One purpose of joint ROM evaluation is to establish a baseline for an individual's ROM in a joint. T or F True, this allows for comparison of the normal range for that patient or can be used to compare ROM available in the unaffected side.
Database ROM values can: (a)show progression, (b)show need for modification of treatment, (c)provide documentation for legal evidence, (d)all D,Documented baseline values provide documented evidence to third party payers of progression or need for modification.
The ROM eval. results cannot be used in Workman's comp cases. T or F False
Hypomobility and hypermobility of joint function does not interfere with ADL's. T or F False
Hypomobility describes joint ROM that is due to the patient being lazy. T or F False, Hypomobility is decreased ROM due to joint tightness.
An ergonomic study research could use ROM eval results to design ideal products for the average person. T or F True
A patient would have no interest in seeing their ROM results. T or F False, ROM eval results could be used to motivate patients.
Research conducted on determining the effectiveness of treatment regimes would not be enhanced by ROM eval results. T or F False
Goniometry is not useful when there is suspected limitation of motion. T or False False
Documentation of abnormal or fixed joint positions do not have to be communicated to other healthcare staff. Just record the findings on discharge. False
A fixed joint position is called a contracture. T or F True
AROM can determine a patient's muscle _______,willingness to move, and their overall coordination. strength
Which motion is greater AROM or PROM? PROM
PROM is greater than AROM because a joint has some additional motion available. Where does this occur? At the end of the range, not under voluntary control.
The purpose of the additional available motion not under voluntary control is to absorb intrinsic forces and protect the joint. T or F False, it protects against extrinsic forces and protects the joint.
PROM would not be helpful in determining whether a certain motion causes symptoms. T or F False
PROM can reveal the type of tissue resistance. T or F True
Tissue resistance, or the feeling occurring at the end of PROM is called the End Determination. T or F False, it is called the end feel.
There are no differences in end feels, all are the same. T or F False
Normal end feels are classified as ________, ________, and hard. Soft,Firm
PROM that is less than AROM is usually due to patient guarding or not being relaxed. T or F True
A Soft end feel is an abrupt increase in resistance, like when flexing the elbow. T or F False, a soft end feel is a gradual increase in resistance as soft tissue approximation occurs as with elbow flexion.
Firm end feels are abrupt increases in resistance due to muscle or capsular tension. T or F True
A "creep" may be described as a give that is felt as the tissue is being stretched. T or F True
A Hard end feel is gradual and does not involve stoppage of the joint movement. That's called 'bone on bone' movement. T or F False, Hard end feels are abrupt stoppages of joint movements as with the 'bone on bone' feeling that occurs with elbow extension.
An example of a Firm end feel is hip extension with knee flexion. T or F False, hip flexion with knee extension produces the feeling due to the stretch of the muscle tissue.
Abnormal end feels can be described as occurring sooner or later in the ROM than what is typical for that joint. T or F True
Empty end feels can be classified as soft, firm or hard. The emptiness relates to the joint structure. T or F False, they can't be categorized, and are due to patient guarding, muscle spasm, or noncompliance.
Muscular end feels occur with tight or reactive muscles but not with spasmy muscles. T or F False, all are causes
Capsular end feels occur with stiff, painful, leathery joints but are not in a specified pattern of LOM. T or F False, all are present
Ligamentous end feels is firm and this is normal. T or F False, this is an abnormal end feel.
Springy end feels relate to tendons, and are normal. T or F False, springy end feels are abnormal if they are cartilaginous.
Overpressure is the pressure an examiner applies at the beginning of ROM so that there will be slack at the end of the motion. T or F False, Overpressure is applied by the examiner at the end to take up slack of motion remaining in the joint.
Proximal joint component describes the portion of the joint below the joint axis. T or F False, Above
The movement arm is aligned in the proximal joint component. An example would be the humerus for elbow flexion. T or F The stationary arm is aligned.
