In addition, findings from four studies (Chesworth et al 1998, Hayes and Petersen 2001, Patla and Paris 1993, Van Duijn and Jensen 2001) indicated that measuring end-feel or accessory movements of joints with large ranges of motion was associated with lower reliability.
Future research should focus on comparing inter-rater reliability of end-feel and accessory movements with passive physiological range of motion assessment, using symptomatic individuals.
