Range of Motion

Range of motion (ROM) is a measurement of how far an individual can move a specific joint or other body part. When range of motion is impacted, an individual is unable to move a body part around a joint comfortably. With Limited ROM in one or more joints, an individual’s body may compensate by placing stress on other joints or muscles, resulting in muscle imbalance and improper body alignment. Poor alignment and muscle imbalance present a greater risk of injury and pain and reduce functional mobility. Limited range of motion can also contribute to mental health issues, including depression.

Therapist can assess Range of Motion and design a therapy, exercise and stretching program to help improve one’s ROM. When completed correctly and thoroughly, range of motion therapy can help:

  • Improve strength and flexibility
  • Reduce pain and discomfort
  • Improve circulation
  • Lessen stiffness
  • Reduce the risk of reinjury
  • Improve mood
