C & P Exam Result What Does It Mean



Just got my C&P exam for my tinnitus the audiologist put at least as likely as not caused by or a result of military noise exposure. Acoustic trauma has been conceded. For my back and ankle the opinion states the Veterans current right ankle and back disabilities are incurred in or caused by his active duty service as well documented in his SMR. Separation physical showed recurrent back pain and ankle sprain in 1993. My question is what does all this mean.

It means that the tinnitus should be decided in your favor based on the opinion of the examiner. The "at least as likely as not" means there's a 50% chance the issue is due to military service and the benefit of the doubt should fall to you = granted (10% is max for this). Also, the second contention was linked by the examiner directly to service. I'd prefer not to use a crystal ball, but I'd bet both will be decided in your favor. It isn't clear to what degree the second issue would be rated and guessing would be just that... Best of luck!

For the back and ankle is that based on ROM alone or can pain on ROM be also a factor.

For my back I do have ROM of 70 foward flexion,50 painful motion begins,25 extension ends,15 extension painful motion begins,30 lateral ends,20 lateral evidence of pain begins, 30 lateral ends,20 lateral flexation evidence of pain begins,30 right lateral rotation ends,20 lateral evidence of pain begins.For the post-test forward flexion ends 70, post-test extension ends 25,right lateral flexion ends 30,left flexion ends 30, right lateral rotation ends 30,left lateral rotation ends 30 .

For the ankle ROM is planter flexion end 40,planter pain begins 30,dorsiflexion 15,dorsiflexion pain begins 10,post-test plantar ends 40, post-test dorsiflexion 15.

Does the numbers look in my favor or against me.

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.


    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    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
