Total Range of Motion Measurements. The total ROM (sum for all planes of motion) was calculated for each patient for the cervical spine, upper extremity and lower extremity. Maximum possible total ROM is represented at the top of each graph by a dotted line. Each patient is represented individually. For the four patients with cervical ROM measurements, Patient 1 showed an improvement of 73%, Patient 2 improved by 31%, and Patient 3 improved by 24%. Patient 4 had a decline in function of 8%. Both patients with upper extremity ROM measurements show an improvement of over 100 degrees of ROM during the drug therapy with Patient 1 showing a 15% improvement and Patient 2 improving by 10%. For the single patient with lower extremity ROM measurements, there is a total improvement of approximately 50 degrees of ROM during the drug therapy which is 11% above baseline.
