An Occupational Therapy Assessment for Range of Motion & Manual Muscle Strength
Gail Dadio, Jerilyn Nolan
Clinical Pathways, an exciting first edition, helps students learn how to proficiently conduct range of motion (ROM) and manual muscle (MMT) assessment for the main joint structures of the body. Focusing heavily on clinical application, the text also provides a novel, OT-focused “Clinical Pathways of Assessment” model that connects physical assessment with a clinical decision-making process. This model helps students develop the skills to effectively evaluate a client through an occupational profile and performance. Client-centered outcome measures are used to assess the client’s functional ability in the performance of their daily occupations. Ultimately, using this framework will help to prepare for the process of designing and modifying the treatment plan to achieve optimum results.
