1

What are the 4 patterns associated with AROM/PROM?

ROM, WNL, pain free (normal)
Pain and limitation in all directions
Pain and limitation (or hypermobility) in some directions
Limited ROM and pain free

2

Contractile tissue

Pain w/ AROM in same direction
Pain w/ A/PROM in opposite direction

3

Noncontractile tissue

No pain w/ AROM in same direction
Pain w/ A/PROM in opposite direction

4

Strong and painless muscle contraction

No lesion of motor unit or nervous tissue supplying it

5

Strong and painful muscle contraction

Local lesion (minor tweak) of muscle or tendon (strain)

6

Weak and painless muscle contraction

Rupture of muscle or its tendon or involvement of peripheral n. or n. root supplying it - neurological involvement or tendon rupture should be suspected first

7

Weak and painful muscle contraction

Severe lesion around involved joint (i.e. fx) - weakness can be result of muscles around the joint secondary to pain (or severe strain)
