Patients with chronic pain often suffer from a variety of neuromusculoskeletal issues which can be difficult to define with physical examination. In most cases, there are key physical examination features, and examination maneuvers that can help narrow the differential diagnosis. Through interactive discussion and the use of anatomical models, this workshop was developed to provide our attendees with the physical examination skills to accurately diagnose their patients’ neuromusculoskeletal issues, which will help us to efficiently provide our patients with diagnosis-specific therapies and improve their clinical outcomes.
