ABSTRACT
This presentation was given at the 2016 American Society for Peripheral Nerve as part of a panel describing the experiences and cases that the panelists learned the most from. In this presentation, the primary author describes her experiences with the pain evaluation as one of the most essential tools for diagnoses patients with nerve injuries. Additional discussion on dealing with difficult patients and the utility of the scratch collapse test are included. Finally, the primary author discusses her experience with the controversy surrounding cumulative trauma disorder and the movement towards a new term called posture-related upper extremity pain (PRUEP).
