    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

I Do Not Know What This Means?


Hello everyone,

I have been on here from time to time and my husband had a C&P exam om the 29th of June and the ortho dr. said that ... He is flexed forwaed 30 degrees. He cannot stand or walk on the heel or toes. he cannot squat.

Low back pain

Range of motion is 40 degrees flexxed, he lacks 30 degrees of extension, 5 degrees right lateral bend, 5 degrees left lateral bend, 5 degrees rotation to the rigth and left. After the final range of motion there is pain, fatigability, weakness, lack of endurance, but no incoordination throughout the entire range of motion.

Diagnosis : Lumbar strain

Right Knee tendonopathy

Range of motion rigth knee lacks 15 degrees full extension and flexes to 80 degrees whrn he is sitting and trying to extend against gravity, but when supine the right knee comes to full extension of 0... which one are they going to use?

Diagnosis Patellar Tendon Contusion right knee

Thank you.

thank you for that, but i am wondering which one will they use, the one where he is sitting or standing? I have been looking at appeals all day and ity says nothing about sitting or supine. What does lacking 30 deg. mean? This is something new i was reding in the report, the examiner said that the pain he has in his knee and back is more likeley that not because if his PTSD, that does not sound right at all?

Is there any way you can post the exam. From what you have listed so far, they are saying that the pain in his knee and back are not cause by his PTSD. Do you have medical prove to the alternate? They will use the total report standing and sitting. No one can say what the rating will take from a report when there is conflicting information. You will just have to wait and see.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
