Good Day to All!!
If the VA Rater has been provided a claim with MRI/X-Ray evidence of Degenerative Arthritis (Osteoarthritis of the knees, for example), is a C&P Exam for range of motion still required, or can the rater assign a rating of 10 or 20 percent without a C&P Exam?
Also, for Osteoarthritis of the Cervical Spine, and Spinal Stenosis and Disk Dissication of the Cervical Spine with neural radiculopathy, how can/are these rated?
Thank you for your input!
