Terry, any objective way you document degrees of motion, like with two bubble inclinometers or do you just go off qualitative measurement?
Thanks Steve for your questions. I base it off of qualitative measurement, but you can use a tape measure like the “Modified Schrober’s Test” for Ankylosing Spondylitis, measuring 5 cm below a line bisecting PSIS and 10 cm above that line in standing, have them flex and remeasure. I use it if I think flexion is significantly restricted and in my writing I reference the test to demonstrate that this observation of ROM can be valid. Here is a link for the test https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9RaFB5BwrQ and the reference I use is found at this link http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16019864. Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
