Pinched Nerve in Neck is the Culprit — 4 Comments

  1. I’m glad you’ll be seeing a physiatrist DB. I had no idea what these doctors did until husband did an annual report for their national organization. In the coarse of proofing it, I learned a lot about how helpful they can be.

  2. I see your point, Warrior, but it just struck me so odd. Even the Chair of the Neurology Dept. at UAB, internationally known and respected, doesn’t screen patients in this way.

    But I’m sure you are right, that there are plenty of patients who would not benefit from his services. I think I’ll get my Neuro to send him some information, too. That might increase my chances of getting to see him.

    We’ll be in town tomorrow, so it won’t be any trouble to sign the release form to get my records sent to the Physiatrist.

    You’ve both made me feel much better about this doctor, and I certainly hope to get to see him.

  3. Good luck with the Physiatrist. They can indeed work wonders. Just a little FYI – the reason the physiatrist wants to look over your files before making an appointment is as much for your benefit as it is for his/hers. Because of the nature of the specialty, not everyone will benefit from his services. By looking at your records first, they will have a pretty good idea if any of their services will help you, or in some cases make your symptoms worse. I hope everything works out well for you.
