The Use of Physical Agents in Improving Range of Motion: An Evidenced Based Approach


Course Description

Course Description:

Range of motion (ROM) limitations are associated with many of the conditions commonly seen in rehab, including stroke, multiple sclerosis, and osteoarthritis. A critical part of effective restoration of ROM is being able to identify what factors/issues are responsible for limiting ROM. These may include pain, edema, joint capsule tightness, articular surface damage, muscle shortness, and spasticity. This course focuses on the specific use of physical agent modalities to facilitate restoration of range of motion, especially when used in conjunction with other typical rehab interventions. Several demonstration videos are presented in this course to help participants integrate new information into clinical practice.
