And annpsu25:  Ask your instructors their opinion regarding use of PROM and PTA's.  The act indicates that you can perform this task "within available ROM", so does that mean you can perform stretching to a tight shoulder, ankle, knee, etc?  In my opinion, as the stretch is being performed, the joint is in that position, therefore it certainly is "available".

I believe we discussed this in class quite a while ago and I cannot remember what was said. I will be sure to bring this up to my instructor.

Also, in our program we have been tought the grades for mobs and have been asked questions regarding convex/concave (ex: impingement- what directions would you move the joint), but have not been taught how to do them (which would be in violation).

The reason in teaching this is these questions will be asked on our boards.  We have also had PTA students in the past go out on their clinicals and be asked to perform mobs.  Our instructor wants us to know these grades, etc. so we have some knowledge.

Hi All...
Im a student PTA in Ri who is graduating in a few months. At my current clinical Ive been exposed to joint mobs and been enjoying using them in my practice. With my upcoming job search Im trying to research what each state in NE allows PTA to do. I know Ma is peripheral only, Ri is both peripheral and spinal...
Does anyone know about VT, CT, NH, & ME
Thank you for the help

I don't have a problem with a PTA doing joint mobilizations as long as they have been trained and know what they are doing.
