Poor localization Discussion

Poor localization of symptoms: Painful disorders of the upper extremity may be felt in a single location, easily pinpointed by the patient, or may be felt by the patient over a wide indeterminate area. Unfortunately, patients who can not put a finger on the single worst area of symptoms have a very low likelihood of being returned to preinjury status by cortisone injection or surgical treatment for a presumed localized problem.
