Independent Rheumatology Evaluation

An Independent Rheumatological Evaluation is recommended in the evaluation of a claimant who presents with a painful disorder that affects the locomotor system. Independent rheumatological evaluators specialize in the assessment of joints, muscles, connective tissue, soft tissue surrounding joint and bones and autoimmune disorders as related to incident-related and/or pre-existing medical conditions. Examples of some of the disorders within the scope of rheumatology to assess and treat are arthritis, lupus or other autoimmune diseases, musculoskeletal pain disorders such as fibromyalgia and myofascial pain syndrome, and osteoporosis.
