Various movement tests

Movement can be assessed in multiple manners. Straight plane movements such as trunk extension, flexion, and hip rotation are easy to administer. Gestures such as pulling a bow or climbing into bed can be used if they are what reproduce symptoms. A squat is also a nice method of globally assessing the lower body. We are looking for pain, restriction, or weakness and noting change in this with treatment. Photos by Colleen Whiteford.
