CHIEF COMPLAINT & HISTORY OF PRESENTING ILLNESS
Sixty-three year old male patient, retired Navy, complains of arthritis and decreased
range of motion in the fingers bilaterally. Originally the patient came to the clinic seeking
treatment for dull pain and weakness in the right hip and legs. That condition began after
moving heavy boxes sideways a year ago, and began as a groin pain (possibly related to skiing)
near the inguinal groove, as indicated by the patient pointing, and radiated down the quadriceps
femoris muscle to just under the patella and pes-anserine.
