The Importance of Having Accurate Range of Motion Testing Reports

Range of Motion Testing Reports

The simplest everyday functions rely on the flexibility of our joints and muscles. And when your joints and/or muscles are injured, even the most basic tasks can be compromised. Muscles can only work on a moving joint, making your flexibility primary and your strength secondary.

In the event of an injury, range of motion (ROM) and muscle testing are essential to developing a proper treatment plan, one that is tailored to the unique needs of the individual. Manual range of motion testing can be subjective, as well as time-consuming. Insurance reimbursement and disability claims require accurate results that are precise and detailed, and must demonstrate a need for care.

Accurate and sufficient medical evidence in the form of reports are required for most medical claims, including Social Security disability, workers’ compensaRange of Motiontion, personal injury cases, and medical reimbursement. The injury must be assessed by a series of range of motion and limitation testing, and claims will be processed or denied based on these results, making them crucial to any settlement.
