Need Evidence For Military-Related Pain?

by Bilel Nissen

Pain is a difficult thing to prove. Some pain can be clearly linked to an injuring event or as a result of a documented illness, but some forms of pain are more ambiguous. As a military veteran, you face dangers that may not even be noticed until after you take off your uniform for the last time and slow down from the military pace. Here's an overview of how your pain can be difficult to prove while being quite real, along with ways to find relief and possible compensation with the help of a physical therapy team.

Hard To See Pain Problems

Wear and tear is something that happens to everyone and everything. Hard jobs can accelerate joint and nerve pain, and the military increases the average amount of pain no matter the kind of job you take. Simply wearing those not at all ergonomic boots and walking around is bad for your ankles and spine, and if you have to exercise in them, just go ahead and put in a Veterans Affairs (VA) claim on principle.

The problem is that many of these pain problems can't be easily proven. If you have a torn muscle, broken or fractured bone evidence, or nerve damage that can be shown on a CT scan (Computed tomography scan) or X-ray, you can usually use that information as evidence to get some monetary and medical compensation from the VA.

If you don't have any of that evidence, you'll need a professional who can take a closer look--both for compensation and relief.

A Physical Therapist Can Get A Closer Look

CT scans, X-rays, and even basic physical examinations from a doctor's visit are just the beginning of your experience. Physical therapists can employ a few more direct examinations through joint and muscle inspection.

The inspections are a bit more in-depth than the standard muscle and gland-area squeezing inspections in most doctor's offices. These tests may include stimulation in specific areas, and introducing different medications that should illicit a specific response in a healthy body.

Surgical examination is a last resort, as it doesn't make much sense to cut into a body that doesn't have a proven problem. It's not a good tactic from a legal standpoint as well, because it's easy for a fraudster to claim that their surgery scars are evidence of a problem or to take advantage of any kind of medical malpractice that may happen.

Instead, allow physical therapists to look through joint therapy and chiropractic techniques, along with the help of a neurologist to check for any nerve or brain-signaled problems. Contact a physical therapy professional and schedule an appointment to reduce pain and push for claim system success with new evidence.
