  10. Evaluation History Ask the right questions Listen to the patient Formulate a diagnosis Examination To confirm your diagnosis, not to make diagnosis Ordering additional tests Again, to confirm or r/o diagnosis.

  11. HistoryAsk the right questions • Critical questions • 1. Pain location • Central/Axial/Paraspinal • Refer HA or Arm Sx • True Radicular • 2. Pain quality • Dull ache • Sharp shooting –neck, occiput, arm • Burning vs. dysesthesia • 3. Pain Pattern - Diffuse Discrete • 4. Numbness – pattern, location • 5. Deficit – pattern/distribution • Not so critical questions • 1. Pain onset/inciting event • 2. Pain provocation • 3. Pain diminution • 4. Up-to-date Rx

  12. HistoryListen to the patient • Stumbling gait • Dropping things • Hand falling asleep • Skin feels burnt • Trouble going upstair • Urinary hesitancy • No pain • Woke up with weakness • Slowly getting worse

  13. HistoryDiagnosis formulation • Diffuse neck pain, HA, skin burning, TP – myofascial pain. • Discrete arm pain, not much neck pain, discrete deficit – radiculopathy • Weakness, no pain, no numbness – ALS • Hand numbness in median or ulnar pattern- CTS or cubbital Sx • Wrist extensor weakness- C7 or radial nerve • Radicular sx and entrapment sx - Double crush syndrome (C5 or 6 and CTS, C8 or T1 and ulnar)

  14. Examinationto confirm your diagnosis • Myofascial pain: Trigger points (supraspinatus, rhomboid, teres), no deficit • Myelopathy: spastic gait, hyperreflexia, path reflex • Radicular distribution deficit – radicular • C5: deltoid, infra/supraspinatus • C6: bicep, dorsal forarm, thumb, index finger • C7: tricep, index, middle finger, finger, wrist extension • C8: 4th,5th fingers, volar of forearm, grip weakness • T1: under arm, finger extension. • Peripheral entrapment • CTS: middle 3 fingers, grip weakness, + Phalen • Cubittal Sx: last 2 fingers, opponens, + Tinel • Radial nerve pathology

  15. Additional Teststo confirm your diagnosis • Myofascial pain- EMG/NCV if there is lots of refer Sx • Myelopathy: MRI • Radicular – MRI • Peripheral entrapment – EMG/NCV

  16. Treatment Plan Myelopathy with cord compression – surgery Radiculopathy with deficit – surgery +/- Myofascial Pain – Never surgery Peripheral Entrapment Sx - Maybe Double crush Sx – Depends Radiculopathy and Myofascial Pain - depends
