Define ROM

For many therapists Range Of Motion assessment is quite a daunting task, very complex and time consuming.

Because a lot of them are NOT doing too well, they stop doing it altogether.

But you will find it is not nearly as bad as you thought if you go about it the right way.

The secret is to start small, rather than do nothing.

Do a little bit today and some more next time.

Grow your skills.

With success comes confidence, with confidence comes mastery.

This coursnip is the first in the ROM series and will get you familiar with the definitions of ROM!
