1

Produced by bone-to-bone approximation...

Bony

2

Abrupt and unyielding; gives impression that further forcing will break something

Bony

3

Example of bony end-feel

Elbow extension

4

Abnormal end-feel c C/s rot...

Bony ==> osteophytes

5

Produced by muscle-tendon unit; may occur c adaptive shortening

Elastic

6

Stretches c elastic recoil and exhibits constant-length phenomenon; further forcing feels as if it will snap something

Elastic

7

Examples of elastic end-feel?

Wrist flexion c finger flexion
SLR
Ankle DF c knee extended

8

Abnormal end-feel of decreased DF c knee flexed

Elastic

9

Produced by contact of two muscle bulks on either side of a flexing joint where joint range exceeds other restraints

Soft-tissue approximation

10

Very forgiving end-feel that gives impression that further normal motion is possible if enough force could be applied

Soft-tissue approximation

11

Example of soft-tissue approximation end-feel...

Knee flexion in muscular Pt.
Elbow flexion in muscular Pt.

12

Abnormal elbow flexion end-feel in obese Pt.

Soft-tissue approximation

13

Produced by capsule or ligaments

Capsular

14

Various degrees of stretch s elasticity; stretch ability dependent on thickness of tissue

Capsular

15

Strong capsular or extracapsular ligaments produce hard capsular end-feel, whereas thin capsular produces softer one

Capsular

16

Impression given to clinician ==> further force application will tear something

Capsular

17

Examples of capsular end-feels...

Wrist flexion (soft)
Elbow flexion in SUP (medium)
Knee extension (hard)

18

Inappropriate stretch ability for specific joint, and if too hard may indicate hypomobility due to arthrosis, and if too soft, hypermobility

Abnormal capsular end-feel
