This is a list of average Range of Motion measurements for various joints of the body.
It is not all inclusive ... yet.  We'll throw more in as we go. 

It should be noted that these measurements are more or less a starting point and are not nor should not be considered expected measurements for all patients.  Many factors should be considered when measuring joint range of motion and determining the final end range for each individual patient.  Soft tissue as well hyper/hypo mobility are just a couple of factors that need to be taken into account. 

If you would like to help update this list feel free to send us an e-mail - leswynn@netkennel.com
