M.G., an orthopaedic surgeon, is stopped in the hallway of his hospital by one of his medical colleagues. The physician begins to ask several questions regarding a recent onset of shoulder pain. M.G. suggests that the colleague be seen in the office so that a complete evaluation of the shoulder can be performed. The colleague asks if he can try some home exercises and anti-inflammatory medications first. M.G. shows him some basic shoulder exercises. Several weeks later, the colleague meets M.G. again and is furious at him, stating that the problem was not his shoulder at all but rather a cervical disc herniation.
