Sustained abnormal postures (i.e., fixed dystonia) are the most frequently reported motor abnormalities in complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), but these symptoms may also develop after peripheral trauma without CRPS. Currently, there is no valid and reliable measurement instrument available to measure the severity and distribution of these postures. The range of motion scale (ROMS) was therefore developed to assess the severity based on the possible active range of motion of all joints (arms, legs, trunk, and neck), and the present study evaluates its reliability and validity.

Abstract

Sustained abnormal postures (i.e., fixed dystonia) are the most frequently reported motor abnormalities in complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), but these symptoms may also develop after peripheral trauma without CRPS. Currently, there is no valid and reliable measurement instrument available to measure the severity and distribution of these postures. The range of motion scale (ROMS) was therefore developed to assess the severity based on the possible active range of motion of all joints (arms, legs, trunk, and neck), and the present study evaluates its reliability and validity.
