cyriax passive motion test

Mark Lafave, Larry Katz, Dale Butterwick
INTRODUCTION: Content validation of an instrument that measures student performance in OSCE-type practical examinations is a critical step in a tool's overall validity and reliability [Hopkins (1998), Educational and Psychological Measurement and Evaluation (8th ed.). Toronto: Allyn & Bacon]. PURPOSE: The purpose of the paper is to outline the process employed to create a content-valid Standardized Orthopedic Assessment Tool (SOAT). Orthopedic assessment skills are employed by athletic therapists, physiotherapists and physicians...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The present study was conducted to examine passive hip range of motion (PROM) for patients with hip dysfunction, including pain, with or without hip osteoarthritis, to arrange and describe PROM patterns and to count the number of hips presenting Cyriax's and Kaltenborn's capsular patterns. METHOD: The study is theory-testing, observational, cross-sectional and descriptive. One hundred and sixty-eight patients (mean age 61.7 years, range 36-90 years), 50 with no hip osteoarthritis, 77 with unilateral hip osteoarthritis and 41 with bilateral osteoarthritis, based on radiological reports, were consecutively recruited by physicians in primary health care and orthopaedic settings...

STUDY DESIGN: Descriptive. OBJECTIVES: To examine the relationship between pain and normal and abnormal-pathologic end-feels during passive physiologic motion assessment at the knee and shoulder. We theorized that abnormal-pathologic end-feels would be more painful than normal end-feels. BACKGROUND: End-feel testing and pain intensity information are part of physical therapy musculoskeletal patient examinations. End-feels are categorized as normal or abnormal-pathologic...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to examine whether there is evidence to support 2 elements of the passive-range-of-motion (PROM) portion of Cyriax's selective tissue tension scheme for patients with knee dysfunction: a capsular pattern of motion restriction and the pain-resistance sequence. SUBJECTS: One hundred fifty-two subjects with unilateral knee dysfunction participated. The subjects had a mean age of 40.0 years (SD=15.9, range=13-82)...

The Cyriax selective tension assessment paradigm is commonly used by clinicians for the diagnosis of soft tissue lesions; however, studies have not demonstrated that it is a valid method. The purpose of this study was to examine the construct validity of the active motion, passive motion, resisted movement, and palpation components of the Cyriax selective tension diagnosis paradigm in subjects with an exercise-induced minor hamstring muscle lesion. Nine female subjects with a mean age of 23.6 years (SD = 4...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: We explored the construct validity and test-retest reliability of the passive motion component of the Cyriax soft tissue diagnosis system. We compared the hypothesized and actual patterns of restriction, end-feel, and pain/resistance sequence (P/RS) of 79 subjects with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee and examined associations among these indicators of dysfunction and related constructs of joint motion, pain intensity, and chronicity. SUBJECTS: Subjects had a mean age of 68...
