regarding straight leg raising
Sun Sep 18, 2005 21:38

Knee and ankle jerks are intact. Straight leg raising is negative. S/L*The right* yields back pain only on the left. Strength is intact in dorsiflexion of the feet.

does this make sense?

pain only on the left?
Straight leg raising is negative on the right, yields back

straight-leg-raising; or at least some QA people go nuts over hyphens on words like that.

my opinion: You should get dinged if you put it like THAT (nm)

anything so wonder why the hyphens?
I've never seen it like that either. It's not modifying (nm)
