Assessment/diagnosis of wrist strain, sprain, and tendinitis is done using active and passive range of motion (ROM) as well as manual resistance (MR).
General orthopedic assessment testing includes three assessment techniques, two types of range of motion (ROM) assessment and manual resistance assessment.
If a physical examination assessment test creates signs/symptoms of the condition, it is positive and the therapist knows that tissue is unhealthy.
Before treatment can be given, it is necessary to have a clear understanding of the mechanism behind the musculoskeletal pathologic condition.
The most common signs and symptoms of spasmed muscles of the posterior neck are pain, a feeling of tightness, and restricted motion.
The assessment/diagnosis for low back muscle spasming begins with the verbal history and ROM and orthopedic assessment, and is confirmed with palpation.
A low back sprain and strain present a similar clinical picture. The client/patient will have low back spasming and pain, which will increase with motion.
