Physical Therapy -> Range of Motion -> Passive

Passive

In passive range of motion exercises, the patient does not perform any movement themselves; instead, the therapist moves the limb or body part around the stiff joint, gently stretching muscles and reminding them how to move correctly.

Goal Bank

  • Hazel will accept weight through bilateral LE in a bench seat position with feet flat on the floor for at least 3 seconds with CGA to demonstrate improve active and passive ankle range of motion over 3 therapy sessions.
  • Claudine will demonstrate improved ankle/foot alignment in 5 out of 5 attempts either through movement/strengthening or through ankle-foot orthoses (AFO)s, in order to improve independence with transitions, standing, gait, and stair negotiation over 5 therapy sessions.
