Dr. Jeff Grosskopf – Wauwatosa Chiropractor
Chiropractors are often asked to do ROM testing during a patient evaluation. What is ROM testing?
ROM testing, or Range of Motion testing, is a commonly used technique by chiropractors. When chiropractors perform range of motion testing, they evaluate a patient’s balance, coordination, flexibility, strength, and stamina.
– If a chiropractor observes that one side of the patient is weaker than the other, they may recommend them to work with an occupational or physical therapist.
– ROM testing can also be used on stroke patients who have suffered from paralysis in their arms and legs. The test gives information about how much weakness exists in certain muscles because it tests ranges beyond just flexing at elbows and knees.
