Interexaminer reliability of cervical motion palpation using continuous measures and rater confidence levels

May 21, 2014

Introduction: Motion palpators usually rate the movement of each spinal level palpated, and their reliability is assessed based upon discrete paired observations. We hypothesized that asking motion palpators to identify the most fixated cervical spinal level to allow calculating reliability at the group level might be a useful alternative approach. Methods: Three examiners palpated 29
