A 26-year-old female client sustained a right distal radius fracture due to a fall on an outstretched hand (FOOSH) while riding her bike with her dog two weeks ago. She had an open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) and now has limited range of motion (ROM) in both her right wrist and hand. ROM measurements were completed in order to accurately determine her progress in therapy. Correct goniometer placement is of great importance when making clinical decisions and when looking at overall therapy outcomes.
