Spinal Motion Palpation: A Comparison of Studies That Assessed Intersegmental End Feel Vs Excursion

Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Thera... 31(8):616 (2008) PMID 18984245

Objective Spinal motion palpation (MP) is a procedure used to detect intersegmental hypomobility/hypermobility. Different means of assessing intersegmental mobility are described, assessing either excursion of the segments (quantity of movement) or end feel (quality of motion when stressed against the paraphysiological space). The objective of this review was to classify and compare studies based on method of MP used, considering that some studies may have used both methods.
