Practical Guide to Range of Motion Assessment
Practical Guide to Range of Motion Assessmentoffers a systemic measurement approach to range of motion (ROM) that can be referenced and replicated. A valuable complement to the AMA Guides Fifth and Sixth, this reprint also has been updated with the latest tools and illustrations that demonstrate measurement techniques.
An accurate measurement of a patient's range of motion (ROM) is essential to determining maximum medical improvement and evaluating impairment and disability. Incorporating ROM measurement in your approach to evaluating impairment and disability provides you with the objective, functional data that supports medical reports and provides legal evidence.

This companion to Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment, Fifthand Sixth Editions, Practical Guide to Range of Motion Assessment provides instruction on a standardized method for measuring ROM. Guides Fifthassumes the user is experienced in measuring range of motion.
Increase Accuracy with Standardized Guidelines on ROM
This manual provides basic to proficient guidance that will enable physicians, physical therapists and other evaluators to obtain accurate ROM measurements using standardized guidelines, reference tables and reporting protocols. This consistent approach promises to produce greater intra- and interevaluator reliability. To increase accuracy, trained clinicians identify anatomic landmarks and properly position or stabilize the body to use a consistent technique to apply the measurement to the joint.
