I have a question that has been bugging me since I saw a new ortho spine specialist new to my area.
I was tired of the long commutes to the University Hospital so I decided to try this new local Dr.
I have had many neurological exams that go along with my diagnosis of myelopathy ,stenosis,etc.
He was checking my reflexes but did not use the hammer(I don't know what its called). He flicked my knees and elbows with his fingers like he was flicking away a bug. He told me my reflexes were normal . Has anyone ever had this done and is this an acceptable exam?
