for my tailbone injury. The insurance/workman's comp sent me there. He said he had no idea who requested the exam so that he can be totally objective. He poked and proded, asked a ton of questions, looked at my initial x-rays etc. He had me lay on my belly and pushed on my poor tailbone, and all those lower back bones that hurt so much. I swear I left finger marks on the sides of the exam table. That and my hips are so tnder to anything! I sucked it up and let him do his thing. He played with my tailbone for a few more minutes and then asked me more questions. He was very very very nice. I just hope that he gives me a good enough write up for the exam that I have a leg to stand on when I either sue the company or get some sort of a disability settlemant from them. Wish me luck. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
