Understanding Limited Range Of Motion For Joints

Limited range of motion (ROM) for joints can be an uncomfortable and even painful condition.

It is characterized by restricted movement in one or more joints, with the most common joint affected being the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, and ankle.

The condition can be caused by arthritis, injuries to muscles or tendons, fibromyalgia, bursitis, and other conditions.

Symptoms include stiffness and pain when attempting to move the joint beyond its normal range of motion; clicking or grinding sensations when moving it; swelling in the area; heat around the joint; and reduced flexibility.

At BURD Physical Therapy we specialize in treating all of these issues associated with limited range of motion for joints.

We use a combination of manual therapies such as massage and stretching techniques and specific exercises to increase ROM while reducing inflammation.

Through our evaluations, we will measure your current level of ROM so that we can track our progress throughout treatment.
