English translation:straightened, extended
Explanation:
12 out of 22 patients were not able to straighten the affected joint.

The patients can flex the knee or hip joints, but they can't straighten them.

At least one of Tom's URLs proves this:

Explanation:
(their) joint full range of motion was limited...

Refs:

"An individual with arthritis of the patellofemoral joint, for example, should not do full-range, isotonic leg extensions, which subject the patella to substantial stress"
(http://www.physsportsmed.com/issues/1997/07jul/dinubile.htm)

"Active exercises are done without assistance, but passive exercises are done with assistance, as this is usually required to achieve a full range-of-motion of each joint"
(http://alsnetwork.com/complica.htm)

Hope it helps!

Explanation:
mobility was irreversibly limited.

It means that these joints' mobility was irreversibly limited.

limited range of motion


Explanation:
This might be the clearest way to express the term "endgradig". Endgradig eingeschränkt simply means that the range of motion of the joint has decreased so that the natural endpoints of the motion can no longer be reached. This does not have to be irreversible.

Limited range of motion - A reduction in the natural distance and direction through which a joint can move.
Range of motion is the natural distance and direction of movement of a joint. Limited range of motion is a relative term indicating that a specific joint or body part cannot move through its normal and full range of motion.
Motion may be limited by a mechanical problem within the joint that prevents it from moving beyond a certain point, by swelling of tissue around the joint, by spasticity of the muscles, or by pain.
Diseases that prevent a joint from fully extending may, over time, produce contracture deformities, causing permanent inability to extend the joint beyond a certain fixed position.

Flexibility has been defined as the range of motion about a single joint or through a series of articulations. The maintenance of full non-restricted range of motion has long been recognized as essential for successful physical performance and injury prevention.
The goal of any effective flexibility program should be to improve the range of motion at a given joint by increasing the extensibility of the musculotendonous units that produce joint movement. A number of factors may limit the ability of a joint to move through a full unrestricted range of motion
BONY STRUCTURE: May restrict the endpoint in the range. In many instances, we rely on bony prominences to stop movements at normal endpoints in the range.
FAT: May also limit the ability to move through a full range of motion. The fat may act as a wedge between two lever arms, restricting movement.
SKIN: Might also be responsible for limiting movement. Some type of injury or surgery involving a incision or laceration particularly over a joint will result in inelastic tissue formed at that site.
CONNECTIVE TISSUE: Ligaments and joint capsules do have some elasticity, how-ever, if a joint is immobilized for a period of time, these structures tend to lose some elasticity and actually shorten. This condition is most common after surgical repair of an unstable joint or long period of inactivity.
MUSCLE AND TENDONS: Along with their surrounding fascial sheaths, muscles and tendons are most often responsible for limiting range of motion. The elastic properties of muscles can be used to improve flexibility. Over time, it is possible to increase the elasticity or length that a given muscle can be stretched.
With the exception of bony structures, all the factors that limit flexibility may be altered to increase range of joint motion. This may be accomplished using the two types of flexibility: static and dynamic. STATIC flexibility, important for injury prevention, refers to the degree which a joint can be passively moved to the endpoints in the range of motion. There are many sport situations in which a muscle is stretched beyond its normal active limits. If the muscle does not have enough elasticity to compensate for this additional stretch, it is likely that the musculotendious unit will be injured. DYNAMIC flexibility is important in athletic performance. It refers to the degree to which a joint can be moved by a muscular contraction, usually through the midrange of movement.
