During the examination, the Plaintiff told him her pain was a three out of ten, with a one being the lowest and ten being the highest. The results of his neurological examination and examination on the Plaintiff’s range of motion was normal.

October 16th 2013 I was at work performing my normal duties, when as I lifted on a box to put it on a self above my head, I felt and heard a tearing/popping sound coming from my left shoulder. I was in serious pain after that. My employer had me feel out an accident report, and then sent me to their doctor. After being examined by the doctor, I was told that I just strained my left shoulder and put me on a temporary restriction, which limited the amount of weight I could lift. I was also told to come back for physical therapy once a week. After 5 weeks of physical therapy and with the pain almost unbearable, I decided to go to my own doctor. My doctor examined me and immediately scheduled an MRI. The MRI showed that I had a tear down the

At this time, I also approached the possibility of settling this case pursuant to a compromise and release. As you know, the Stipulations with Request for Award we were ready to accept were for 24% PD paid at a rate of $160.00 per week. The stipulation was for the applicant’s lumbar spine and left knee only. The monetary value of this stipulation would be $15,280.00. I indicated to the applicant’s attorney that I had authority to settle the claim pursuant to a Compromise and Release for $24,000.00. After further discussions, the applicant’s attorney took the Stipulations and indicated he would discuss the Compromise and Release with the applicant.

She said, she fell last night while playing volley ball. She landed on her right shoulder and heard a pop sound, too. She did not take any pain medicines. She applied icepack and felt burning pain. This was an interesting musculoskeletal assessment case. We assessed her right shoulder and compared with the left one. We found slight dislocation of the shoulder joint. She had good circulation in her right arm, no swelling noted in the right hand and the capillary refill was < 2 secs. Mary said, since she had burning pain, it could be a nerve injury, too. We also noted a slight swelling of her trapezius muscle on the right side. She complained of pain on palpation. Mary applied a sling to her right arm to keep it elevated. She may need an MRI to see the damage. Mary sent her to the urgent care. She told her that, since she heard the popped sound, the ER or Urgent care doctor can replace it. It will be a painful procedure, and she will need a strong pain medicine. She gave her the note for her teacher and asked her friend to drive her to the urgent
