AROM, AbnROM, and PAIVMs ratings were collapsed to a 3 point ordinal scale, with 0 indicating hypomobility, 1 indicating normal motion, and 2 indicating hypermobility.
Two assessments, AROM and PAIVMs (both 75%) returned higher values for sensitivity than specificity.
Despite their widespread use, the validity of PAIVMs and PPIVMs for assessing abnormal sagittal rotation motion has not been established.
