Abstract

The range-of-motion box enables the operator to visualize how to carry a joint through extremes of motion range for range-of-motion evaluations and to locate the position of comfort in relaxation of tender points. It is helpful for teaching the novice counterstrain manipulation and for instructing fellow practitioners. Examples are illustrated for the cervicothoracic region, but the concept is applicable to other parts of the body as well.
