Intra-examiner reliability of measurements of ankle range of motion using a modified inclinometer: a pilot study

August 22, 2017

A modified inclinometer was designed for measuring total ankle range of motion (ROM) in the standing position for a large future study. The purpose of this pilot study was to assess the intra-examiner reliability of this new device in order to see if the examiner would be able to produce equally reliable measurements with this

Differences in hip range of motion among collegiate pitchers when compared to youth and professional baseball pitcher data

September 09, 2016

The purpose of this study was to measure passive hip internal (IR) and external rotation (ER) range of motion (ROM) in collegiate baseball pitchers and compare to published youth and professional values. Measures were taken on the bilateral hips of 29 participants (mean age 20.0±1.4, range 18-22 years). Results identified no significant differences between the

Restriction of neck flexion using soft cervical collars: a preliminary study

July 31, 2014

This study investigates the use of dropped neck flexion as a manoeuvre to test the restrictive abilities of two different types of soft collars, an Airway soft cervical collar and a handmade cervical rough. The range of neck flexion of 40 asymptomatic subjects aged 20-29 was assessed, both with and without collar wear, using a

A review of functional outcome measures for cervical spine disorders: literature review

July 14, 2014

The purpose of this paper is to asses the reliability, validity and usefulness of three outcome measures: cervical ranges of motion, sagittal neck muscle strength and presence or absence of the flexion relaxation phenomenonn (FRP) in the neck. The literature search included the Index Medicus and computerized database of MEDLINE for relevant material. Articles were

Evaluation of lumbar intersegmental range of motion using flexion-extension radiographs of asymptomatic versus low back pain adults

July 14, 2014

In this descriptive study, acctive lumbar flexion-extension radiographs of low back pain patients and asymptomatic volunteers wre evaluated. The radiographs were evaluated to assess differences between the two groups using intersegmental angular and translational measurements. Average differences for angular and translational ranges of motion between groups were found, with a lower range of motion affecting
