What is Hard End Feel? Hard and abrupt (bony end feel) Ex: Elbow extension
What is Firm End Feel? Soft tissue stretch Ex: Shoulder Internal/External Rotation, Knee extension
What is Soft End Feel? Soft tissue/muscles bulk Ex: Elbow flexion
Movement in the synovial joint that is independent and CANNOT be reproduced by voluntary muscle contraction? Joint Play
Passive movement that is usually applied to an injured area of the body? Joint Mobilization
Done under anesthesia, very painful and uses a lot of force Joint Manipulation
