Assessment/diagnosis of wrist strain, sprain, and tendinitis is done using active and passive range of motion (ROM) as well as manual resistance (MR).
Neck General Orthopedic Assessment: Range of Motion and Manual Resistance
General orthopedic assessment testing includes three assessment techniques, two types of range of motion (ROM) assessment and manual resistance assessment.
Overview of Physical Examination Assessment of the Neck
If a physical examination assessment test creates signs/symptoms of the condition, it is positive and the therapist knows that tissue is unhealthy.
Introduction to Assessment/Diagnosis of the Neck
Before treatment can be given, it is necessary to have a clear understanding of the mechanism behind the musculoskeletal pathologic condition.
Signs, symptoms, and assessment (diagnosis) of spasmed muscles in the neck
The most common signs and symptoms of spasmed muscles of the posterior neck are pain, a feeling of tightness, and restricted motion.
Signs, symptoms, and assessment of spasmed muscles in the low back
The assessment/diagnosis for low back muscle spasming begins with the verbal history and ROM and orthopedic assessment, and is confirmed with palpation.
Signs, symptoms, and assessment of low back strains and sprains
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.
