Event description

Description

A systematic process of gathering information, which provides the therapist the information necessary to determine appropriate treatment. Identify the tissues involved and assess their dysfunction. The therapist will utilize the below techniques to assess the client. With these assessments we can ascertain which techniques may assist the client in less pain. Range of motion and resistive testing (Protocol) 1)Evaluate the client’s ability to move actively Active ROM use both contractile tissues (muscles and tendons) which produce movement and inert tissues (nerves, bursa and fascia) 2)Evaluate the clients ability to move passively Passive ROM uses the inert tissues (joints, nerves, bursa and fascia) which reveal different symptoms than contractile tissues 3)Evaluate the clients ability against resistance (isometric movements) These tests may confirm the active tests. Since these tests involve no movement the inert tissues are not involved. These tests involve the proper contraction of muscles and tendons 4)Special tests These tests are Orthopedics tests and may indicate a specific problem such as rotator cuff tears and carpal tunnel syndrome. The tests results are either positive or negative. 5) Joint Capsule Work While checking client`s range of motion observe the end feel of the movement. If the end feel is bone on bone like perform capsule work. If end feel is leather in feel perform soft tissue work.
