How can Computer Range of Motion Testing help you?
Numerous decisions regarding patient status and treatment are based wholly or in part on joint motion measurements. This highly accurate testing is commonly used to determine the extent of limited range of motion in order to help properly diagnose the patient’s disorder, as well as to determine the effectiveness of treatment.
Limited range of motion can result from: mechanical problems, muscle spasticity, joint pain, inflammation, swelling, infection, injury, and disease.

Electric stimulation uses an electrical current to cause a single muscle or a group of muscles to contract. By placing electrodes on the skin in various locations, the physical therapist can recruit the appropriate muscle fibers. Contracting the muscle via electrical stimulation helps strengthen the affected muscle. The physical therapist can change the current setting to allow for a forceful or gentle muscle contraction. Along with increasing muscle strength, the contraction of the muscle also promotes blood supply to the area that assists in healing.
