick type compensation may stretch various hand tissues and the trick movement may persist despite surgical correction, either due to the tissue stretching or because the habit formed is difficult to unlearn.
