Preamble: Many of the issues I bring to you are very small, yet each issue is just that, an issue. If you take care of the small issues, then you will be able to build and more importantly, focus on the bigger issues...a larger practice and more family time.

"Case Management- Case Report”

A new case management report has been posted on the site:

2. An MVA patient was referred by a DC to a neurosurgeon with severe generalized pain… no surgery was indicated, now what do I do?

A 29 year old male patient has localized cervical pain 9/10, with no radiating pain. I took x-rays that appeared to have a compression deformity. I sent the patient to a neurosurgeon who sent the patient back with a note that is was a possible deformity, but inconclusive and surgery wasn’t indicated. What do I do now as the patient is still in severe pain and I have no conclusive diagnosis? Do I adjust the patient and hope they will get well, do I refer the patient out to another specialist?
