One evaluates both quality and range of motion in that spinal segment in addition to any soft tissue changes.

The third step, therefore becomes necessary for further differential workup. Motion restriction Goint hypomobility) due to a somatic dysfunction has the following characteristics: motion in the incriminated joint is never totally lost, but is more restricted in one direction than another.
