Patients generally get very frustrated after being referred from specialist to specialist for disability evaluations.
The spectrum of opinions for one given patient can vary from no disability, to mild, to moderate, to severe. The patient cannot comprehend why nobody knows what is wrong with them. Additionally, being told by some that there is nothing wrong with them, but yet having persistent symptoms, causes them to start seeking out therapies on their own, due to their pain, but based on aquaintances experiences and other surrounding suggestions.
Remember, evaluating for disbility is THE most crucial component in getting a patient on the right track to healing after an injury. Most whiplash and whiplash related injuries ARE treatable.
