What exactly does Objective Medical Finding mean?
My Worker's Compensation wants to know My Doctor keeps telling them but they do not listen so I would like to know exactly what it means.

In medical terms, an objective finding would be something that a nurse , doctor, an MRI machine etc can see for themselves. Subjective basically means that the patient is complaining of symptoms but we cant actually see it. EXAMPLE: Pt is complaining of back pain....this is subjective because we CANT see the pain. However, on the other hand, if a patient was complaining of shortness of breath and we see the pt breathing funny or having short fast respirations etc..that is objective because we can SEE it...make sense?

Subjective is something that you would tell the doctor, i.e. you bent forward to pick something up and hurt your back. An objective would mean some type of evidence to back up your complaint, i.e. muscle spasm that can be felt by the doctor, abnormal x-ray findings, etc.

As a physical therapist, if I can push on an area that reproduces your pain or symptoms, that tells me a lot as to where your problem is. That allows me to treat you more effectively.

If I cannot objectively concur with your subjective history, that is not to say that you are necessarily faking - just that more testing needs to be done.
